EMBERS Wins Award of Excellence!
We are so excited to announce EMBERS has won a City of Vancouver Award of Excellence for all our hard-work in contributing to a Healthy City For All!
Our very own Founder & CEO Marcia was at the ceremony on July 6 with Director of Business Development Doug Aason to receive the award for EMBERS. Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson was on hand at the ceremony to present the award himself.
This year marks the second installment of the now-Annual Awards ceremony by the City of Vancouver that recognizes organizations and individuals across 6 categories for contributing to a better city.
EMBERS Staffing Solutions was nominated for the award under the Healthy City for All category for contributing to the overall health of Vancouverites for providing meaningful and low-barrier work opportunities to those who need it most. EMBERS Staffing Solutions was specifically recognized for helping over 870 people find work in 2014 and paying out over $3 million in wages and benefits to our workers. By providing training and equipment to our workers, EMBERS removes barriers that many people face when trying to enter or re-enter the workforce.
We are not only honoured to be recognized by the City of Vancouver for all our hard work, but also very humbled by all the other inspiring winners from the 2015 Awards of Excellence!
