VERC Enterprises Recognized for Its Hiring Practices
DUXBURY, Mass. -- VERC Enterprises was honored for its commitment to hiring people with development disabilities during the 16th annual "Celebrating Families" at the Massachusetts State House.
VERC, a convenience store chain and Mobil and Gulf gasoline operator with 24 locations in eastern Massachusetts and New Hampshire, was recognized by the Bay State for its innovative work to provide care, community inclusion and self-determination for those with disabilities.
"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," said Leo Vercollone, president of VERC Enterprises.
During the ceremony last month, VERC was specifically commended for its commitment to "having a workforce where 20 percent of the staff is developmentally disabled."
