A new Surrey Board of Trade awards program is looking to showcase workplaces that support their employees’ family responsibilities.

The Child and Family Friendly Workplace Awards are to be presented Thursday, Feb. 2 at the 2012 Economic Forecast Lunch at Eaglequest Golf Course.

Surrey workplaces from all sectors – private, public and non-profit – are eligible. Awards are to be presented in three categories: small workplace (less than 50 employees); medium workplace (50-250 employees); and large workplace (more than 250 employees). Nominees must “show that they are making an effort to support employees to harmonize the demands of their work and family roles and responsibilities.”

The deadline to nominate a workplace is Friday, Jan. 20.

Recipients will be determined by a team comprised of members from both SBOT and the Surrey-White Rock Children’s Partnership.

For more information or to nominate a workplace, visit www.businessinsurrey.com/child-and-family-friendly-work, email Anita Huberman at anita@businessinsurrey.com or call 604-634-0342.
