We wanted to share this encouraging piece from CBS News on the growing acceptance of autism in the workplace. Diversity at work can take many forms. Fellow employees may be multilingual and need guidance to understand instructions and share their amazing skills at landscape design and maintenance. Others may have an intellectual disability that actually works to their benefit, as they are hardworking and can keenly focus on a specific task. These are just two examples to share, and we at Gerbert & Sons welcome the challenge, as we feel it enriches the fabric of our company. Each person has their own unique abilities to offer the collective whole, and thus the company runs even better with everyone’s contributions.
By the way of an update: The holiday cards were such a hit and a heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to Autism Speaks. Really meant a lot to us.
Hope for spring!
Jeff, Chris, John, and our amazing team
