LEPS honoured as one of top environmental employers

Langley non-profit foundation recognized with Canada-wide award

Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS) has been recognized as one of Canada’s top Environmental Employers of the Year.

LEPS was one of five winners from across the country honoured.

The awards, which are presented by Environmental Careers Organization (ECO) Canada, recognize excellence in human resources practices from employers who operate within Canada’s environment industry.

“We want to celebrate human resource achievements in an industry that continues to expand with high expectations of both companies and employers,” said Grant Trump, president of ECO Canada.

“The awards provide companies the opportunity to engage their staff and gain vital feedback on (human resource) practices.

“This contributes greatly to the continued growth and vitality of Canada’s environmental industry.”

The top honours are based on the results of a company employee satisfaction survey that is administered and analyzed by ECO Canada. A committee of HR professionals then evaluates both the organization’s practices and employee satisfaction to distinguish the winners.
