In the Fall of 2013, Pinnacle Sports was awarded by the Ohio division of the Association of People Supporting Employment First (APSE) for its work in teaming with the Medina County Board of Developmental Disabilities to help employ individuals with disabilities. Pinnacle Sports was recognized as Employer of the Year for the Medium Sized business category for the State of Ohio.
“Pinnacle is known for recognizing the strengths that people with disabilities bring to their business. They are flexible in such a way that allows for the unique skills and talents of each employee to shine. Pinnacle has made several changes at their facility in order to fully integrate individuals with disabilities into their workforce. For an employee named Aaron, Pinnacle gave him a chance to belong and become part of the community. Pinnacle has certainly set the stage for other employers in the area.”
Pinnacle Sports currently employs 2 individuals placed from the Medina County Board of DD. Pinnacle has also opened their doors to the Board of DD for numerous job trials and work assessments for other individuals looking to be placed at jobs all around Medina County.
