EXPECT – EMPLOY – EMPOWER

 

Did you know that people with disabilities have the highest rate of unemployment in the United States, with only an estimated 12% employed in integrated community jobs?

The U.S. Department of Labor has announced that the 2014 theme for National Disability Employment Awareness Month in October is Expect – Employ – Empower. The goal of the national recognition is to raise awareness about disability employment issues and to celebrate American workers with disabilities.

We honor employers in our region and across Ohio who support employment opportunities for hard-working, dependable and loyal employees with disabilities.
