National Telecommuting Institute (NTI) announced in July that it had nearly 200 openings in full- and part-time work-from-home positions available exclusively to the 61 million Americans with disabilities, and that it is continuing to add postions.
Working directly with the Social Security Administration, the nonprofit organization recruits people with disabilities, then trains, supports, and matches them with work-from-home jobs in companies across the United States. Positions 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.
Since the start of the pandemic, dozens of businesses have turned to NTI because of its history recruiting, training, and placing work-from-home employees.
“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,” said Alan Hubbard, COO of NTI. “Now people are talking about remote work as the norm going forward.”
