A proud part of the Petawawa Community, Hyska’s Your Independent Grocer is a local family-operated grocery store committed to product variety and freshness. Franchised in 2015, Hyska’s is an excellent inclusive employer and partner to Bee Successful.
“My experience with the Bee Successful program has been very positive so far,” says owner Valerie Hyska. “The support I received during the hiring process was professional and informative. My Employment Solutions Consultant was able to provide recommendations for the accommodations required and gave me detailed information about the process, the candidate, and how to best support a candidate to become a successful long-term employee.”
Sam started working in 2018 and has been a “welcome addition to our team,” explains Valerie. Sam helps to stock shelves, collect baskets, and provides valued customer service by bagging groceries.
“Watching a seasoned staff member coach and encourage Sam has been one of my proudest moments as an employer. Sam is the ultimate reminder of being ‘happy to be here’ because he is just that. His attitude is contagious to both employees and customers. I’m looking forward to watching Sam grow in his role within my organization.”
