For the 15th year in a row, a project by Mediacorp that aims to spotlight the best of the best when it comes to where to work in BC – and across Canada – has released its list of Top Employers: a “special designation that recognizes employers in the province that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.”

Employers that made the list were recognized on a number of points including:

  • Physical Workplace;
  • Work Atmosphere and Social;
  • Health, Financial and Family Benefits;
  • Vacation and Time Off;
  • Employee Communications;
  • Performance Management;
  • Training and Skills Development;
  • Community Involvement.

Employers were also compared to other organizations in their field to determine “which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.”

The annual competition is open to any employer with its head office in British Columbia; employers of any size may apply, whether private- or public-sector.

“Employers in British Columbia are stepping up their efforts to improve their workplaces and human resource policies,” says Richard Yerema, Managing Editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project.

“British Columbia continues to have the lowest unemployment rate in Canada, which is pushing more organizations to improve their workplaces and create progressive HR policies. It’s difficult to retain and attract talented employees in BC right now if an employer doesn’t pay attention to these things.”

The top employers for 2020 in BC this year are:
