VERC Enterprises Honored for Its Hiring of Disabled Individuals
DUXBURY, Mass. -- In recognition of its efforts to hire individuals with disabilities, VERC Enterprises has been selected a 2013 Accommodation Award winner by the MetroWest Work Opportunities Coalition. The convenience store chain will be honored on May 13 at a ceremony held at Ken's Steak House in Framingham, Mass.
The MetroWest Work Opportunities Coalition, an association of agencies that provide job placement services to those with disabilities, annually recognizes companies that provide opportunities for disabled men and women who are willing and able to work, according to the announcement.
"It is a privilege to be named a recipient of the Accommodation Award from the MetroWest Work Opportunities Coalition," said Leo Vercollone, president of Duxbury, Mass.-based VERC Enterprises, which operates c-stores and gas stations in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. "We are proud of our commitment to employ those in our communities with developmental challenges. It is a commitment we plan on honoring for many years to come."
VERC Enterprises has been honored for its commitment to hiring individuals with disabilities multiple times in recent years and in 2012, the company was named a Top Place to Work by the Boston Globe, as CSNews Online previously reported.
