C & M Screw Machine Products Recognizes Talent When They See It, so They Stepped Up!
Meet Victor and Betty DaCruz from C & M Screw Machine Products in Bristol. When they were seeking to build their workforce, the reached out to Capital Workforce Partners and CTWorks. The CTWorks team had an individual in mind for them, but he had some "barriers" they needed to consider - namely this candidate was deaf. Victor and Betty interviewed the individual, and with a little added boost from our "STEP UP" program, recognized his abilities and he was hired on the spot. In June, C & M Screw Machine Products was recognized as the Business Workforce Star Winner at the Capital Workforce Partners Hall of Fame event, where this picture was taken.
Here is a thank you note to Jill Larmett, Capital Workforce Partners' Disability Resources Coordinator, who assisted them:
I wanted to personally thank you for your nomination and for your hard work in bringing this candidate and C&M together. He is such an asset to our company and we feel so lucky to have found him with your help!
I also wanted to tell you how inspirational and eye-opening of an experience the breakfast celebration was. It has helped me see individual differently and look more for their potential rather than their limitations! Thank you for inviting us to be a part of it!
