WRPS Talent Development Coordinator Britt Easter and Human Resources Staffing Lead Chastity Bitters greet attendees at a job fair designed to assist disabled workers. WRPS joined more than 30 other area employers who set up booths to take resumes and coordinate interviews. The event, which took place the last week of October at the TRAC in Pasco, was aptly named Building Bridges and Breaking Down Barriers.
“There are so many stereotypes, and the first barrier we have to overcome is the limitations we put on disabled employees because of our own personal biases,” said WRPS Compliance Programs lead Lisa Bunch. “We want to break down existing barriers and move beyond them to expand employment opportunities for disabled workers.”
