Sequim Gazette staff
On May 26, Sequim Goodwill’s general manager Robert Glidewell and his staff were recognized by the Clallam County Health & Human Services Business Leadership Advisory Committee for Goodwill’s commitment to hiring employees with special needs; particularly employees with developmental disabilities. This Employer of the Month award is presented to area employers who have one or more individuals with developmental disabilities in their employ.
Previous 2015 recipients of this award are Olympic Medical Center, Holiday Inn Express, Jack in the Box and Smuggler’s Landing. Each recipient receives a certificate to keep and a plaque to hang in their place of business for the month. At the end of the year, the plaque will hang in the county building to honor these employers for their commitment to diversity and inclusion in the work place.
The Business Leadership Advisory Committee is a business to business network promoting the inclusion of people with disabilities in the community and workforce. For more information about the Business Leadership Advisory Committee, visit www.clallam.net/HHS/HumanServices/blac.html.
