DERMagic Skin Care for Animals received an Outstanding Employer Award from the Community Alliance and Association of Washington Business.
The award honors Washington State businesses, government agencies and non-profit corporations that have made exceptional efforts to employ people with disabilities; and who by their recruitment, hiring, retention and promotion polices are role models in their communities.
The Seattle-based company was nominated by Northwest Center, a leader in promoting the rights and independence of infants, children, teens and adults with developmental disabilities. DERMagic employs five part-time employees for making product samples and labeling products.
"We are grateful to receive this honor," said Dr. Adelia Ritchie, founder of DERMagic. "The Northwest Center is a wonder resource for local businesses and we're thrilled to have found such dedicated individuals."
