The Greater Moncton Chamber of Commerce will honour local businesses that have shown leadership in hiring international newcomers to the region at this year’s 31st annual Greater Moncton Business Excellence Awards, to be presented Oct. 26 at the Delta Beausejour Hotel.
The GMCC will introduce a new award this year – the Inclusive Hiring Award – to be presented to a local business or organization that has hired newcomers and helped to integrate them into our community.
The award will be sponsored by the City of Moncton.
The Inclusive Hiring Award will go to a business that has demonstrated leadership in hiring newcomers, and giving them the necessary training, wages and support to successfully transition to the local workforce. The criteria will also include how organizations have helped immigrants and their families in other ways – outside the workplace – to integrate into the community.
Nominations for the Inclusive Hiring Award are now open and can be made by clicking HERE, emailing email@example.com. Deadline is Tuesday, Aug. 30. Like the nine other Business Excellence Awards to be presented on Oct. 26, a short-list of finalists will be selected and the winner determined by a panel of independent judges.
Awards will also be presented in the following categories: Business Excellence, Business Excellence (Small and Medium Enterprise), Emerging Business, Marketing, Innovation, Community Service, Environmental Excellence, Newcomer Entrepreneur and Young Entrepreneur. A People’s Choice Award will be presented based on an online vote by the public.
Tickets for the awards gala can be purchased by table or individually by clicking HERE, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (506) 857-2883.
