As an employer we are very proud to be involved with Semiahmoo House and their Customized Employment Program promoting inclusivity in the workplace. Semiahmoo House worked with us to determine our business’ needs, and matched us with appropriate job seekers based on their strengths, and interests. We were lucky enough to match with Amanda Hart who has been a welcome addition into our work family at GroupHEALTH. Having Amanda fit seamlessly into our day to day life has been very inspiring for our team. She supports us three times per week and assists with filing, watering of plants, refilling paper in copiers, printing labels, workstation preparation, mail, and various other administrative tasks. Not only does Amanda help us significantly in the office, but she has also opened our eyes to the positive outcomes that are possible when you include individuals with diverse abilities in the workplace. Amanda is a loyal, dedicated, and confident worker, and her upbeat attitude continues to have a positive influence on our team. We are thrilled with the success we have had in hiring Amanda and strongly recommend Semiahmoo House’s Customized Employment Program to all employers.
