Bridgeport, CT — Goodwill of Western & Northern Connecticut, Inc. selected TFI Envision, Inc. to develop the invitation for their 2015 Achievement Awards Luncheon.

TFI Envision created the invitation materials with a bit of whimsy so that it would stand out from the typical invitation. The design reflects the energetic and enthusiastic nature of the event which recognizes Goodwill award winners and celebrates agency accomplishments.

Awards are presented in the following categories: Graduate, Achiever, Employer and Community Partner.

The Goodwill Graduate Award honors individuals with disabilities or other special needs who have completed a Goodwill program and have demonstrated outstanding achievement in attaining competitive employment in the community.

Goodwill’s Achiever of the Year award is presented to an individual who has overcome significant barriers to achieve their goals for success in both the workplace and in daily life. The individual who receives this award has continued to grow on the job while achieving their personal aspirations.

Goodwill of Western and Northern Connecticut is a non-profit organization that has provided support services to people with disabilities and other barriers to employment since 1951. Last year, 17,800 individuals in local Connecticut communities were served by Goodwill programs.

One of the Most Inspiring Companies

Forbes recently released its annual list of America’s Most Inspiring Companies, and for the third year in a row, it included Goodwill. Coming in at #11 in 2014, Goodwill is the only nonprofit to make the prestigious list. Last year, Goodwill ranked #19. According to Forbes reporter Susan Adams, “Goodwill is a company with a long history of providing employment and job training to veterans and people with disabilities and other challenges.”

The list is based on results from Performance Inspired, Inc., a consulting and training firm that helps organizations elevate performance through “the science of inspiration.” Prior to surveying 3,300 consumers to rank how inspirational they found a number of businesses, respondents were asked to think about the values, behaviors and attitudes of a hypothetical inspirational company and how it might compare to a real company.
