October is here, and once again we are celebrating National Disability Employment Awareness Month (#NDEAM). Reflecting a commitment to a robust and competitive American labor force, the 2019 National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) theme is “The Right Talent, Right Now.” Observed each October, NDEAM celebrates the contributions of workers with disabilities and educates about the value of a workforce inclusive of their skills and talents.T
Please help us in highlighting the accomplishments of all people with disabilities who are employed or have their own business by submitting success stories. We had a great response last year, and are now in search of more great stories as well as updates!
Success stories can be submitted through the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/666Z55P.
October 22, 2019: Thinking to the Future… – Dennis
Dennis has been working at Olive Garden for over six years. He loves going to work. According to his employer, Dennis is a great, reliable worker. The experience of working at this restaurant has made him look to the future. Dennis will tell you that he is building his skills because one day he wants to own his own restaurant. He is not ready to take the next step in owning his own restaurant just yet because, as he puts it, “I want to enjoy my time now while I’m young.”
At Dennis’s core, he is all about his family, and loves spending his days with family and friends. When not at work you’ll find his home is filled with siblings, nieces and nephews. He loves spending his time with them. Working enables Dennis to save up money to on go on vacations with his friends and family.
