Springfield Walmart recognized by state agency


Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities has recognized 30 Ohio Walmart stores, including one in Springfield, with the Committed to Opportunity Award for their leadership in integrating individuals with disabilities into Ohio’s workforce.

Springfield’s location at 200 S. Tuttle Road was one of those recognized.

“Walmart is the largest retailer in the world and has taken it upon themselves to make sure that well qualified and capable individuals who happen to have disabilities are integrated into their corporate culture,” said OOD Executive Director Kevin Miller. “By embracing a culture of inclusion and diversity, the lives of those individuals with disabilities are enhanced, the community benefits and the workforce is strengthened.”

OOD’s partnership with Walmart allows vocational rehabilitation counselors and job developers to discuss what skills and positions are available and help match job ready candidates to Walmart human resources staff.

OOD is the state agency responsible for assisting individuals with disabilities to gain meaningful employment, to live independently or receive disability benefits through the Social Security Administration. www.ood.ohio.gov
