The Revelstoke Early Childhood Development Committee (RECDC) is pleased to announce that the call for nominations for the Seventh Annual Revelstoke Family Friendly Business and Family Friendly Workplace Awards are now open. Nomination forms are available at the Early Years Information Office (Room 120-1001 Mackenzie Ave), Revelstoke Child Care Society or use the online form.
Items a family may consider in selecting a family friendly business might include the environment, layout and amenities, public washroom with a change table (in Mom’s AND Dad’s washroom), space to rest or breastfeed, play area with books or clean quiet toys, and access for strollers.
A family friendly workplace is one where employees feel supported in meeting both their work and family commitments. A family friendly workplace may have policies that enable workers to balance their responsibilities, may offer flexible schedules, parental leave or resources and support. A family friendly employer understands the impact family responsibilities have on their employees.
The deadline for nominations is Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2018 at 4p.m.
Nominees will be announced on the Revelstoke Early Years Centre Facebook page on Friday, Feb. 9. Winners will be announced on the Revelstoke Early Years Centre Facebook page on BC’s Family Day 2018 (Feb. 12).
