National Disability Employment Awareness Month
Held each October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is a national campaign that raises awareness about disability employment issues and celebrates the many and varied contributions of America's workers with disabilities. The theme for 2014 is "Expect. Employ. Empower."
MacFarlane Pheasants, Janesville, has worked closely with Wisconsin Division of Vocational rehabilitation (DVR) to recruit and hire job seekers with disabilities. Earlier this month, as part of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) , the company was recognized for those efforts. At an award ceremony, DVR presented the company with an Exemplary Employer Award from Governor Scott Walker.
