Corporate customers like Glanbia provide the opportunity for Business Solutions employees to develop skills, grow independence and build friendships.
Global nutrition company Glanbia has been working with Mambourin’s Business Solutions team since 2016. The company connected with Mambourin through BuyAbility – a National Disability Services initiative committed to increasing employment opportunities for people with disability.
For Glanbia, building a relationship with Mambourin realised their vision of providing opportunity through corporate social responsibility initiatives and partnerships.
‘We are very proud and pleased to see the immense joy and sense of satisfaction on the faces of the Mambourin employees who passionately undertake the various packaging tasks we engage them on. I always enjoy walking the floor with the Mambourin team when we detail in a new task.
The excitement levels are through the roof, confirming our partnership does make a measurable, positive impact on the lives of the Mambourin community,‘ Simon Rowe, Glanbia Supply Chain Lead, said of the relationship.
For Mambourin’s Business Solutions employees, corporate customers such as Glanbia mean the opportunity to gain skills and grow their independence.
Employee Dee-Jay says, ‘I’ve been with Mambourin for seven years now, I have a learning disability but that doesn’t stop me from going all the way – graduating Year 12 or finding a job – I don’t let it define me at all. Now one of the jobs I like doing is the [Glanbia] sachet jars because we get to do labeling on them, it’s nice and easy to do. I enjoy doing them with my friends here at work.’
Dee-Jay has also had the opportunity to work on the Business Solutions administration team and is looking forward to developing more skills in this area.
‘What I love about my job is that I get to work with my friends and with other people with different disabilities to mine, as well as all the different jobs we get to do here at Mambourin.’
