Atlantic Grocery Distributors Ltd., on behalf of the Powell Group of Companies, is truly honoured to be this year’s recipient of MRON’s Employer of Merit Award. This award recognizes employers who have made an outstanding contribution to the increased employment of persons with development disabilities throughout the Baccalieu Trail.
Mariner Resource Opportunities Network (MRON) Inc.’s Supported Employment Services Annual Appreciation Night, held November 24th, was a time to celebrate clients, co-workers, and employers who have made 2016 a year of success for job placements for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
Research shows that high-performance organizations like Atlantic Grocery Distributors are 37% more likely to hire people with intellectual disabilities because they see the talent and skill matching potential. Supported employment partnerships such as MRON help employers match the right candidate to the right job and provide support every step of the way.
Below is a video of Tim King, Atlantic Grocery Distributors Ltd. employee in partnership with MRON, delivering a short but passionate acceptance speech during the Appreciation Night and photos from the event.
