Local companies recognized as champions of opportunity

Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities recently announced its 2016 Opportunity Awards winners, which recognizes and highlights Ohio companies committed to providing employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

Meijer was named a Champion of Opportunity for its work in the southwest Ohio region, where the company has face-to-face contact with potential applicants and gives them tours of their facilities. This helps to provide quality vocational guidance for every candidate.

Creating Opportunity Award winners in Greater Cincinnati include:

  • Brookdale, Mason
  • Hayneedle Distribution Center, Monroe
  • Koch Foods Inc, Fairfield
  • Krispy Kreme, Cincinnati
  • Kroger Market Place, Cincinnati
  • Mac’s Pizza and Pub, Maineville
  • Rodizio Grill, Liberty Township
  • Trade Global, West Chester
  • Xscape Theaters Northgate Mall, Cincinnati

These awards seek to recognize companies at various levels in the process: from those who have just begun to recruit, hire, and retain individuals with disabilities to those with a proven track record of integrating individuals with disabilities into their work force. See a full list on the OOD website.
