Kwantlen Polytechnic University is the only Canadian university to be named as a 2010 Progressive Employer of Canada.
The Progressive Employers of Canada List is a survey done by Connect Moms, momcafe and Lisa Martin International. It names employers across the country who offer flexible employment for women and moms with tough schedules.
“The university was recognized for its generous maternity benefits package as well as having the flexibility to accommodate employee leave of absences. The university also makes accommodations for faculty, staff and employees to move from full-time status to part-time as their parenting responsibilities demand,” said a July 8 Kwantlen press release.
Kwantlen has also received recognition as being one of B.C.’s top employers and greenest employers for 2010.
“This acknowledgement, coupled with the recognition as one of B.C.’s 2010 Top Employers and one of Canada’s 2010 Greenest Employers for 2010 clearly demonstrates Kwantlen’s commitment to be a workplace of choice for our communities of the Fraser region of British Columbia,” said Deborah Harkin, vice-president of human services for Kwantlen, in a Kwantlen press release.
