Webnames.ca Has Been Recognized as a Progressive Employer by Canadian Moms
Vancouver, BC – June 1, 2009 – Webnames.ca, Canada’s original domain registrar and a one-stop convenience for the online needs of individuals, small businesses, nonprofits and corporations, is pleased to be recognized as a Progressive Employer of Canada. The list celebrates employers who offer flexibility, supportive leadership and progressive programs for working parents and their families. Webnames.ca is among a select and diverse group of companies who are being acknowledged for leading progressive change in the Canadian workplace.
Connect Moms, momcafé and Lisa Martin International (founder of the Briefcase Moms Program) initiated the 2009 Progressive Employers of Canada List after conducting a nationwide survey last year asking moms what they were looking for in a workplace of choice.
The Progressive Employers of Canada List is unique as the criteria selection was designed and developed by working moms across Canada via surveys and an open nomination process instead of a closed executive judicial committee like many other employer lists.
“We’re very pleased to be recognized as a progressive employer”, says Cybele Negris, COO. We have several employees with young children and try to be as flexible as possible. We value our employees and offer a supportive work environment.”
Webnames.ca is proud to offer its employees the following services and benefits:
- part-time or contract positions
- gradual re-entry after maternity leave
- health benefits
About the Progressive Employers of Canada List
The purpose of the 2009 Progressive Employers of Canada List is to encourage organizations to consider the value they offer employees in innovative ways and to share this information with a national network of savvy, educated, professional moms. This list is designed to enhance the dialogue between these employers and working moms and ultimately identify more supportive workplaces for women.
