VANCOUVER, BC – Feb. 8, 2012 – iQmetrix is pleased to announce it has ranked 10th among the 50 Best Small & Medium Employers in Canada for 2012, up from 24th in 2011, according to an annual study conducted by the Queen’s University School of Business and Aon Hewitt.
Queen’s defines Small & Medium Employers as organizations with 50 to 399 permanent employees. The study measures employee engagement, based on employees’ degree of intellectual and emotional commitment to their workplace.
“We’re honoured to be included on the list again this year. It’s great to know that we’ve improved over time, but what’s even more important is how this study helps us identify the engagement and satisfaction levels of our employees,” says Christopher Krywulak, iQmetrix’s President and CEO.
The list of 50 Best Small & Medium Employers in Canada was published in PROFIT Magazine today. The magazine also included a profile on iQmetrix, identifying it as one of three companies that have succeeded in building employee engagement. In the past year, iQmetrix made efforts to improve communication – more specifically, to provide staff with added context so they can make their own decisions. Krywulak believes this approach has helped boost employee engagement.
“We want to ensure our employees enjoy coming to work every day, that they’re fulfilled by the work they do, and that they can maintain a satisfying work-life balance,” he adds. “Moving up in the list this year tells us we’re heading in the right direction.”
