Packaging the Right Skills

Comfort connected with the March of Dimes to explore her interest in securing a stocking or merchandising position.

Through a MentorAbility match with Basic Packaging, she participated in a half-day mentorship. This MentorAbility Experience went so well that it led to the employer expressing an interest in hiring Comfort and training her in a position of interest. Comfort’s positive attitude and strong work ethic contributed to a ‘win-win’ for herself and the employer. She has recently completed six months of employment as a packaging clerk and is looking toward the future!

While not all MentorAbility Experiences result in a direct offer of employment, this unique experience is designed to link employers with potential future employees by tapping into a hidden pool of talent. Basic Packaging has found the MentorAbility Experience to be a unique recruitment tool that has successfully led to the hiring of three protégés following their mentorship experiences.

Here’s to Basic Packaging for embracing inclusive hiring practices and MentorAbility Experience as an innovative recruitment tool!
