The Heart of Accent
Why choose Accent?
Accent is not your average company; we put people first. We do everything we can to make our customers’ lives easier, empower our employees, have fun at work and support our community.
We’ve been in the printing business for three generations, since our grandfathers returned home from World War II. They instilled in us the value of taking care of our employees and giving back to our community. We proudly support local and national philanthropic organizations, but the cause that is nearest to our hearts is supporting our local Special School District (SSD).
When our oldest son, Gary, was born with a brain abnormality, we became aware of the world of special needs. In raising our son, we learned that fewer than 20% of U.S. adults with special needs are employed. We wanted to improve this statistic and make a difference for our community.
We host three programs that give young adults with special needs an opportunity to learn valuable work and social skills that help them succeed with future employment as well as in life. Teammates spend time learning new skills, making friends, learning how to be part of a team and conquering challenges every day. Accent is proud to participate in these programs:
- Vocational Skills Program (VSP)
- Summer Work Experience Program (SWEP)
- Community Based Vocational Instruction (CBVI)
These programs not only positively impact the lives of hundreds of families in our community, but also they inspire our employees and warm the hearts of our clients. Our team is truly energized by these programs and they have changed our perspective on what it means to create an environment that is inclusive of all our employees. Accent is a better, stronger team because we work toward goals together. We’d love to put our team to work for yours, and let you see the power of Accent.
