Shredding on the Go announces that it has received Disability-Owned Business Enterprise Certification® through the US Business Leadership Network®.
It allows Shredding on the Go to compete for jobs from businesses seeking diversity in their contracting work force. The USBLN® certification provides independent third-party verification that Shredding on the Go is owned by a person with a disability.
The USBLN® is working toward a world in which the US business community recognizes the contributions of people with disabilities and as a result includes them in workplaces, supply chains and marketplaces. As a disability-owned business, Shredding on the Go shares in this vision and seeks to model ways in which a person with a disability makes a contribution to the local business community.
James Parker and his family created Shredding on the Go in 2010. Parker, now 23 years old, has a genetic disorder, which has limited his ability to move and speak for his entire life. He uses a wheelchair and communicates through hand gestures, facial expression and eye-gaze. He also knows how to shred documents and has been shredding for Houston businesses for the last five years.
Shredding on the Go hires other workers besides James to help with the shredding. Each of these workers also has a disability. Nonetheless they are able to shred and to earn a paycheck, many of them for the first time in their lives.
If your company is seeking to diversify its list of suppliers, and is need of document destruction services, please contact Shredding on the Go by calling business manager Renee Parker at (713)824-3762 or sending an e-mail to [email protected]
