Johnson Precision held an open house to promote awareness of the opportunities and contributions of disabled and disadvantaged workers. Johnson Precision is proud to support and employ non-traditional workers, and was privileged to host the day's events.
Among the 100 individuals that attended were members from regional schools, support organizations, and government offices, as well as families, friends and workers themselves. Conducted entirely by company employees, the open house demonstrated, from the employee perspective, how non-traditional workers have a place alongside traditional workers in a modern manufacturing facility. The day's events included confidence and team-building workshops that helped to further communicate the message.
"Our involvement with this program has been beneficial to these three disabled employees, and a great learning and life experience for our employees throughout the company," stated Jo Spence, Materials Manager. "We have embraced this change as we move toward a more diverse and versatile work force. If we can open up even one set of eyes to the possibilities that exist within our manufacturing world, then we’ll feel as if we have made a difference and contribution to this cause, which is very close to our hearts."
Johnson Precision's strong commitment to this program was demonstrated through this event. The day showcased the benefits of a diversified workplace, which include tax credits, alternative training, enhanced morale, and a dedicated and hardworking workforce. More than that, Johnson Precision delivered the over-arching message that organizations should not fear taking steps towards enhanced workforce diversity. The open house exhibited the company's understanding of the progressive benefits a diversified workforce has on both organizations and communities.
