The right thing
Johnson Controls has been named employer of the month by the Community Employment Services of Wood Lane, a job placement service for qualified workers with developmental disabilities.
According to a spokesperson for Wood Lane, Johnson Controls had been looking for a solution to recycle its cardboard at its Northwood plant. The company hired two workers through the Community Employment Services to collect and bale cardboard five days a week on two shifts. Due to increase production through its ties with the Chrysler Jeep plant, the work has expanded to six days a week. Additional production lines have also been added and another two people per shift were hired.
The company’s relationship with Wood Lane goes beyond providing employment opportunities. Last year, JCI and Wood Lane were recipients of a $1000 Blue Sky Award to purchase a shelter for another Wood Lane business in Wood County and employees at JCI donated more than $500 to be distributed to individuals served by Wood Lane.
