Forbes released its Canada’s Best Employers 2017 list, and 11 BC Businesses have made the top 100.
The full list includes 300 employers from across the country. Forbes collected its data in September, by asking 8,000 Canadian employees working for large firms or institutions to rate their willingness to recommend their own companies on a scale of 1 to 10. The employees were surveyed anonymously through several online access panels.
Respondents were also asked to name good or bad employers in sectors or industries besides their own, according to Forbes. The top employers on the list represent 25 different industries in Canada.
While Ontario companies dominated the list, BC did have some notable rankings. Mountain Equipment Co-op is BC’s top employer, coming in at eighth place, and BC Hydro came in at 24th.
