The LIFT Hire program is a promise made by Avarelle to hire individuals with disabilities in order to help them become a part of the workforce. LIFT stands for “Life Is Full of Trials” to represent the many trials that people with disabilities face while trying to find a stable job in a workplace that caters to everyone's needs.
Did you know that only 12.9% out of the 19.3% of people with disabilities were actually employed in the labor force? (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2014.)
For those with learning and social disabilities, it doesn't get any better. Autism affects 1% of the world...but in 2012, almost 35% of young adults that had been diagnosed with autism have not yet had a job or had even received postgraduate education after leaving high school.
These “trials” don't just stand for the trials of the employees but for the trials we as employers will go through to create a balanced environment that helps us succeed not only as a company but as a team of people. Together, with individuals with a different lens of the world, we can work collectively to construct new products and deliver the best service we can.
We are always looking to hire more individuals who can bring to us new perspectives and ideas. Everyone deserves a seat at the table! Our office is located in Northvale, NJ. If you are seeking disability employment of any kind and are from the area, let us know more about yourself and someone from our team will reach out to you.
