Congratulations to the Occidental

Hiring two employees with disabilities is recognized

Occidental employees Richard Rossignol

Dengarry Professional Services would like to congratulate the Occidental – Quesnel’s music venue for creating a diverse workforce. This has been shown through their commitment in hiring an individual with developmental disabilities.

The business is being rewarded with “Diversity @ Work” stickers to place on their door.  The Occidental recognizes the value of a diverse workforce and the contributions people with developmental disabilities can give to the workplace and the community.

BC EmployNet has initiated the window sticker program across B.C. to recognize employers who have shown their belief in diversity in the workplace by hiring a capable individual who also happens to have a disability.

Many people with developmental disabilities are eager to be employed, want to earn an income, be a contributing member to their community and valued in their jobs. Real work for real pay enhances independence, financial security and fosters a sense of belonging.

Part of the goal of recognizing businesses that demonstrate their belief in a diverse workplace is to inform consumers who may in turn choose to use their purchasing power to support such businesses.

So, again, we are pleased to congratulate and recognize the Occidental for their efforts and leadership in this area. If you have any questions about the Diversity @ Work program, call Stephanie Pomeroy or Dawn Cameron, 250-992-7900 ext.6.
