October is Disability Employment Awareness Month in Florida. This is when our state and the nation focus on job opportunities for people with disabilities.
In today’s business world, talent is in demand. Many businesses are opening their doors to people with disabilities and have discovered a wealth of dependable job talent.
The Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD), Vocational Rehabilitation, Blind Services, and other organizations will gather virtually on Oct. 14 at 10 a.m. to recognize 10 Florida businesses who have demonstrated their commitment to hiring people with disabilities. The Exceptional Employer Awards are another opportunity for the state to acknowledge employers that are doing the right thing for their business, the individual hired, and the community.
