NRC Ranked as a “Top 20” Government Agency in “CAREERS & the disABLED” Magazine

The NRC was recently recognized for its diverse workforce. Readers of “CAREERS & the disABLED” magazine selected the top agencies in the country for which they would most prefer to work or believe are progressive in hiring people with disabilities. Readers ranked the NRC as one of the “Top 20 Government Agencies.”

“CAREERS & the disABLED” magazine is the nation’s only career-guidance and recruitment magazine for people with disabilities at undergraduate, graduate or professional levels.

The NRC works hard to recruit people with disabilities. The NRC provides reasonable accommodations to remove workplace barriers for people with disabilities. These accommodations may include specialized computers and other assistive technology or equipment, telework and other flexible work schedules and sign language interpreting services.

In addition, employees with disabilities are provided opportunities for advancement and leadership roles within the agency. Employees with disabilities hold such positions as engineers, branch chiefs and program analysts, among others. In 2011, one such employee was awarded the 2011 NRC Meritorious Service Award for Equal Employment Opportunity Excellence.

We are proud that the readers of this magazine recognize our efforts.

    Congratulations to you. Continue in hiring people with disabilities. I also believe that they can do better more than a normal person.
