Ampla Partners is a social enterprise with the purpose of assisting adults with physical disabilities in securing employment with companies that value diversity and inclusion. We believe that everyone, regardless of their physical ability, has a right to work.
The premise of Ampla, which means “opportunity” in latin, is that ability and motivation alone cannot get a person a job. These individuals also need the opportunity to prove their ability and motivation. We have found that most companies are struggling to identify a strategy to recruit, identify, and retain employees with disabilities.
This is where Ampla Partners comes in.
We are building a network of corporate, government, and non-profit partners to provide employment opportunities for adults with physical disabilities. Our typical job seeker has inherent strengths in problem solving, creativity, loyalty, and resilience. These individuals may or may not require some type of accommodation, including facility access, assistive technology, or redesigned job description to minimize physical demands. However, research has show that these accommodations are fairly easy and cost-effective to implement.
We help employers unlock a new source of talented, motivated, and loyal employees. We help employers with work place accommodations, provide consulting and disability awareness training to create inclusive work environments, and match talented job seekers to the appropriate employment opportunities.
We were spawned by Angel City Sports, an organization which provides sports programming for kids and adults with physical disabilities. We realized that our athletes face the same challenges and lack of opportunities in finding employment as they face in sport. Thus, we felt uniquely situated and qualified to attack the problem of employment.
Our founder, Clayton Frech, is an executive with over 20 years of experience in progressive leadership positions and has hired and managed thousands of employees across a wide variety of industries and government. He has a vision to ensure that the workplace is fully inclusive for people with disabilities by the time his now 12 year-old son graduates from college. Thus, Ampla Partners has a plan to ensure that by 2027, we have a robust marketplace for people with disabilities looking for employment, across industries, sectors, and functions.
