ISSA collaborates with National Down Syndrome Society to foster employment opportunities
ISSA has announced a collaboration with the National Down Syndrome Society. ISSA and NDSS will work together to foster employment opportunities within the cleaning industry for individuals with Down syndrome.
"We are pleased to work with NDSS to help create career opportunities for those with disabilities that are rewarding and impactful," says Brant Insero, ISSA senior director of education. "Creating employment opportunities will also help to mitigate labour shortages within the cleaning industry."
As part of the collaboration, ISSA's Cleaning Management Institute will provide education, training and certification to individuals with Down syndrome or similar disabilities. ISSA will also use resources and information provided by NDSS to identify and create job opportunities across the commercial cleaning industry.
Kandi Pickard (pictured), NDSS president and CEO says: "October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month, and we are pleased to enter into this collaboration during this time. We're looking forward to working closely with ISSA and CMI to assist those with disabilities on their journey towards finding fulfilling careers and realising their life aspirations."
