"Not only are we respected in our field, ACDI/VOCA takes care of its employees with competitive salaries and benefit packages," says Ball, citing staff development programs like e-Cornell University certificate learning, tuition reimbursement and many other opportunities.
"This investment promises return in exceptional quality employees with our mission being our ultimate goal," Ball adds.
