In recognition of the university’s commitment to being an inclusive workplace, Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) has awarded Ohio State with a 2019 Employer Partner of Inclusion Gold Award.
Ohio State received this honor for creating a culture that encourages the support and advancement of employees with disabilities. In addition, Ohio State’s partnership with OOD includes a full-time talent sourcing coordinator on the Human Resources talent team and facilitates the hiring of many OOD candidates across all campuses and the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center.
“We value our partnership with OOD and appreciate the recognition of our commitment to providing a positive workplace culture for all employees,” Susan Basso, senior vice president for talent, culture and human resources, said.
OOD presented the award to HR representatives from the university on Wednesday, October 9, at the 2019 OOD job fair, held at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center.
