Who We Are: Three Talents Advisors
We are passioniate advocates for people with disabilities. We have seen the positive impact work has had in our lives and aspire to make meaningful opportunities available to people often forgotten and excluded from the workforce.
We see great potential for people with disabilities to contribute to the business, brand, and workforce of many organizations. We help unlock this potential and create meaningful life-changing opportunties for all.
How we Started:
We launched a hiring program for people with disabilties at a global market leading IT company. We found the people we hired worked harder, had lower error rates, had lower turnover, and higher productivity than our typical worker. So we hired more and more. To increase the talent pool we started training candidates for specific entry level IT roles which led to the development of the academy program.
Why Three Talents: There are two reasons we chose this name.
First, we believe we all have a "third talent" that ultimately impacts our success in many aspects of our lives, but is often overlooked. We see three talents in all people - 1) what they know; 2) what they experience; and 3) who they are. Most often only the first two talents are evaluated for employment. However, we believe the third talent is the most important determiner of our success in life. It includes charater traits, attitude, and commitment. Because people with disabilities excel at the third talent they are often exceptional employees.
The second reason is a "parable of the talents" that inspires us (Matthew 25:14).
What We Do: Create Employment Opportunities
We consult with business, non-profits, universities, religious, and governmentt organizations to unlock the potential people with disabilities provide to their organizational mission, results, brand, and workforce.
We also build training academies that create an untapped talent supply chain for organizations, and develops employable skills that lead to meaningful careers for the candidates.
Our goal is simple - employment. Our only ambition is to create meaningful opportunity for people who deserve it, and organizations who seek transformative impact.
Why We Do It: To Unlock Potential and Transform Lives
We see great potential from all people and unlock it. We see the profound impact people with disabiltiies contribute to a culture, brand, business, and workforce. We also see the transformative impact it has on their lives.
While the US labor participation rate is at a historic high, 81% of people with disabilities in the US are unemployed and nearly 1/3 live in poverty. Employers struggle to find talent while 30M+ people with disabilities just want the opportunity to prove themselves.
We create opportunities which enrich their lives and the lives of all they touch.
