REES Workplace of the Month

The Manitoba League for Persons with Disabilities (MLPD) , is the REES Workplace of the month.

Manitoba League for Persons with Disabilities MLPDThe Manitoba League for Persons with Disabilities (MLPD) is a united voice of people with disabilities and their supporters that promote equal rights and full participation in society, while also facilitating positive change through advocacy and public education in Manitoba. The natural partnership between MLPD and REES resulted in finding a great employee to meet MLPD’s office administrative needs. Through the Co-Op Program and Work Placement phase, an Administration Assistant was well matched to suit the pace and culture of MLPD that has resulted in MLPD’s ability to maintain and develop new programs, ability to move the organization to a new site location quite seamlessly and help MLPD to ready themselves as the Accessibility for Manitobans Act 2016 comes into effect. Employee accommodation needs were so easily met and this mindset lent to focusing more on the employee’s strengths and natural gifts, and MLPD wasted no time to suit tasks and projects that the employee successfully completed and continues to take on. Despite financial picture of non-profit operations reality, MLPD has found a REES participant to be a fantastic employee that can not only fit the MLPD “family”, but more importantly- that the organization foresees their new employee has the capacity to grow with MLPD’s future endeavours.
