Workers with Disabilities: Talent for a Winning Team

Posted in News at 12:46 pm

The U.S. Congress has designated each October as National Disability Employment Awareness Month. This year’s theme is “Workers with Disabilities: Talent for a Winning Team!”

To help create awareness among businesses, persons with disabilities and the citizens of Manitowoc County, the Job Center has set up a display with information about employment services and disability resources.

In addition, businesses can take advantage of the Disability Navigator Program. The purpose of this program is to expand the workforce development system’s capacity to service customers with disabilities and inform employers about disability issues.

Patty Branton, Disability Program Navigator for the Bay Area Workforce Development Area, serves Manitowoc County and may be reached at 920.448.7217. Branton provides no-cost consulting and training for businesses on disability issues and incentives.

For more information, please visit the display at the Manitowoc County Job Center, 3733 Dewey Street, Manitowoc, available Monday – Friday from 8 AM to 4:30 PM.
