Quality Inn & Suites gets statewide honor

Quality Inn & Suites at Olympic National Park in Sequim is one of nine employers who was honored last week by Washington’s Governor’s Committee on Disability Issues & Employment (GCDE) and Disability: In Washington, at the 27th Annual Governor’s Employer Awards ceremony held at the Microsoft Conference Center in Redmond.

The GCDE advises the governor, Legislature, state agencies and other policy makers on issues important to people with disabilities.

Quality Inn & Suites, at 134 River Road, was selected as a 2019 Medium Private Employer of the Year. The business is known for “excellent customer service, diversity in the workplace and an exceptional work environment,” the Washington Employment Security Department said in a press release.

“The hospitality industry is typically seasonal work. Management has exceeded expectations and has been able to offer year-round work. They currently employ more than eight individuals with disabilities and six of them are receiving long-term support services,” the department said.

Washington state businesses, agencies, organizations and individuals submitted the nominations. A panel of GCDE members, business representatives and previous award recipients selected this year’s honorees.
