Dengarry Professional Services would like to congratulate Petro Canada, Dollarama and Best Western Tower Inn 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. Petro Canada, Dollarama and The Best Western Tower Inn 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 BC 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 for their efforts of Petro Canada, Dollarama and The Best Western Tower Inn in this area. If you have any questions about the Diversity @ Work program, please call Stephanie Pomeroy @ 250-992-7900 ext.6.
