North Dakota: Legendary. Follow the trail of legends


“We hire people with disabilities for their abilities. We found that our other employees see these individuals overcoming extraordinary challenges and achieving success. They try to mirror that positive behavior. All of our employees know that we care about them and our community. It is because of that sense of community that we have built a diverse workforce. I believe it has a positive effect on our business, whether people on the outside see it or not. I would absolutely recommend that other employers work with DVR to find qualified employees with disabilities.”

Clients from DVR have the willingness and the drive to do their very best. We want them to be successful, and by working with DVR Counselors, this process is very beneficial to everyone and saves time for all involved.”

“Sheyenne Tooling & Manufacturing had the opportunity to work with the North Dakota Division of Vocational Rehabilitation team in December of 2008, and found it to be a pleasant and beneficial experience – for our business and our new employee. We found a skilled applicant and were able to provide a job opportunity for another individual in our community. North Dakota Division of Vocational Rehabilitation helped us create a successful opportunity that has allowed the individual, and our organization, to grow”
