Dolphin Digital Technologies
This award-winning consulting firm in Kitchener, Ontario, designs, implements and supports customized business logic solutions. By developing a virtual office environment and providing services through virtual means, Dolphin has made it possible to eliminate the barriers frequently encountered by people with disabilities. “We were in the cloud before the cloud existed,” notes the company president.
Accordingly, Dolphin employs a number of qualified, competitively compensated people who just happen to have disabilities. When making hiring decisions, “their abilities are the only thing we look at. It’s not about being nice; it’s about good business.” Not just good business – better business results: Dolphin reports no staff turnover, a negligible number of sick days, and two and a half times the return on investment for hiring a person with a disability. “Our employees made this company, and the success of this company is their success.”
