DRS recognizes Security America in Charleston as an Exemplary Employer

The West Virginia Division of Rehabilitation Services (DRS) recognized Security America in Charleston as an exemplary employer and partner as part of National Disability Employment Awareness Month this October.

Security America has demonstrated excellence in its diverse hiring practices by creating an inclusive workplace, and DRS recognizes this organization for its positive contributions within our communities.

"Security America has been an excellent partner in providing employment and training opportunities for individuals with disabilities. The employer has been a cooperative partner in meeting job seekers’ accommodation needs and in helping to reduce job-related barriers. This organization has also participated in DRS' on-the-job training program with several DRS consumers, which led to gainful employment for those who successfully completed the training. Security America shares job openings with DRS, which increases opportunities to create a diverse workforce."
