We are very proud to announce that we have been named one of BC's Top Employers in the province for the second consecutive year!
I had a chance to talk to Sandra Fulton, our Director of Human Resources, who is proud of the care and consideration that we promote as hearing health industry leaders.
"I'm fortunate to be part of an organization that values its staff and encourages them to expand their skills through training, independent thinking and innovation. Our hearing professionals and employees at all levels demonstrate a passion and dedication for hearing health that ensures our clients stay connected to their friends, family and the sounds that bring them joy."
BC's Top Employers is an annual competition recognizing employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. Human resource professionals acknowledge that a healthy workplace reduces absenteeism and job stress, which in turn makes it easier to attract and retain qualified employees.
We were recognized by BC's Top Employers for employment best practices (click here) including: work-life balance incentives, maternity and parental leave top-up payments, transition options for older and retiring workers, RRSP matching, signing and referral bonuses, and industry leading incentive programs.
The full list of top employers will appear in the Vancouver Sun, February 6, 2013. Click here to see the list.
