The extent of Charles’ skills became apparent when his job coaching team began to phase themselves out of his daily routine this year. “As the job coaches phased out, it was clear Charles could do most of the work on his own.” says General Manager, Marty Kramer.
His job coaches discovered not only could he do the job on his own, he could observe and pick up new skills from his co-workers and apply them directly to his day-to-day routine. “He was thriving,” says Catherine.
The high productivity and world-class quality at Puget Sound Laundry Services is a testament to the benefits of a diverse workforce. Charles has learned new skills, made friends, and increased his confidence – while Puget Sound Laundry Services has gained a dedicated and enthusiastic new employee.
We look forward to hearing about more of Charles’ successes as he continues to grow and learn new skills at work!
