Action has worked closely with the Center for Employment Opportunities (CEO) for many years. CEO is dedicated to providing immediate, effective and comprehensive employment services to men and women with recent criminal convictions. Their highly structured and tightly supervised programs help participants regain the skills and confidence needed for successful transitions into the working environment.
Through our partnership with CEO, we are happy to say that we have helped employees from CEO build a foundation for a stable and productive life for themselves and their families.
I am pleased to announce that last Thursday two of our employees were honored at the annual Center for Employment Opportunities Award Gala, with their families and friends in attendance.
Luis Lopez, who is a Route Supervisor from our Bronx Casanova Depot, was awarded the “Outstanding Achievement Award.” Luis was recognized for his outstanding performance, superior dedication and positive attitude on the job throughout the past year. Luis who began working with Action through the CEO program grew from a Helper to a Route Supervisor in just two short years.
Also being honored at the gala was Marc Lopez, a Driver from our Jersey City Depot. Marc was recognized for his dedication and achievements with the “Leadership Achievement Award” in recognition of his ongoing dedication and growth. Marc has been a key member of the Action team starting out as a helper in 2011 and growing into a world-class Driver.
Thank you to both men for their dedication and for living our companies core values!
