Watlow, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems, recently announced that it has been named Employer of the Year for 2016 by the Missouri Rehabilitation Association – Eastern Chapter (MRA). The award recognizes employers in the community that have made a significant difference in advancing the employment opportunities of individuals with disabilities.
Watlow was nominated for Employer of the Year by the Center for Head Injuries. Watlow began its relationship with the Center for Head Injuries, MERS Goodwill and other MRA affiliates about two years ago and has hired people from such organizations through Talent Connect.
Watlow’s relationship with these organizations continues to grow through involvement and the direct employment of intelligent and capable people.
Watlow was nominated along with five other companies, but ultimately won because of its leadership in areas such as increasing public awareness, career advancement, development and training.
“We are thrilled to have won the Employer of the Year award,” said Adriana Borojevic, human resource generalist at Watlow. “We are proud of our partnership with the Center for Head Injuries, and we are proud of the team members who have joined us from the organization. We are grateful to them for nominating us and we want to thank the MRA for the recognition.”
The company was recognized on April 29 at the 7th Annual Dinner and Awards Banquet where several Watlow team members were on hand to receive the award.
