Now that Canada’s top 100 Employers is out, it’s only a matter of time before the provincial lists follow suit. And the wait is officially over for this year’s list of the best employers in BC, which was just released on Tuesday, February 14th. Whether you’re seeking a new job or just curious about who made the cut, this list is for you.
The 2023 winners were announced by Mediacorp Canada Inc., which organizes both the national and provincial competitions.
According to the report, employers are graded on the same eight criteria as the national competition:
- Physical Workplace
- Work Atmosphere & Social
- Health, Financial & Family Benefits
- Vacation & Time Off
- Employee Communications
- Performance Management
- Training & Skills Development
- Community Involvement
“Without the daily interaction that comes from being around your colleagues in person, employees can feel isolated from the community that organically forms in a workplace,” says Richard Yerema, executive editor of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. “Winning employers foster that connection by ensuring their employees are seen and heard, particularly when it comes to thanking their people for hard work or a job well done.”
So in an “exceptionally tight labour market” with intense recruitment competition, these companies stand out for their work-life balance, benefits, and employee recognition.
