Now in its 15th year, BC’s Top Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. This elite designation recognizes BC employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.
Based in Vancouver, ThoughtFarmer’s intranet software makes work better by providing a platform that surfaces employee knowledge, increases collaboration, and improves employee communication.
For ThoughtFarmer President Darren Gibbons, the link between intranets and healthy workplaces is no coincidence.
“Today’s intranets solve real organizational problems by keeping knowledge centralized and accessible, and providing a shared community for employees to ask questions, share comments, and contribute to resolving other employee problems,” said Darren. “An increase of remote workers and flexible work schedules has further created a demand for collaboration technology that is accessible anywhere, at any time, and from any device.”
Employers on this list of BC’s Top Employers were recognized on numerous criteria 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.
As demonstrated by these winning employers, focusing on corporate culture, people, and communication goes a long way in creating a healthy and desirable workplace. Award winning employers further benefit by gaining an edge in recruiting and retaining future talent—an ongoing struggle for many organizations.
