MADISON, Wis. (WEAU) -- Gov. Scott walker is looking for submissions for the Wisconsin Job Honors awards.
The program recognizes individuals who have overcome significant barriers to employment while honoring both their accomplishments and the employers who provide them the opportunity to demonstrate their workplace abilities. Previous nominees have overcome physical and mental disabilities, criminal convictions and other barriers to achieve gainful employment.
Nominations are due Sept. 4.
Last year, Larson Companies, an Eau Claire based company that operates hotels and restaurants, was recognized for the development of hospitality training academies to provide individuals with disabilities with the training necessary to acquire employment in the hospitality industry.
The awards will be presented during their Future Wisconsin Economic Summit at the Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center scheduled for Nov. 29 in Madison.
