NYS Office for People With Developmental Disabilities Recognizes Businesses and Employees at 9th “Works for Me” Awards Ceremony

Building on the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities’ (OPWDD) mission to help people live richer lives in the community, six businesses were honored October 19, 2017 at the New York State Museum’s Huxley Theater in Albany as recipients of OPWDD’s Works for Me awards.

Works for Me awards are given to businesses across the state that are committed to workforce diversity and to hiring individuals with developmental disabilities. These businesses recognize the significant contributions that individuals can make in the workplace and that hiring workers with developmental disabilities makes good business sense.

Large Business of the Year Award Winner: 
Conduent, Endicott, NY
Conduent of Endicott believes that providing job accommodations for individuals with disabilities is a
priority for the overall success of the business. David Walling has been working in Conduent’s integrated workforce for three years as a transaction processor handling data entry work. While only working part-time, David consistently outperforms many of the full-time employees.

Country Valley Industries Receives Frito Lay Award

Country Valley Industries (CVI), a subsidiary of ACHIEVE, is proud to announce that they are the recipient of the Frito-Lay “Quality Level of Excellence” Award for 2014! The award was presented to CVI in recognition of the near perfect year they had in quality control. The CVI Frito Lay Production Team shipped out 2.9 million bags of snack chips with only one error resulting in being one bag short in a package!

Frito-Lay presented the award to Country Valley Industries on Wednesday, March 4th at the annual Frito Lay Co-Packer conference held in Dallas, Texas. This is the second award that CVI has received in the past 5 years. In 2009 CVI was presented with the coveted Frito-Lay “Contract Manufacturing Quality” Award, granted once a year to the top performing re-packer for Frito-Lay who ranks the highest in Quality Control.

CVI Manufacturing Manager, Duwayne Caroway, states, “This is a very big accomplishment for the team at CVI – to ship out that many bags and only ship one wrong bag shows our consistent commitment to quality.”

Country Valley Industries operates four employment centers – in Binghamton, Johnson City, and Owego.  These centers offer a number of vocational opportunities for individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities through a number of contracts with community businesses.
