Disability Alliance BC seeks nominations for "Outstanding Employer of the Year Award" - Deadline Feb 27!

Nominations are now open for Disability Alliance BC’s (DABC) 2015 annual Outstanding Employer of the Year Award. This is their second annual Award. Last year’s winners were Starbucks (1500 West 2nd) and the Progressive Intercultural Community Services Society (PICS).

If you know of an employer who goes that extra mile to ensure people with disabilities are gainfully employed, please consider making a nomination.

This Award recognizes a BC employer who has demonstrated excellence in the hiring and employing of people with disabilities. A Committee comprised of DABC Board members and staff will select the Award winner and winner of an Honourary Mention.

The names of the two employers selected by the Committee will be announced at DABC’s Swing into Spring Annual Fundraiser on April 9th 2015. The Award winner and winner of an Honourary Mention will have their names publicized in DABC’s quarterly magazine Transition, monthly e-newsletter, website, and social media. Both employers will receive a plaque commemorating their Award.

Nominations for this Award can made by:

  • An employee/past employee with a disability of a business/organization
  • A person who knows a person with a disability who would like to nominate that person’s employer. The nominator must complete the nomination with the employee.
