BLN Benefits

JOIN offers a single point of access for potential employers and works to match skilled candidates with specific employment positions being offered. JOIN's recruitment network has access to a large pool of job ready candidates with a range of abilities; therefore, employers have access to a much wider candidacy group from a single source. By increasing the scale of the service and decreasing the duplication, JOIN is an effective means of providing employment placement services for those with disabilities and employers who wish to hire.

JOIN Membership envisages additional value-added services to employers through a membership-based entity, the JOIN Business Leadership Network. These additional services are designed, among other things, to enhance employers' knowledge of disabilities, to strengthen employers' capacity to accommodate people with disabilities, to celebrate employers' participation in JOIN and to promote their successes.
