We’re proud to say that out of 59 Joslin Outstanding Performers recognized across New York State, 20 are from the Capital Region/Hudson Valley area. We’re particularly proud of one of those 20 individuals… Our very own Robert Rowe!
The New York State Industries for the Disabled (NYSID) is a not-for-profit that creates job opportunities for thousands of New Yorkers with disabilities each year. The Joslin Awards program is NYSID’s recognition of exemplary job performance by workers within its Preferred Sources of employment. Each worker selected as an Outstanding Performer receives an award certificate, a prize, and a feature in the annual yearbook.
Outstanding Performers are selected based on certain criteria, including (but not limited to) the following:
- Outstanding job performance for a minimum of 12 months on NYSID contract
- Success through employment, like learning/mastering new skills and taking on new assignments
- Personal success, such as being a role model and getting involved in the community
- Exemplifying the NYSID mission, “Turning business opportunities into jobs for New Yorkers with disabilities.”
In regards to this year’s Outstanding Performers class, NYSID President & CEO Ron Romano said, “For 40 years, NYSID has been turning business opportunities into jobs for New Yorkers with disabilities … They provide incredible examples of how much New York State benefits by having a workforce that is inclusive of persons with disabilities.” We couldn’t agree more, as we watch Robert be an “incredible example” each and every day that he comes to work at eBizDocs.
In the words of Ed Canary, eBizDocs’ Director of Operations:
At first glance you can see that Robert Rowe is a perfect gentleman; mild mannered, polite, and always wanting to do the right thing both on and off the clock. He has become a go-to person here in many areas — doc prep, pick-ups and deliveries, general maintenance, building and grounds… He is the type of person who would rather be 20 minutes early to work than even 2 minutes late! We are very lucky to have Robert on our team; a hardworking, independent, quality-conscious person with a great outlook on life.
Please help us congratulate Robert for earning this well-deserved, prestigious honor!
