In October, Lintons participated in National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), an annual, nationwide campaign that celebrates the contributions of workers with disabilities, and emphasizes the importance of ensuring that all Americans have access to the services and supports to enable them to work. This year’s official theme was America’s Workforce: Empowering All.
“Americans of all abilities must have access to good, safe jobs,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta. “Smart employers know that including different perspectives in problem-solving situations leads to better solutions.”
Reflecting this year’s theme, Lintons provided a variety of activities to educate our associates on disability employment issues and our commitment to an inclusive work culture. These efforts included a company-wide associate in-service, ongoing mentoring programs, associate spotlights, and recognition celebrations. 
“Lintons is proud to be a part of this year’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month,” said Linda Paugh, Director of Human Resources. “We want to spread the important message that we value all perspectives, including those of individuals with disabilities.”
