A FRESH and Exciting New Partnership!
It is with great enthusiasm and pride that we are able to report that four of the individuals in the Vocational program have been hired as part time employees at Fresh City Farms!
“We are happy to support in any way we can. The work you are doing at Aptus is inspiring and we hope everything lines up for this to be a long-term partnership.” Ran Goel, CEO & Founder, Fresh City Farms
Fresh City Farms delivers delicious organic produce and groceries to people at their homes. They make it simple to eat healthy and seasonal diets. The groceries are delivered in thermal grocery bags, which are eventually returned with the empty containers. The people we support are being employed to unpack the bags, sanitise them, and sort the items into their appropriate locations for further use.
Lesley, Jeff, David and Sam did a fabulous job of proving their ability during their trial shift, and that very day Fresh City decided that all four of them were going to be hired!! They have demonstrated a positive attitude, responded well to the job coaches working with them, and are focused on maintaining their jobs while increasing productivity. They are all excited for this opportunity and so is Aptus.
During an orientation session this week, Angela Donnelly, CFO at Fresh City Farms, reviewed topics about having a good work ethic, valuing your job, how sick time and vacation time works, the laws of employment according to the Employment Act of Ontario and most importantly to feel great about coming to work.
