Harley was placed as a barista in our sister company Rehab Management in December 2018. This was pilot opportunity for BusyBeans to identify any gaps in the program and on-the-job training.
What we found was so much more than a great barista. Harely has an intellectual disability, Austism Spectrum Disorder and minimal work experience. After completing his barista training Harley now works 2 days per week from 9am-1pm:
- Making delicious coffee for staff and workplace visitors
- Ensuring the kitchen environment is clean
- Interacting with staff to build his social skills
- Using our coffee ordering app to notify staff of coffee orders and log his daily coffee tally
Harley is now an invaluable staff member at Rehab Management, confidently catches public transport to the office for his shift and works autonomously.
