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 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.
Well, Movember 2010 has come to a conclusion for the iQmetrix Moustache Alliance, and this has been our greatest year yet. Here are the last week's highlights:
We're coming into the home stretch for Movember 2010 at iQmetrix, and it's been a great one. Our company team has raised $3,133 as of this morning, putting us 680th overall in Canada as a team. Iain is still rocking the lead at $630, with Bill S. in second with $400.
Movember Week 2 has been a busy one for all the participating offices, and a great one for the iQmetrix Moustache Alliance. We're now at 48 participants, and have raised over $2,400, placing us #717 overall in Canada. Iain is still leading the pack with $630 raised.
Movember is off to a great start this year at iQ. We've got 40 participants signed up, which is almost 3x the amount we had the first year! I'm very excited and impressed by all the team members who have stepped up to raise money for Prostate Cancer. It's the end of Week 1 and we've already raised $1340, only $660 short of last year's total for the whole month!
