Making Disability Matter: UPMC Earns Prestigious Employer of Choice Award

PITTSBURGH, May 5, 2015 UPMC has been selected as a 2015 honoree for the Disability Matters—Employer of Choice award. UPMC previously received the Disability Matters Workforce award in 2012, 2013 and 2014 for initiatives that touch on recruiting, training, reasonable accommodations, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The prestigious honor of Employer of Choice award was given in consideration of UPMC taking its Disability Matters award-winning initiatives to a level where there is complete synergy between mission and achievement.

UPMC was honored for workforce development programs and the ways in which it assists individuals facing barriers to obtain work at UPMC. Corporate initiatives such as the Military Talent Network, Partnership on Work Readiness and Retention, Project SEARCH and Young Leaders Academy enable UPMC to work with various community partners and individuals with disabilities to assist them in preparing for job opportunities at UPMC. These initiatives also serve as recruitment pipelines and help decrease employee turnover.
