Congratulations to 25+ based in BC winners of 2013 Best Diversity Employers award. These companies competed with 3,250 employers applied for this year’s competition. BMO Financial group sponsored the award (did not participate in the competition). For all short-listed employer candidates, their diversity practices and policies were reviewed and the winners were selected by editors at Mediacorp, an agency conducting the competition. According to Mediacorp:

“Now entering its seventh year, Canada’s Best Diversity Employers recognizes employers across Canada that have exceptional workplace diversity and inclusiveness programs. This competition examines a range of diversity initiatives, including programs for five major employee groups: (a) Women; (b) Members of visible minorities; (c) Persons with disabilities; (d) Aboriginal peoples; and (e) Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered/Transsexual (LGBT) peoples. This competition replaced our two annual rankings of the top employers for women and visible minorities, which we published as an appendix to our book between 2002 and 2007, when the present competition was launched.”
