Designscapes Colorado's "STEP UP" Program adds 18 new members via Zoom

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 tripled the amount of H2B team members we sponsor from 6 to 18! The announcement on which employees were selected for the program looked a little bit different this year. Due to COVID19, we announced the new candidates via Zoom.

What does Permanent Residency do?
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
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 the values the company represents.

Drumroll Please
