Apprenticeship Program for Formerly Disabled

Our Apprenticeship Program for Formerly Disabled is designed to help people who have been on short-term or long-term disability return to the workforce. This includes people who have successfully battled cancer or whose health may have improved due to new treatments for diseases such as HIV/AIDS.

Employers gain in three ways. First, by building their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), perhaps even with the patient community they seek to serve. Second, by getting an employee bundled with an individualized training program. Thirdly, our pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device clients can internalize the patient’s perspective by employing an apprentice who has the affliction for which the company is developing solutions.

Rarely do people explain such gaps in their employment history and are therefore often overlooked despite their potential. As leaders in life-sciences talent management, MEIRxRS is uniquely positioned to evaluate the abilities and value that individuals who are on disability bring to the workplace. MEIRxRS will keep the apprentice on track toward earning their certification. As the employer of record we ensure that each apprentice meets the educational and experiential requirements for certification. In instances where the apprentice is behind schedule, we work with the employer to get the apprentice back on track. We provide the apprentice a full range of benefits and we also provide insurance for the employer against errors of omission.

At the end of the one to two year apprenticeship, he or she can be converted to a full-time employee by the host company, can convert to a staffing arrangement or MEIRxRS will work to find a permanent position with another employer.
