“As a member of GBEC, we find the support that we receive from the collaborative to be tremendously helpful in our efforts to find competitive employment for individuals with disabilities and other barriers. The opportunity to collaborate with other agencies with similar missions allows us to share leads, resources, and best practices. GBEC has created partnerships with several large employers in Greater Boston, allowing us to gain a greater understanding of what these employers are looking for in candidates. GBEC has also advocated on behalf of some of the people we serve to particular employers, which has resulted in several hires. Finally, we value the opportunity to assist other agencies in the collaborative, which allows us to extend our reach beyond the individuals that we serve.”
