Look at all the reasons our workforce solutions will benefit your business.....

  • A much needed extra pair of hands.  Human capital is essential to achieving business results.  Merrick, Inc., can provide a variety of workforce solutions comprised of people with developmental disabilities that can meet or exceed a company's service or production standards with the support necessary to make the partnership work.  Companies may choose to employ an individual at its place of business, contract with Merrick to provide a work crew at its location, or completely outsource production to our facilities.  Merrick offers cost effective workforce solutions to important or unmet business needs.
  • Diversity does not go unnoticed.  In today's economy, success hinges on a diverse workforce that should include workers who happen to have disabilities.  People with disabilities often have had to face and overcome challenges beyond the norm.  They are often inspiring to coworkers and truly appreciate and are enthusiastic about the opportunity to work.  Companies gain the advantage of different ideas and points of view from a segment of the population that otherwise may be underrepresented.  Such diversity in the workplace promotes an environment that truly respects and values differences and does not go unnoticed by employees and customers alike.
  • Good advertising and public relations.  Hiring workers with disabilities is good public relations.  Studies show that the public looks favorably upon businesses that hire persons with disabilities and are more likely to buy from such businesses.  Employers can highlight success in hiring persons with a disability in local, state, or national media and by sponsoring well-advertised activities and events promoting such efforts.  Merrick can facilitate such publicity as well.
  • Social responsibility attracts new customers.  Employing workers with disabilities may lead to new customers, a new market for a company's goods or services, or otherwise enhance customer or vendor relations.  Persons with disabilities, their families, and extended networks are consumers with considerable disposable income.  Also, more and more businesses seek suppliers and vendors that demonstrate diversity and socially conscious business practices.  One of Merrick's facility-based contracts is with a card manufacturer that sought production assistance when the company landed a deal as the exclusive supplier for a large national grocery retailer.  The retailer was impressed with the production capabilities but also thrilled with the social, economic, and community benefits of knowing that its vendor was employing a workforce of people with intellectual disabilities.
