Charkit Chemical has been named a 2017 STAR Employer of the Year, the company announced.
STAR is a local organization in Norwalk, CT (where Charkit is headquartered) dedicated to assisting developmentally disabled individuals in leading independent lives.
“We are honored to accept this designation which recognizes our employment of Artie St. Armand. Artie first joined us in 2013 and since then he has provided various office services,” said Charkit president Charlie Hinnant. “From shredding obsolete documents to ensuring that our printers are stocked with paper, Artie’s contribution to Charkit has been notable. It’s no small thing that recently, at my request, Artie has been conscientiously disinfecting our doorknobs, thereby helping to keep us all healthier, especially during this year’s rampant flu season.”
Added Carolyn Finn, Charkit’s vice president of human resources: “STAR clearly has had a positive impact on many lives. In addition to Artie, all Charkit employees have benefited and grown through our partnership with STAR. We’re honored to be named Employer of the Year and sincerely appreciate Charlie’s support of the program.”
