Nominations are now open for the Inclusive Employer Awards to recognize employers who go above and beyond to create meaningful employment opportunities for adults with disabilities. Now in their third year, the awards were established through a partnership between CLBC’s Surrey Delta White Rock Community Council and local partners including the City of Surrey, Surrey Rotary Club, Milieu Family Services and Work BC.
In 2014 and 2015, local employers and non-profit agencies were honoured at an annual awards gala in the fall for their commitment to creating inclusive workplaces. This year, awards will be presented on September 29 in the following five categories:
- Micro-enterprise: has less than 10 employees
- Small Business: has 11 – 50 employees
- Medium Business: has 51 to 100 employees
- Large Business: more than 100 employees
- Non-Profit Organization
For more information, you can visit the Inclusive Employers Awards site here, and visit the “Nominate” page to submit a nomination by August 31 at 5:00pm. Nomination forms can also be printed off and submitted in person or by mail to CLBC’s Surrey office at: 2017 – 7495 132nd Street, Surrey BC V3W 1J8
