National Telecommuting Institute (NTI) announces 200 openings in full- and part-time work-from-home positions available exclusively to Americans with disabilities.
Working directly with the Social Security Administration, NTI recruits disabled persons, then trains, supports and matches them with work-from-home jobs in companies across the United States. Positions currently available include work such as monitoring patients taking specialized medicines; staffing IT help desks; contact tracing for COVID-19; supporting long-term care teams; and customer service call center positions.
New NTI employer partners include companies such as ISPN, Tetra Tech and DisplayToGo, according to a media release.
“The pandemic forced a lot of businesses to change the way they operate. Before COVID-19 access to telecommuting wasn’t nearly as commonplace – limiting opportunities for disabled workers or those with chronic illnesses that just can’t work outside the home. Now people are talking about remote work as the norm going forward. We’ve been in the work-from-home space for 25 years. We know how to do it, and companies are reaching out to us because of our strong track record.
“The fact is, our employees are well-trained, fully invested, and have less turnover than most home-based employees. We work with people who want to work. We have the jobs, and we need more candidates.”
— Alan Hubbard, Chief Operating Officer, NTI
Since 2005, NTI has placed nearly 5,000 individuals with disabilities in remote work positions at some of the nation’s leading employers, including Celgene, Meijer, and the Internal Revenue Service. NTI currently has 533 disabled agents working in 45 states. The nonprofit recently expanded its mission to serve the 1 in 4 Americans with invisible disabilities and chronic health conditions like asthma, COPD, cancer, and others, regardless of their SSDI benefits status.
This growth comes on the heels of the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and a time to “fulfill the promise of the ADA,” as Hubbard has publicly stated, the release continues.
