8 BC Tech Companies Named to Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers List for 2015Tuesday, March 10, 2015
Vancouver, BC, March 10, 2015--(T-Net)--If you thought that working at a smaller organization meant getting by with fewer workplace benefits and lower pay, you probably haven't read about Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers.
The 2015 winners were announced this morning, showcasing the nation's most innovative smaller employers, including 8 BC technology companies, which were included in this year's list of Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers
“As Vancouver's fourth largest headquartered software company, it's an honour to receive this distinction and we are proud of our 27-year history helping to make Vancouver the major technology hub that it is today,” said
Laurie Schultz, President and CEO of ACL in a related press release. “One of the benefits of our size is the ability to be flexible and nimble, not just in disruptive product development but also in our approach to attracting, retaining and mobilizing top talent.”
"Aquatic Informatics has nearly doubled in size since Mediacorp first recognized us for offering one of the best workplaces in our industry. During this time of rapid growth, fostering our exceptional company culture has remained a top priority. We are thrilled to win this award for the second year in a row," shared Ed Quilty, President and CEO at Aquatic Informatics. "The reasons Aquatic Informatics is one of the best places to work are perhaps best described by our employees."
"These employers are showing they can compete with larger companies when it comes to creating progressive workplace benefits and forward-thinking HR policies," says Richard Yerema, Managing Editor of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp Canada Inc. "The competition provides us with an opportunity to write about some very dynamic and interesting employers - these small and medium employers (SMEs) are often the workplace innovators when it comes to trying-out new HR and recruitment strategies."
Now entering its third year, Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers recognizes SMEs with exceptional workplaces and forward-thinking human resource policies.
Employers are evaluated on the same eight criteria as the larger Canada's Top 100 Employers project: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. To determine eligibility, the Top 100 editors follow the SME definition used by Statistics Canada, limiting the competition to private-sector companies with under 500 employees.
"Small and medium enterprises play a very significant role in Canada's economy," says Tony Meehan, Publisher at Mediacorp. More than 90% of Canadians who work in the private-sector are employed by SMEs, which were responsible for three-quarters of new jobs created in Canada in the past decade. "It's important for Canadians to learn what the most innovative SME offer and to realize that smaller employers are capable of doing remarkable things for their employees."
This year's Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers were announced in a special magazine in The Globe and Mail this morning.
