Christopher Krywulak moved his software company to Vancouver from Saskatchewan last year as part of a bigger plan to expand iQmetrix’s North American share of the mobile phone retailers’ market.

One of Christopher Krywulaks employees pours a pint of beer in the office kitchen as Krywulak takes visitors on a tour of iQmetrix’s 11,000-square-foot office in Vancouver’s PricewaterhouseCoopers building.

It’s nearing 4:30 p.m. on a Thursday afternoon and the sign is not out of the ordinary. A keg is usually hooked up to a tap for employees to use at their leisure.

We give employees freedom and trust their choices. People usually make the right choices,” said Krywulak, is iQmetrix’ CEO. “[Drinking alcohol] can be good for creative aspects of the job.”
