Ji Hyuk Lee
“In his full-time position at H Mart, today Ji Hyuk Lee is the picture of confidence. He has a contagious attitude and is a valued team member who is adored by fellow employees and customers.“ - Katherine Turner, LaunchAbility Employment Consultant.
LaunchAbility is known for its expertise in matching the right people to the right job. Through their advocacy for Ji Hyuk Lee, his family approached the agency believing that Ji had the ability to work in a full-time position outside of their family business.
Not only does Ji struggle with cognitive disabilities, he also has a language barrier. LaunchAbility placed Ji in a full-time position in a Korean grocery store. With some additional job skills training through LaunchAbility and his predisposition to being a hard worker, he quickly became a valued member of H Mart’s team. Today, Ji is a courtesy clerk who bags groceries, assists customers, re-stocks returned and misplaced merchandise, and retrieves carts from the parking lot.
“Ji is endearing, he is a very hard-working, determined person and a very conscientious employee. We know we found the right position for him and he brings a smile to your face by watching the joy he gets from doing a good job, “ said Katherine. His positive attitude is contagious and his employer definitely has an employee who is bringing a tremendous value to the team.
When Ji is ready to move to the next level of responsibility, LaunchAbility will be there again for both Ji and his employer to help them both reach their goals.
