Movember Week 3 will be our busiest yet, with several events scheduled this week. The iQmetrix Moustache Alliance is currently sitting at $1908 total collected for Movember, a big thank you to everyone who's donated and collected money so far.
iQmetrix was a proud Silver Sponsor of We Day Vancouver, held on Thursday, Oct. 13 at Rogers Arena. iQmetrix staff volunteered at We Day Vancouver as well as at We Day Winnipeg, Nov. 23, helping out with the Honored Guest and Seating Teams.
iQmetrix just finished up a company-wide training program available to all employees. It was called Authentic Leadership. It consisted of a one-day session, customized for iQmetrix and delivered by Bob Hornsberger of Whole Person Training & Consulting of Regina. Over 140 employees in four offices (and a few visitors from our satellite locations) took the training. Perhaps we shouldn’t say “finished,” though. We should say “started.” It felt more like a beginning.
If you're like most of the locals working at the iQmetrix Vancouver office, you've probably heard the stories from all the Regina peeps of the delicious and legendary PIZZA that resides in their hometown. Something about the crust being sweeter, thicker, and fluffier? The toppings are apparently incredible, the sauce is just "different," and when you ask for specifics, the response that you always seem to get is, "You just gotta try it."
iQ culture is important. Very important. We know it’s fundamental to our corporate success and, more importantly, to make work fun.
What is iQmetrix?
There are a number of different clues you can look at to learn about iQmetrix. You can look at our industry-leading and boundary pushing products like our cell phone store POS, RQ, to know we’re committed to excellence. You can look at our track record of helping clients succeed to know we’re committed to results. You can look at our stated purpose and our values to know that we’re an organization that holds itself to a high standard, both as a community member and as an organization. You can take a look at measures of our growth and employee surveys to know we’re operating at a high level of effectiveness.
A number of employees from the iQmetrix Vancouver office volunteered at the CBC Vancouver broadcast headquarters on Friday, Dec. 3, answering phones and accepting donations for British Columbia Food Banks. The fundraising drive surpassed its goal of $400,000 to help the Food Banks this holiday season.
I had the privilege of attending TEDxVancouver 2010, held at the Kay Meek Centre in West Vancouver on Saturday (Nov. 27). I'd seen TEDTalks online, so I had an idea of what to expect. What I attended was everything I expected and a lot more.
