Convenience store chain Kwik Trip – which operates in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa – has found hiring people with disabilities an effective strategy for meeting its workforce needs. To ensure its Guest Services Coworkers can deliver exemplary customer service, especially at peak times, the company partnered with VR to create a new position, Retail Helper, to assist with other tasks. Today, Retail Helpers are in all three states, with VR serving as a single point of contact for recruitment and training. In recognition of its efforts, Kwik Trip was named 2018 “Business of the Year” by the Council of State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation’s National Employment Team (NET).
