As you are all aware, the decision to close non-essential business has moved forward by Governor DeWine. Weaver is committed to adhering to the Stay at Home order for the safety of our staff.
For the next two weeks, we will be shutting down the operations of services classified as non-essential, which include Weaver ProPak, Weaver EarthCare and Weaver SecurShred. The only division of Weaver Industries that will remain open is the TruClean division, as they have been deemed essential through the ‘Critical trades’ category of cleaning and janitorial staff.
In the TruClean division, we will continue to provide services that are necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation and essential operation of our commercial and governmental customers. TruClean staff are critical at this time, and have been on the front lines of this emergency. We cannot thank each of them enough for their tireless effort in maintaining clean facilities and customer satisfaction.
We thank the community for their support during this time, and look forward to serving individuals with disabilities and our business customers again very soon.
While companies have made efforts to improve the workplace for those with disabilities, it is still not enough. Businesses must start evaluating their operations and looking for opportunities to include everyone. Qualified people come in many forms, and companies must create a supportive environment for all people.
Weaver has been spotlighting areas of business that have helped maximize impact and grow the mission. One of those areas is our employees, such as our Direct Support Professionals.
Many people wonder how disability accommodations will affect their businesses. Will these accommodations add cost? Will they reduce efficiency? The list goes on, and these are valid questions.
