Since 2018, the Designscapes Colorado "STEP UP" program was established to assist some of our legal H2B visa employees to become legal U.S. permanent residents. This year we added 10 H2B team members to begin the process to obtain permanent residency! We announced the employees selected for the program with a small reception at our office.
What is permanent residency?
For those that may not know, permanent residency would give team members the flexibility to stay in the United States for more time than what the H2B visa allows for. Currently our H2B employees are only allowed to work in the United States eight months out of the year.
The process for obtaining permanent residency is long and the team members that are awarded this sponsorship sacrifice a lot. The selection process is based on an internal application that reflects the employee's individual goals and values the company represents.
Joining the classes of 2018, 2019 and 2020, Designscapes Colorado is proud to announce the following team members to the "STEP UP" program:
- David Lopez Cerda
- Jorge Gutierrez Sanchez
- Hector Flores Pina
- Fabian Vargas Leon
- Hernan Garcia
- Ubaldo Viurquez Zermeno
- Felipe Lozano Gamino
- Diego Palma Prado
- Alberto Perez Martinez
- Juan Cesar Ivan Lopez
Congrats to our new members!
