At Proslide Technology, teamwork is the essence of their corporate culture; their employees function as individual units to support the team’s overarching goals.
They are inclusive by design. “It is important to find the right person when hiring,” says Sarah Jensen, the Talent and Culture Generalist at ProSlide. “Skill set is important, however, a fit with our team is essential for each employee’s success.”
In 2017, Eric Pusey came to PPRC looking to find employment in the field he loved at the place he remembered: ProSlide Technology. “It was a dream of mine to be part of this company,” he says. PPRC’s team of Rehabilitation Consultants worked with ProSlide and in 2018, Pusey was hired.
It has been a successful match; Pusey works cleaning the lunchrooms and break rooms. He keeps the ProSlide welcoming and clean. He greets everyone. “I love it, it is a complete team effort,” says Pusey. “PPRC are really good at finding a good fit and they helped me get used to the work.”
Lynne Babin, the Office Manager at ProSlide, says Pusey is amazing. “He is good at what he does, he makes everyone feel welcome and he remembers the little things,” she says.
ProSlide and PPRC have worked together before; this is their third placement. “We partner together with PPRC and they provide supportive job coaching, which has allowed Eric to be so successful in his role,” says Jensen.
“We are proud of our successes, but we are even more proud of our clients and employers who work together to make the match a success,” says Brittany Williston, PPRC Rehabilitation Consultant.
PPRC believes everyone has the ability to be employed. We need to help our clients recognize their abilities and crystalize their job goal. Next, we match them with an employer who has a need and a willingness to provide the opportunity. Inclusive hiring is a business mindset that brings benefits to the bottom line, creates opportunities, and strengthens a company’s position within the market.
PPRC offers placement services for persons with disabilities at no cost to the employer. This hidden talent pool is smart for business and provides a solution where everyone benefits.
