Norfolk Resident Honored By Lifeworks
Lifeworks, a nonprofit human services provider that supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), announced that Jeremy Jordan of Norfolk was the recipient of its Dependable Employee Award, one of several of the organization’s Employment Services awards. These awards recognize individuals who have gone above and beyond at their jobs in the community.
In a press release, Lifeworks noted that Jordan has proven to be an extremely reliable worker who enthusiastically does his part for his shifts. “Jeremy possesses every characteristic of a wonderful employee who is a quick learner and willing to do what is needed to get the job done,” said the company in a statement.
Because of COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, and in lieu of the traditional June banquet, this year’s awards ceremony was a hybrid event held Nov. 6, with some individuals honored in person and others via video conference.
Lifeworks’ Employment Services Program provides ongoing job training and placement services to adults living with IDD, such as autism. Lifeworks partners with many Greater Boston employers, along with local and statewide workforce initiatives for the disability community. Over the past 30 years, Lifeworks has placed hundreds of talented, dependable individuals in food, customer service, manufacturing, fulfillment, warehouse, retail and office support positions.
