Another Cranbrook business has been recognized for supporting diversity in the workplace. This month it is JJ’s Laundry Depot.

The acknowledgement comes from Cranbrook Society for Community Living’s (CSCL) Employment Options Team by way of a Diversity @ Work sticker.

The Employment Options Team presented the sticker to Joanne Wannop and her crew at JJ’s Laundry Depot on Wednesday, May 6.

JJ’s Laundry has 18 employees, three of which are part of the CSCL program.

The Diversity @ Work sticker is awarded after an employer has employed an individual with a developmental disability for a minimum of three months.

The sticker, which is displayed in the window, encourages the community to patronize businesses that participate in diversification.

The BC EmployNet team, along with the Provincial Networking Group, developed the program to recognize employers who support a diverse workplace.

BC EmployNet is a unified network committed advancing employment support practices.

The Provincial Networking Group Inc works to address social services needs in various regions across B.C.

The CSCL seeks to enrich the quality of life for individuals with developmental disabilities.
