Buttons for Change - Launchability
LaunchAbility is one of ABM’s original BFC Partners. Their mission is to empower adults and veterans with disabilities to achieve their maximum potential and lead fulfilling lives within the community. For the past 5 decades, they have partnered with all types of businesses to find meaningful employment for their very capable clients.
Working closely with not only the hiring managers, but also the existing employees within a company, LaunchAbility staff matches the right person to the right job. LaunchAbility believes in hiring individuals for their abilities, for what they can do. Not bypassing a person because of what they can’t do.
Working with companies such as Tom Thumb, Bank of America, Walgreen’s, Target and CineMark (to name a few) LaunchAbility has helped change many, many lives. These employers understand disability hiring is a component of the Diversity equation and strong Corporate Citizenship honors everyone who can contribute.
Says Randy Lewis, SVP of Supply Chain and Logistics with Walgreen’s, “It’s not charity. It’s good business sense.” LaunchAbility clients are dedicated individuals who typically stay with their employers for five or more years. A great retention rate in this increasingly “move on after a year” world. The employees tend to be punctual and loyal as well, proving to have a strong work ethic. ABM is proud to be a LaunchAbility employer. We hope to continue a successful partnership with LaunchAbility for many years to come.
