Blue-J Partners with NC Everybody Works Campaign

Blue-J is partnering with an organization which teaches self-advocacy skills to the disabled.

Concord, NC, October 27, 2017 —- Blue-J​ ​Eco-Friendly​ ​Small​ ​Office​ ​cleaning​ ​is​ ​proud​ ​to​ ​announce​ ​it’s​ ​participation​ ​in​ ​the “Everybody​ ​Works​ ​NC” ​campaign.​ ​This​ ​campaign​ ​was​ ​organized​ ​by​ ​the​ ​North​ ​Carolina council​ ​on​ ​developmental​ ​disabilities​ ​with​ ​the​ ​purpose​ ​of​ ​connecting​ ​businesses​ ​to disabled​ ​individuals​ ​seeking​ ​work.​ ​This​ ​campaign​ ​addresses​ ​the​ ​facts​ ​that​ ​forty​ ​percent of​ ​NC​ ​businesses​ ​are​ ​currently​ ​seeking​ ​talent​ ​to​ ​meet​ ​their​ ​workforce​ ​needs​ ​and​ ​that there​ ​are​ ​over​ ​four​ ​thousand​ ​qualified​ ​candidates​ ​who​ ​suffer​ ​from​ ​disabilities​ ​who​ ​are seeking​ ​work.

A​ ​major​ ​goal​ ​of​ ​Blue-J​ ​is​ ​to​ ​help​ ​people​ ​with​ ​disabilities​ ​achieve​ ​their​ ​potential.​ ​Blue-J achieves​ ​this​ ​by​ ​predominantly​ ​hiring​ ​individuals​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Autistic​ ​spectrum.​ ​ As​ ​to​ ​the potential​ ​of​ ​these​ ​employees,​ ​the​ ​owner​ ​of​ ​the​ ​company​ ​states​ ​“We​ ​tap​ ​into​ ​that potential,​ ​but​ ​they​ ​do​ ​it​ ​themselves​ ​and​ ​we​ ​bring​ ​it​ ​out.” ​Blue-J’s​ ​participation​ ​in​ ​the everybody​ ​works​ ​campaign​ ​is​ ​related​ ​to​ ​this​ ​goal​ ​because​ ​in​ ​participating​ ​in​ ​the campaign,​ ​Blue-J​ ​is​ ​assisting​ ​other​ ​businesses​ ​in​ ​adopting​ ​this​ ​goal.

Another​ ​goal​ ​of​ ​Blue-J​ ​which​ ​is​ ​consistent​ ​with​ ​the​ ​everybody​ ​works​ ​campaign​ ​is​ ​the company’s​ ​goal​ ​of​ ​educating​ ​the​ ​public​ ​about​ ​Autism​ ​spectrum​ ​disorders​ ​as​ ​a​ ​central goal​ ​of​ ​the​ ​everybody​ ​works​ ​campaign​ ​is​ ​to​ ​educate​ ​self-advocates.​ ​Blue-J​ ​extensively teaches​ ​its​ ​employees​ ​how​ ​to​ ​advocate​ ​for​ ​themselves​ ​in​ ​addition​ ​to​ ​participating​ ​in conferences​ ​where​ ​representatives​ ​of​ ​the​ ​company​ ​educate​ ​the​ ​participants​ ​about​ ​the business​ ​model.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
