National Disability Employment Awareness Month
At NBCo., we believe our strengths lie within our differences. Did you know this October marks the 75th observance of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), a national campaign that raises awareness about disability employment issues and celebrates the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities?
It’s also a time to celebrate our four-year partnership with the Developmental Disabilities Institute (DDI), a non-profit, multi-site agency serving hundreds of children and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities. DDI provides this group educational, residential, habilitative, vocational, transportation and service coordination support across its Long Island community.
Last year, we introduced four of our colleagues in the program – Peter, Kenny, Alex and Steve, all who are part of our manufacturing team. Also in 2019, DDI selected NBCo. as “Employer of the Year.” This time around, we’d like to introduce you to two new faces – Christopher and Kyle, who are celebrating their one-year anniversary of joining our team in the Quality department! Congrats to both of these NBCo. colleagues and check out the below to learn more.
Christopher joined NBCo. in November 2019 and completes data entry and sequencing folders. He says his favorite part about NBCo. is the friendly and safe work environment. In his free time, Christopher enjoys watching movies, reading, music and learning about new things.
Kyle also joined NBCo. in November 2019 and helps input data entries, and organize and file product folders. He loves the detail and accuracy components of his job – and when he’s not in the office, he likes to draw, play video games and be on the computer.
