Jim Gordon, general manager of the Sequim Safeway, supports the corporate policy Safeway has regarding hiring individuals with disabilities and has several employees with disabilities in his local store, including people with developmental disabilities.

Gordon said that when he works with the local employment providers — Morningside, Pierce Jones & Associates and Concerned Citizens — to make a good job match, he gets employees who are punctual and reliable.

Gordon said they are part of the Safeway team and are “just like everyone else.”

Safeway in Sequim was presented the Clallam County Health & Human Services Business Leadership Advisory Committee Employer of the Month Award on Sept. 29 by Lani McCarry with John L. Scott-Sequim, and member of the Business Leadership Advisory Committee.

This award recognizes employers who demonstrate diversity and inclusion in their hiring practices by having one or more employees with developmental disabilities in their employ.

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, visit www.clallam.net/HHS/HumanServices/blac.html.

Mary Cliffton, Developmental Disability case manager for Clallam County Health and Human Services, is open to connect employers to the various community employment providers and agencies should they be interested in hiring workers with disabilities. Reach her at 417-2407.
