On Monday, March 13th, Koinonia was featured on WCPN 90.3 “The Sound of Ideas” show hosted by Mike McIntyre. The focus of the segment was to raise awareness about the many benefits of hiring people who have developmental disabilities including a high retention rate, greater employee engagement, and greater customer engagement with both the employee and the business. Representing Koinonia was Steve Fluharty, Workforce Developer for Koinonia, and Tim Hanserd, Manager of Maggiano’s Little Italy and employment partner of Koinonia. The show also featured Jared Daly from the Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities, Coordinator of Employer engagement.
