The Delaware Tech Terry Campus human resources and administrative services divisions were recently acknowledged and honored for hiring people with disabilities by the Delaware Department of Labor’s Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and the State Rehabilitation Council. Charlotte Lister, director of human resources, and Ray Parsons, director of administrative services, accepted the Outstanding Business Award for Kent County during a December 12, 2016 recognition ceremony.
The campus was selected for the award because of a new diversity workforce initiative that implements a selective placement program for people with disabilities. Started in June 2016, the initiative gives qualified job seekers from the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and the Division of the Visually Impaired the opportunity to apply for open positions on campus five days prior to the position being posted. To date, two full-time administrative services employees have been hired through the initiative.
“We truly appreciate this recognition and are proud to be working with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation and the Division of the Visually Impaired to make our campus an inclusive workplace,” said June Turansky, Vice President and Campus Director for the Terry Campus.
