The 12th annual celebration was held at Tallahassee City Hall and was part of the October Disability Employment Awareness Month. Margaret Cote, from The Arc of Tampa Bay, accepted the award on Dosatron’s behalf and was presented by the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD), Blind Services, and Vocational Rehabilitation.
APD Director, Barbara Palmer said, "I am so excited to recognize these ten exceptional businesses today. These deserving companies have committed to employing a diverse workforce. These businesses know that individuals with special abilities are some of the most dedicated employees you can find." APD supports people with developmental disabilities to live, learn, and work in their communities and serves more than 50,000 Floridians.
Dosatron has been hiring people with disabilities for over 20 years and recently celebrated the 20-year retirement of an employee with unique abilities. Dosatron currently has two individuals on the payroll with special skills performing tasks as parts processor and packaging specialist. They are part of the Dosatron team and treated with respect.
