Our featured Employer of Excellence for the month of May is the Halifax Stanfield International Airport! Thank you HSIA for your participation in our groundbreaking program. Your interest in building a strong, diverse workplace that includes people with disabilities means that you share our vision of an inclusive, healthy community to which all people belong and contribute.
About the Employer of Excellence program:
The Employer of Excellence program is a great opportunity for employers to engage communities, represent their core values and gain recognition for a commitment to diversity and inclusiveness. Your participation allows you to give something of value back to the community while gaining something even more valuable in return – a workplace culture that is healthy, positive and ahead of the curve.
