Enabling Change.

Supporting disability inclusion goes beyond usual measures. When employees feel supported and included, they're more likely to talk about their disabilities, which increases loyalty, retention, and morale. Each year, the Pledge to Measure encourages leaders to create a workplace where all staff can succeed in a safe, inclusive environment, driving growth for the business and the community of people it supports.

"For a disability peer-focused community service organization this was a fairly straightforward process.

As an organization serving people with disabilities, it is important for our workforce to reflect the people we serve. As such, we take pride in the fact that well over fifty percent of our staff are people with lived experience of the disabilities of those we serve. With this comes a responsibility to have staff policies and programs in place that support successful employment of people with disabilities, all of which support safe disclosure of disabilities by staff members."

“Small Business BC is honoured to once again participate in the annual Pledge to Measure and be part of the growing list of businesses committed to hiring people and improving representation of persons who identify with a disability.

Small businesses account for 98% of all businesses in BC and employ over 1.1 million people. With one-in-five Canadians identifying with at least one disability, that translates to more than 200,000 folks in BC who work for a small business, and they all deserve to be counted!"
