WATCH: Man with Disability Earns Promotion

This is the story of Joseph. A reminder that everyone can make a great employee.

As Annette Bourbonniere, who has a disability, said in her recent story with us, “Most people can work with the right supports. You hire the ability and you accommodate the disability.”

Joseph is thriving and those who around him say he is growing everyday.

“His confidence has increased. He is always asking to learn new things.”- Eric, Technical Director & Operations Manager of the laboratory Joseph works in.

Of all the stories we have told, this workplace is one of the most unique. We hope you enjoy!
