Great Work is a leader in disability inclusion in the workforce. We help individuals with disabilities explore their employment interests, learn skills needed to succeed on the job, and find and keep great jobs that they truly enjoy.
Great Work opened in January 2020. Our founder, Chelsie Gibbs, started Great Work after working almost 20 years in disability services in Minnesota. After working in residential and independent living services for many years, Chelsie began working in employment services in 2012 and saw first-hand the amazing effects that a good job, in a place where someone is valued and appreciated, can have on a person and a business.
