ZTR Control Systems: Everyone has challenges; we all need to empathize and understand when someone needs a little help or just a break. Recognizing someone’s strength and drive to succeed inspires us all. #Tuesat10
ZTR Control Systems: In a previous position, I was asked to hire seven employees with disabilities, train and oversee them. It was daunting at first but it turned out to be one of the most rewarding and educational experiences of my career. #Tuesat10
ZTR Control Systems: If we have a candidate that requires accommodations, we immediately consider what we need to do to facilitate that person, both in the interview stages and if they are the successful candidate. We may question whether we are properly equipped or if we need to acquire special tools for assistance. #Tuesat10
ZTR Control Systems: We always look for the best candidate and to find the right fit to work within our organization. We look at all candidates equally and give each and every one of our candidates an opportunity. Often we don’t know unless they tell us. We will accommodate the best candidate for the position. #Tuesat10
ZTR Control Systems: He's impressed us so much with his work ethic, commitment to the company, ability to coach & mentor student hires. He began as a 3-month contract employee, was then hired FT & then promoted to team lead position overseeing seven employees. #Tuesat10
ZTR Control Systems: We still go through same process. We consider ourselves progressive & aware company but as perceptions change we evolve to meet needs of individual. We are innovative in our approach to both business and employees. The secret is to listen and learn. #Tuesat10
ZTR Control Systems: Our HR department has an open door & open mind policy. Changes in perception happen through conversations. People can’t change what they don’t know. Being open and suspending judgement of trepidations or lack of knowledge opens the door to change. #Tuesat10
