October was National Disability Employment Awareness Month and Rehabilitative Services & Vocational Placement, Inc. (RSVP) took part by recognizing employers throughout the state who have partnered with RSVP to fulfill their mission of helping our consumers realize their employment potential, increase their independence, and enhance the quality of their lives.
In 2009, RSVP worked with many deserving community employers, but TEN employers demonstrated a true spirit of collaboration and partnership, and in the process, helped our consumers to thrive at work.
Each of the managers and supervisors of the businesses recognized have consistently hired and accommodated the needs of our consumers. They have offered unending support and have promptly communicated any issues with our staff. These individuals have also been open to allowing us to conduct Situational Assessments on their work sites in order to help individuals to learn about different jobs in the community and make good decisions about the type of work they want to pursue. Whenever a consumer is hired, the Employment Specialist is always made to feel welcome and part of the team.
