Nominate an Exceptional Employer Today!

APD and its partners want to recognize exceptional businesses from around the state that are committed to employing people with disabilities. We need you to nominate an Exceptional Employer now so they may be considered for an award. The exceptional employers will be recognized because their companies demonstrate an outstanding commitment to hiring individuals with disabilities. Visit to submit an Employer Award nomination.

The employer recognition event will be held on October 4 with a celebration at Tallahassee City Hall, 300 South Adams Street. At the event, there will be informational displays, refreshments, and speakers talking about the importance of providing opportunities for people with disabilities to go to work.

This free public event will be held at the Tallahassee City Commission Chambers on October 4, beginning at 8:30 a.m. Please plan to join us.
