The BCDI would like to recognize all of the local businesses and members who are committed to diversity and inclusion in their hiring practices. All individuals, including those with disabilities, have a right to gainful employment, and the commitment of our members to include these individuals in their workforce is not only helping their bottom line, but it is also helping individuals with disabilities seeking employment to live more fulfilling lives. Members, we thank you.


The Partner Spotlight is to recognize one BCDI member that has gone above and beyond to participate in the BCDI trainings in the previous calendar quarter.

Global Connections to Employment (GCE)

Global Connections to Employment (GCE) has a long history as one of the largest employers of people with disabilities under the AbilityOne® Program. GCE is the largest employer of people with disabilities in NW Florida. We begin by connecting them to meaningful employment, and ultimately, meaningful lives. In SW Florida we employ over 177 individuals in the Tampa area alone with 122 out of that total being GCE team members with a significant disability. Overall, GCE employs over 1,800 individuals in 14 states and the District of Columbia and over 1,200 have a significant disability.

Our service lines are: • Business services • Custodial services • Facilities maintenance • Food services • Health care environmental services • IT services • Employment and support services • Contact centers

We focus on our team members to identify what they consider success and to customize each project to their individual needs. We believe that everyone who wants to work should have the opportunity to work. It is imperative that we truly be inclusive, and not just from an optics standpoint. We believe in the importance of a disability friendly culture at all of our work sites. We encourage people with disabilities to speak up and be heard. We celebrate diversity, of any kind, we know it brings a variety of perspectives that helps us to continuously evolve and grow and be a better employer. Our secret to success is simple – highly engaged employees who live our Values of ownership, integrity, compassion, excellence and service and believe in our mission of helping people throughout their life’s journey. Each person has their own unique quest for success and personal fulfillment and our goal is to help them reach their goals.
