One of our wonderful job sites, Widen, was recently on the WorldBlu list of Freedom-Centered Workplaces. WorldBlu makes the list of businesses “…through a rigorous Freedom at Work™ Scorecard process completed by employees. The assessment evaluates the overall design of an organization along a fear-based to freedom-centered continuum in three core areas: leadership, individual performance and systems, and processes.”
This is what WorldBlu wrote about Widen.
“Widen is a marketing technology company that assists organizations in managing their digital assets.
Widen has operationalized Fairness + Dignity by establishing deeper community relationships that provide opportunities for people with developmental challenges. A local organization has partnered with the company to provide opportunities for people with developmental disabilities, allowing them to integrate into the workforce. With that in mind, company leaders have created jobs such as “popcorn delivery” and “straightening up after lunch.” They employ five people with developmental challenges doing various tasks throughout the building, assisted by their job coaches. While the intent of this was to assist with their own social and occupational wellness, it has actually done more for the social and emotional wellness of all employees.”
Congratulations and thank you to Widen for being wonderful partners.
