Westerra Equipment, Williams Machinery, and Wesgroup Equipment are proud to kick off our two-week campaign to support #PinkShirtDay on February 22, 2017.
What is Pink Shirt Day? Pink Shirt Day is an annual anti-bullying campaign to take a stand against bullying and provides a great opportunity for us to reinforce our commitment to provide a safe and respectful workplace. Bullying goes far beyond the schoolyard. It is experienced at workplaces, homes, and over the internet. As all children and students should feel safe at home, school, and in their community – employees should feel the same at their workplace. Companies are recognizing the growing trend of workplace and internet bullying, which affects the organizations’ moral and culture, increase in turn-over, short-term and long-term disability leave, employee productivity and retention.
Over the next two weeks our stores in Abbotsford, Kamloops, Kelowna, Surrey, Vernon, and the Wesgroup Corporate staff are fundraising by selling bracelets, buttons, and taking Pink Shirt selfies. Proceeds from the sale of our pins & bracelets are going to the CKNW Orphans Fund in support of anti-bullying programs. Stop by our branches in Abbotsford, Kamloops, Kelowna, Surrey, and Vernon and join us to take a stand against bullying.
