You don't have to be a hospitality giant to attract a diverse workforce. A brew pub chain, a pie shop and two cafes and Sodexho recently were honored for their efforts to employ people with disabilities.

The Ruderman Family Foundation recently recognized 18 Best in Business companies that lead the way in hiring and supporting people with disabilities. Among them: Indianapolis-based Scotty's Brewhouse, Power Cafe in Boston, Coco Cafe in British Columbia and Centerville Pie Company.

Scotty's, which aims increase its percentage of employees with disabilities to 10 percent next year, created a short video to get the word out about its efforts. "I want people to understand that we hire everybody," says founder and CEO Scott Wise. "These are all people who are capable and willing and want to work. Why wouldn’t we give them an opportunity?"
