Socially beneficial and notably efficient: Fruits of Employment program
Nuveen’s Fruits of Employment (FoE) initiative gives individuals with disabilities access to competitive employment across four custom-farmed properties in California, Oregon and Washington. The initiative trains and employs workers with disabilities in the same job functions as other employees – an important effort considering that in the U.S. only 41% of people with disabilities are employed, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
As of March 2019, the program had 34 active workers, many of whom have worked on the farms since the start of the initiative in 2009. Watch the video to explore the Fruits of Employment program.
