Vancouver, BC, November 18, 2022—iQmetrix, North America’s leading telecom experience platform, has today been recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2023 in the annual editorial competition announced in the Globe & Mail.
Now in its 23rd year, Canada’s Top Employers is a national awards program, operated by Mediacorp, recognizing employers that lead their industries and offer exceptional workplaces. Companies are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. Employers across the country are evaluated by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers using eight criteria:
- Work environment
- Work atmosphere and communications
- Health and family-friendly benefits
- Community involvement
- Vacation and personal time off
- Financial benefits and compensation
- Employee engagement and performance
- Training and skills development
iQmetrix received A ratings in the first four of the above categories, and B+ in the other four. The Canada’s Top Employers judges particularly praised iQmetrix for its parental benefits and charitable focus.
Earlier this year, iQmetrix was named one of BC’s Top 50 Employers for 2022 (all company sizes), and one of Canada’s Top 100 Small and Medium Employers for 2022 in the same awards program. The company’s upgrade to its 2023 ranking in the overall list of Canada’s Top 100 Employers (all company sizes) reflects the incredible culture, great facilities, flexible work environment, and extensive benefits enjoyed by iQmetrix staff.
“Employers are trying to find their footing in unfamiliar territory,” says Richard Yerema, executive editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp. “There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach for hybrid and remote work. Agility and willingness to learn from feedback and try something new is what differentiates this year’s winners.”
Marni Aubichon, Co-Lead of People and Culture at iQmetrix, said, “At iQmetrix, we’re extremely proud of our award-winning workplace culture, which is based on self-management principles that allow every employee to bring their authentic selves to their roles and thrive in their careers. We have a team of wonderful humans — our iQers — who are united by our shared values, with a focus on diversity and inclusion. We offer a fun place to work with stunning offices, amazing company getaways, and great social events. iQmetrix also prides itself on being a learning organization, with an extensive catalog of training and development programs as well as personal coaching available to all iQers. And we’re very happy to offer staff an awesome range of benefits, including trusted vacation days, and some health insurance coverages that are fairly unusual.”
One such unusual benefit is $25,000 coverage for fertility drugs, which iQmetrix recognized as a gap in its employee health benefits and introduced in 2017. The coverage has since been used to life-changing effect by at least one iQer. Sean Anderson, Client Engagement Lead for the Canadian and Specialty Market, shared his story about how he and his wife used this benefit shortly after it was introduced, which resulted in a wonderful baby girl named Scottie. Sean said, “This benefit was awesome, and something we didn’t expect. [The coverage] was perfectly timed for us, as fertility drugs are not cheap… We’re really grateful for the support. iQmetrix is a pretty cool place to work.”
