Working Moms Applaud Progressive Employers of Canada List


Mom-friendly workplaces recognized for offering flexibility, supportive leadership and progressive programs

Vancouver, Canada, June 05, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Working moms across Canada are applauding the following "mom-friendly" employers selected for the second annual 2010 Progressive Employers of Canada List. The list, featuring diverse companies from a variety of industries, recognizes employers that offer flexibility, supportive leadership and progressive programs for working parents and their families.

Connect Moms, momcafe and Lisa Martin International (founder of the Briefcase Moms Program), initiated the Progressive Employers of Canada List in 2009 after conducting a nationwide survey 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. Detailed corporate profiles highlighting each company's progressive work environment are available at www.progressiveemployers.com.

"The dialogue has become much richer this past year," said list co-founder Lisa Martin of Lisa Martin International. "we held our inaugural Progressive Ideas Exchange with many of the Lower Mainland companies on the 2009 list, which provided a forum for these employers to share successes and brainstorm new initiatives. It's a starting point for sharing ideas on how to make progressive change in the workplace."
