Auld & White is Building a Brighter Future for People of All Abilities
Nathan Marty, CEO of Auld & White Constructors, made the pledge to employ an individual with intellectual differences as a part of the 20 in 20 campaign. This decision came full circle when Auld & White hired a young man from North Florida School of Special Education (NFSSE). While building the campus expansion, Auld & White team members met many of the NFSSE students and were inspired by their unique abilities. Today, Ben is making an impact and continues to impress his coworkers at Auld & White by his abilities and professionalism. Nathan's message to businesses considering such employment: "Cast your concerns aside. It has been one of the best decisions we have made."
Earlier this year, Connectable and JAX Chamber launched the 20 in 20 campaign to encourage 20 Chamber members to hire people of all abilities. During National Disability Employment Awareness Month in October, JAX Chamber highlighted the 20 in 20 campaign and member business who are involved.
