The Business Recource Network along with the Disability Awareness Commission is proud to announce the Disability Friendly Recognition Program!
We will be awarding local businesses who employ one or more persons with a disability as a way of saying thank you and to give them the recognition they deserve. So watch for the “Disability Friendly” sticker on the doors of local businesses!
We would appreciate your help! If you know of a local business that currently employs a person with a disability, please let us know by clicking the Business Nomination button on the left and submitting your nomination. Thanks!

The South Dakota Department of Human Services (DHS) has now launched its “Ability for Hire” campaign! The goal of the campaign will be to promote the benefits of, as well as change the public perceptions about, the hiring of people with disabilities. Visit the Ability for Hire website to learn how businesses like Camille’s Sidewalk Café in Sioux Falls, Great Lakes Higher Education in Aberdeen, and Avera regional hospitals have both enriched and diversified their workforce through hiring individuals with disabilities.
