Vancouver, BC—June 11, 2018—iQmetrix was recognized for our philanthropic efforts as the recipient of the Community Engagement award at this year's Technology Impact Awards (TIAs).
The BC Tech Association (BC Tech) hosts the TIAs annually, and this event has become the longest-running and largest technology awards program in British Columbia. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Technology Impact Awards and a quarter-century of celebrating excellence and innovation in BC's Tech Sector.
President and CEO of BC Tech, Jill Tipping, said that “this year we had an incredible group of finalists who impressed the judges with the quality and diversity of their achievements. From law to natural resource management to retail, this year’s winners demonstrate that technological advancement is the bedrock for industry success and positive social change. We congratulate all the winners and finalists on their contributions towards building a strong, vibrant future for BC and the world we share.” Tipping goes on to mention that “each year we are blown away by the accomplishments in our growing community, and the visionary companies and individuals who are paving the way forward in tech."
The 2018 TIAs was a memorable one for the iQmetrix team, having been given the Community Engagement award. This recognition is given to a company that has a positive impact on the BC community in which they, live, work, and play. The recipient likely balances charitable giving with employee volunteer hours, and corporate social responsibility is in the company's corporate DNA.
"We are absolutely honored and incredibly shocked to win this award among so many other incredible nominees," said Krystal Ho, iQmetrix Corporate Relationship Manager. "At iQmetrix, community is one of our six core values and it is something we look for in everything we do—we look for it especially in every individual as something they should embody as we decide who we bring onto our team." Ho continues, saying that "supporting and building community is not a competition but something that unites us all across the globe; we want to use this recognition as an opportunity to encourage all of our other industry peers to get more involved! If you're not sure where to start locally, The BC Tech Collective supported by BCTIA is an awesome avenue, uniting us all to do good together. We are one community and together we can do much more. Thank you so much for recognizing iQmetrix efforts and congratulations to all the awesome nominees for their ongoing impact."
