PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Aramark (NYSE: ARMK), a global leader in food, facilities management and uniforms, has once again been named a Top 50 employer for providing a positive working environment for people with disabilities by CAREERS & the disABLED magazine.

"We are honored to be named a Top 50 employer for people with disabilities," said Lynn B. McKee, Executive Vice President of Human Resources for Aramark. "We greatly appreciate the valuable contributions of our disabled associates and are committed to providing them with a positive environment where they can be successful."

CAREERS & the disABLED is the only national career recruitment publication for people with disabilities in the United States. The magazine surveys readers who select the top companies in the country for which they would most prefer to work or believe provide a positive working environment for people with disabilities.  

Aramark is a proud partner with several leading organizations that support disability inclusion and development, including Bridges From School to Work, a program of the Marriott Foundation dedicated to transforming the lives of young adults with disabilities by assisting them in finding fulfilling work. Last year, Bridges recognized Aramark as one of their top five company partners. 

In addition, the company partners with the US Business Leadership Network (USBLN), a national non-profit that helps business derive performance by leveraging disability inclusion in the workplace, supply chain, and marketplace. The USBLN® serves as the collective voice of nearly 50 Business Leadership Network affiliates across the United States, representing over 5,000 businesses.

Aramark has received considerable recognition for its diversity and inclusion efforts in recent months, including earning a perfect score of 100% on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC)  2016 Corporate Equality Index, a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBT workplace equality; and being named one of the Top 40 Best Companies for Diversity by BLACK ENTERPRISE.
