New Business Is Working for Its Employees, Facility, Training, and Purpose

February 19, 2016 / Source: HR.BLR.com

According to disabilityscoop.com, the 150-room Courtyard by Marriott, developed by Arc Innovation, the for profit arm of The Arc of Indiana, was designed not only for the comfort of its guests, but to offer jobs and training to people with disabilities. Marriott was chosen for the project because of its exceptional training program and willingness to participate in the concept.

Up to 20% of employees hired for this "teaching hotel" and its restaurant have developmental, mental, and physical disabilities, and these employees will assume jobs that include management positions. Also, shops are planned in the lobby whose owners have disabilities.
