VANCOUVER, British Columbia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#bctopemployers—iQmetrix, North America’s only provider of Interconnected Commerce solutions for the telecom retail industry, has once again been listed in the annual BC’s Top Employers rankings, revealed today and also announced in the Vancouver Sun.
iQmetrix has repeatedly been honored in this awards category due to its extraordinary working culture, its focus on self-management and autonomy, its charitable initiatives, and its extensive range of employee benefits that include comprehensive healthcare coverage, trusted “take-what-you-need” vacation leave, and trusted sick days.
Richard Yerema, Executive Editor of the annual Canada’s Top 100 Employers project, which runs both the nationwide recognition program and the province-specific rankings, pointed out that creating an exceptional workplace is a sound investment for any company. “There’s a dated assumption that meaningful work comes at a cost,” he said. “Caring for your people isn’t counter to running a successful organization, it’s key. And what better proposition to attract talented individuals than to offer progressive benefits along with the ability to have a positive impact on the broader community.”
“Many of this year’s winners are keenly aware that at the root of their success as organizations is the wellbeing of their employees,” added Kristina Leung, Managing Editor of the annual Canada’s Top 100 Employers. “Whether it’s enhancing coverage for mental health care or increasing paid time off to enable employees to spend more time with loved ones, this year’s winners understand that taking care of employees is a central part of every decision their organizations make.”
Now in its 19th year, BC’s Top Employers is a special designation of Canada’s Top Employers, a national awards program operated by Mediacorp, which recognizes employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. All companies in Canada are eligible to enter, and the results are divided by provincial and specialty rankings, in addition to the overall nationwide top 100 listing.
Employers are evaluated on eight criteria, which have remained consistent since the project’s inception. These criteria are:
- work atmosphere and social;
- health, financial, and family benefits;
- vacation and time off;
- employee communications;
- performance management;
- training and skills development;
- and community involvement.
Marni Aubichon, Co-Lead of People and Culture at iQmetrix, said, “At iQmetrix, we’re extremely proud of our multiple-award-winning workplace culture, which is based on self-management principles that allow every employee to bring their authentic selves to their roles and thrive in their careers.
