NAPA, Calif. (October 13, 2016) – Napa Valley’s largest independent resort, The Meritage Resort and Spa is the recipient of the United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of the North Bay’s Employer of the Year award for Napa County. UCP of the North Bay presented the award to the resort during its annual Grapes & Gratitude gala at Jacuzzi Winery in early October.

The Employer of the Year award recognizes business partners in Napa, Sonoma and Marin counties whose exceptional activities, achievements and dedication exemplify UCP’s mission to educate, advocate and provide support services to ensure a Life Without Limits for people with disabilities. It also acknowledges that each workplace has made an outstanding contribution to employing people with disabilities and sets an impressive standard offering dignified employment to people with disabilities and helping to make a significant shift in cultural views.

“We are honored to have these hardworking team members at our resort every day,” said Michael Palmer, general manager of The Meritage Resort. “They come to work smiling, excited to do their jobs, and always encourage other staff and our guests with their words and actions.”

The Meritage Resort currently has two teams from UCP of the North Bay, consisting of ten employees with special needs, on its staff, assisting in its Food & Beverage Guest Rooms departments. “We work very closely with UCP of the North Bay to ensure that we provide these valuable team members with the right tasks and the best working conditions,” said Tami Pacho, team member services manager at The Meritage Resort. “We look forward to growing this valuable program at our resort in 2017 and beyond as we continue to seek the most talented team members throughout the North Bay to provide the highest level of service to our guests.”
