Seattle, Wash. – With October being National Disability Employment Awareness Month, MOD Super Fast Pizza Holdings LLC has the Delivering Jobs pledge, an inclusion campaign developed by Autism Speaks, Best Buddies and Special Olympics in partnership with the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
MOD Pizza and a coalition of other companies have committed to creating one million new employment and leadership opportunities for people with autism, and intellectual and developmental differences by 2025.
Signing the pledge reaffirms a company’s commitment to provide opportunities, development and training resources. MOD Pizza has more than 300 Squad members with people with intellectual and developmental differences, opportunity youth and those who have been previously incarcerated. Last year, a few of them helped to create a video promoting inclusivity, Our World.
Delivering Jobs challenges all businesses to identify ways they can incorporate this untapped workforce into their diversity and inclusion plans; ensure that they have access to a minimum of one per cent of employment and leadership opportunities; and empower human resources personnel to invest in the long-term success of all employees.
With nearly 500 locations system-wide, he company has been recognized by Fortune magazine as “Best Workplace for Diversity” and one of the 20 best workplaces in retail, for women and for millennials.
