Congratulations Bethel Church

Bethel Church has added a new staff member to their team and is pleased to support diversity in the workplace

Patrick Kriese

Dengarry Professional Services would like to congratulate Bethel Church for creating a diverse workforce. This has been shown through their commitment in hiring an individual with developmental disabilities.

The organization is being rewarded with “Diversity @ Work” Stickers to place on their door.  Bethel Church 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 and organizations that demonstrate their belief in a diverse workplace is to inform the public who may in turn choose to support such businesses and organizations. So, again, we are pleased to congratulate and recognize Bethel Church for their efforts and leadership in this area.  If you have any questions about the “Diversity @ Work” program, please call Stephanie Pomeroy at 250-992-7900 ext.6.
