Swiss Post Solutions (SPS), an innovative leader in business process outsourcing and digitization solutions, is proud to announce that its Chief People Officer, Russ Cusick, was recently recognized at the Georgetown University Conference on Employment of People with Disabilities for his contributions to the empowerment and employment of disabled people.
Hosted by Georgetown University, in partnership with the National Business & Disabilities Council (NBDC), the Conference is an annual symposium held at the US Chamber of Commerce that aims to bring awareness to the difficulties and opportunities in the employment of people with disabilities. This year’s conference focused on educating employers on the challenges faced by returning disabled veterans.
Since 2004, Cusick has been an active supporter and advocate of these initiatives, and served as an advisory board member and now Chairman of the Board for Abilities, Inc. and the NBDC, both of which are organizations part of the nationwide non-profit network, The Viscardi Center.
“I am very honored and humbled to be recognized for my commitment to this very worthy cause. SPS is happy to lead the way with our dedication to diversity in the workplace, and to tap into all resources available in order find and hire the best talent for our organizational needs,” said Cusick.
John D. Kemp, President and CEO of The Viscardi Center, noted, “It is through widespread involvement and support that we continue to bring awareness to the employment hardships faced by people with disabilities, to utilize their job skills and talents, and make progress toward improving opportunities for these individuals.”
In attendance were several members of Congress and government officials, as well as representatives from large US corporations who served as panelists discussing the importance of employing disabled veterans.
The event honored Congresswomen Tammy Duckworth and Cathy McMorris Rogers for their outstanding contributions to the independence and employment of people with disabilities.
