We Need Exceptional Employers!

APD, Vocational Rehabilitation, Blind Services, and our disability partners are looking for outstanding Florida employers with a history of hiring people with disabilities. We want to recognize exceptional businesses from around the state who are committed to employing people with disabilities. We hope you will nominate an Exceptional Employer to be considered for this prestigious award. Due to COVID-19, the companies that win will be recognized during an online ceremony in October for demonstrating an outstanding commitment to hiring individuals with disabilities. Click here to nominate an employer. The nomination deadline is Monday, September 14. Feel free to share this information with others who may be aware of great employers.
