Employment Technologies Corporation (ETC), a pioneer in employment simulations, was honored by the Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission (EDC) at the William C. Schwartz Industry Innovation Awards luncheon on Thursday, September 26, at Full Sail LIVE. The EDC selects one company from each county in the region – Orange, Seminole, Lake, Osceola, as well as the City of Orlando, and the Florida High Tech Corridor Council – recognizing them for innovative practices and exceptional impact on the region.
ETC co-founder and President, Joseph Sefcik, and ETC Director of Innovation, Joe LaTorre, accepted the award on behalf of the company. The Orange County-based company revolutionized the hiring process for companies worldwide by replacing traditional text-based employment tests with highly realistic, interactive simulations.

ETC’s co-founder and CEO, Eugenia Sefcik, also established a local community outreach program which sponsors at-risk inner city Orlando youth to attend the life-changing camp, Kids Across America. Since its inception in 2005, the program has provided more than 250 teen scholarships.
“This award is a testament to our team’s hard work and dedication.” commented Sefcik. “Staying one step ahead of the industry takes creativity, inspiration, and determination. We are honored to receive this prestigious award from such an esteemed organziation.”
