Ohio Employer of the Year Award

The Ohio Governor’s Council on People with Disabilities is seeking nominations for the Ohio Employer of the Year Awards. They are presented each year, to the most outstanding employers of people with disabilities in the state.

The purpose of these awards is to honor the nominees judged most outstanding in meeting the criteria for the current year. The employers selected are considered a symbol of all who have significantly contributed to employment opportunities for people with disabilities. It is anticipated that their example will inspire others and that our public recognition will encourage employers to emphasize ability rather than disability as the important factor in employment, promotion, and advancement within the company.

These awards are presented at the Annual Awards Ceremony of the Governor’s Council on People with Disabilities. Applications are accepted at any time during the year. However, the application must be submitted by July 15, 2017 to be considered for the Annual Awards Ceremony held in September, 2017.
