Goodwill Industries of Kansas works to provide quality programs and services that provide job training and opportunities to people with developmental and intellectual disabilities and other employment barriers. As each year passes, Goodwill’s leadership team and board of directors examine how the agency can expand its mission, strengthen business practices, grow brand awareness and cultivate its workforce.
In order to increase the number of people we serve, we must educate communities of all the territories we serve – both urban and rural – of our mission and gain their active support. By engaging with and informing community partners, our staff and our followers, we will increase our brand awareness in order to assist a greater number of people in gaining education and job skills training.
Goodwill will continue to help individuals earn a sustainable income, reach their highest potential and improve their quality of life through the power of work. We will assess the needs of communities across our territory to expand mission services with a focus on assisting rural areas, ensuring a seamless transition for NexStep Alliance students/graduates and addressing gaps with community partnerships to improve employment services.
By strengthening our financial base through our retail stores, Goodwill will be able to serve even more individuals and allow us to fulfill our mission of helping people with employment barriers lead productive lives. Our goal is to ensure 90% of developmentally disabled individuals in our programs also have job opportunities through Goodwill.
We aim to be an employer of choice by investing in our greatest assets – our employees – helping them achieve their highest professional potential. By addressing areas such as compensation, benefits, professional development and employee recognition & satisfaction, we will ensure long-term sustainability for the organization.
