We value professionalism, integrity, honesty and fairness in our relationships with our customers. Recently, the Open Door Group gave recognition to the value we place in our employees. Below is an excerpt from a letter we received in October of this year.
"Congratulations on your nomination for the 2018 UnTapped Workplace Inclusion Awards, the largest awards program in BC recognizing the outstanding achievements of BC employers and individuals who are lead diversity and inclusion in the workplace!
All our nominees will be featured on the UnTapped website and social media platforms, and in the event program, with the possibility of media interviews. The UnTapped Workplace Inclusion Awards Committee is working hard to select finalists and winners from an outstanding slate of candidates.
Our top three finalists will be announced on the UnTapped website after 6:00 pm on Nov 1, 2018. Winners will be announced at the UnTapped Gala on Nov 22, 2018 at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver."
BigHorn Security was one of 40 businesses around BC nominated under the category of WORKPLACE DIVERSITY & INCLUSION CHAMPION – BC Small Business (1-99 employees). Top three finalists were announced on November 1 and, although we did not make it to that round, we are mighty honoured to have been nominated! For a small company serving Kamloops and area, it means a lot to be recognized by a province-wide organization such as the Open Door Group.
What are the UnTapped Workplace Inclusion Awards About?
UnTapped 2018 is presented by Open Door Group, BC’s largest not-for-profit provider of employment services. Since 1976, Open Door Group has been working with hundreds of employers across BC in both urban and rural communities to connect with skilled candidates, many who come from non-traditional talent pools. Open Door Group created the UnTapped awards to give recognition to business leaders in all sectors who recruit and retain skilled talent from unique and previously "untapped" populations of candidates, including aboriginal communities, candidates with disabilities, recent immigrants, women, youth, older workers, and so on.
Employers win by tapping into these new talent pools, as they can position their businesses for growth and competitiveness in spite of current labour shortages. And unique populations of employees win, as they are recruited fairly based on their valuable workplace skills and experience.
BigHorn Security is thankful for the nomination, and we'll keep our Gala outfits handy for next year! Until then, we'll be here in Kamloops and surrounding area providing security services ranging from home checks and on-site guards to mobile patrols and event security, and more. We have served our community for many years and have many satisfied customers. Please contact us and find out how we can help with your security needs.
