Congrats to Super Save Gas

Super Save Gas has chosen diversity in their workplace by hiring someone with developmental disabilities.

Super Save Gas employee Steven Ireland

Work B.C. and Dengarry Professional Services would like to congratulate Super Save Gas for creating a diverse workforce.  This has been shown through their commitment in hiring individuals with developmental disabilities.

The businesses are being rewarded with “Diversity @ Work” Stickers to place in their windows.

Super Save Gas recognizes the value of a diverse workforce and the contributions people with developmental disabilities can give to the workplace and the community.

B.C. 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,  congratulations to Super Save Gas.  If you have any questions about the Diversity @ Work program, call Rosie Dunn @ 250-992-7691 or stop by Work BC.
