"The time is always right to do what is right" - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr
Today we are humbled and thrilled to announce that we were awarded the "Inclusive Employer Award" at the annual Chilliwack Business Excellence Awards on Saturday!
As our aim in business is to develop people and leaders towards excellence, we strive to include people from all walks of life. For many years we have partnered with The RISE (Real Integration through Supportive Employment) program through the Chilliwack Society for Community Living. We've had a few different men work with us through this program. Corey Bennet has just completed 10 years working at Denbow through RISE! Corey brightens everyone's day with his cheery hello and stories of his activities. We are glad you choose to be on our Denbow team, Corey!
