2012 Successful You Awards - Best Employer - Finalist
by Toby Barazzuol on Wednesday Feb 22, 2012
As a company, our mission is to help other organizations recognize and celebrate the human elements of business. As you might imagine, this is also a philosophy that guides how our company operates and how we value our team. So when we're lucky enough to find ourselves on the receiving end of some recognition, it's a great reminder of why we do what we do.
Recently, we were excited to learn that Eclipse Awards had been selected as a top 5 finalist for Best Employer in the 9th Annual Successful You Awards. This recognition awards program is organized by Small Business BC and not only does it aim to help raise the profile of small businesses doing great things, it also helps to set the direction of business in BC through the companies it recognizes.
The recognition process involves a nomination, followed by a period of online voting, followed by a written submission from which the top 5 in each category are determined. Each finalist then makes a presentation to a panel of judges, with the winners being announced on awards night, February 28th.
We’re proud of the things that we’ve done to be considered as one of the top 5 employers in BC. So for our presentation we put together a list of the top 5 reasons why we feel we should be in the running for BC’s Best Employer. We used prezi for this presentation, and I have to say that I was pretty happy with what we put together. What do you think?
Sometimes it feels good to look back at some of the things we've accomplished. We're happy that we've come this far and it feels good to know that others appreciate our commitments to creating a great work environment. No matter what happens from here, we've already learned a lot about ourselves through this process. Fingers crossed!
