“I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and all of the HirePotential staff for the training sessions conducted for [our company]. I particularly appreciate your ability to customize the curriculum to directly address our training goals and provide the necessary education our employees required.

“I want to formally thank you for taking the time to making each one of us here feel more comfortable and educated on the special needs some employees may have and how to best deal with them. Our branch has had an opportunity to interview and hire a highly qualified programmer who was blind. With the knowledge you left us, we were successfully able to interview the individual, as well as make him feel comfortable…The program opens many doors for us as a company.” – Andrew, Client

Recruiting and Staffing

“I had resigned myself to the fact that it would a miracle if I were able to find a decent job. Well, my miracle happened when I was hired. A program where the disabled are treated as potential assets and actually hired is priceless. And, unfortunately few and far between. There is no feeling on earth like the redeeming feeling of validity that a good job gives to a disabled person. [HirePotential made that possible.]” – Thomas, Job Seeker

“The candidates that have been selected are an asset to our team and have made a positive impact since day one. I think that this opportunity will shed a light on the capabilities of people with disabilities. I would like to single out a person, [although] his initial training took longer because he was blind and had to learn the program management tool which is very complex, once he was trained he…exceeded all expectations. He has surpassed the number of calls per month for more experienced agents at the desk without sacrificing the quality of the call ticket and his numbers are constantly improving. His sense of humor helps break the ice for people who are uncomfortable of being around a blind person. He sets the pace for any other person with disabilities on this desk.” – Curt, Client Manager for Large International Fortune 500 Company

“The program is a complete success and exceeded my expectations by a wide margin, more than I had even hoped for. The people you have sent me to staff my Customer Service Center desk are of the highest caliber and the level of enthusiasm and dedication is something to be showcased and admired. Your Efforts really changed the world as I and many of my co-workers knew it forever. My sincerest thanks.“ – Ed, Client Manager for Large International Fortune 500 Company

“I would like to state that this program is very successful within our Customer Care environment. The candidates that have been selected are an asset to our team and have made a positive impact since day one. These people are highly motivated and very enthusiastic in all aspects of the work that is done here. I think this opportunity will shed light on the capabilities of people with disabilities to show that they can overcome obstacles and erase any prejudices or misconceptions that may have existed.” – Carl, Client Manager for Large International Fortune 500 Company

“I see value in this program in three areas: 1) Increased employee base for fulfilling projects; 2) Enhanced client relationships with companies who see a “cultural fit” with our commitment to this program and their companies’ goals; and 3) Demonstration and commitment to being an employer of choice.” – Diana, Client

OFCCP Consulting

I am pleased to recommend Ms. Sheridan Walker, CEO and Founder of Hire Potential.  Our organizations have worked with Ms. Walker on several occasions to assist us with preparing for Office of Federal Compliance and Contracts (OFCCP).  With Ms. Walkers guidance and development of a short and long term plan for Section 503 Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Section 508 she was instrumental in helping our organization pass our first ever OFCCP audit in 2010. We have consistently found Ms. Walker and her company to be an important resource for continued compliance and awareness as it relates to business solutions for accessibility, accommodations and employing people with disabilities.  As the laws change Ms. Walker continues to provide the appropriate information to help us provide departments with the information that is needed to update our policies and train our employees.  With the continued approval of new laws Hire Potential is an organization that you will want in your corner to assist with maintaining your regulatory requirements. Shirley Martinez, EEO Specialist Senior, Colorado Springs Utilities

 

Website Accessibility and Testing

We are very pleased with the work you, and the rest of your team did to provide us with the audit we requested. The audit clearly shows our compliance gaps and what we need to do to close those gaps. The meeting was also helpful to validate the work we have done thus far to make our website more compliant, how we should prioritize our additional compliance efforts, as well as to provide us a forum to have our questions answered. Jeff, Project Manager, Community College

Thank you for a very smooth testing process from your team. Padma, Project Manager, Government contractor, Forture 500 Company
