What an exciting day! At GLBC we take great pride in the wellbeing of our staff, and it is extremely gratifying to receive awards that recognize the efforts we put in. We couldn’t be more honoured to have received the following two awards today:
Now in its 12th year, this designation recognizes the British Columbia employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.
Here are some of the reasons GLBC was selected as one of BC’s Top Employers (2017):
- GLBC offers its employees a unique head office work environment that features an onsite fitness facility, an outdoor sand volleyball court and a company dock for employees wishing to paddle their way to the Mitchell Island location
- GLBC offers employees a profit-sharing plan and celebrates the achievement of its annual profitability target through the “Big Outrageous Xtravaganza” (or BOX goal) initiative — the impressive program includes 3 additional paid days off and an all-expenses-paid vacation to a sunny destination for all employees (the most recent trip was to Las Vegas, representing just one of eight such retreats that employees have enjoyed in the past 15 years)
- Along with a profit-sharing plan, GLBC supports an enlightened policy, opening its books to employees each month — the company also helps employees plan for the longer term with retirement planning assistance and matching RSP contributions
Presented by Deloitte, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is Canada’s leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in private Canadian-owned companies.
GLBC is honoured to retain its Platinum Club status for this program – a membership that is exclusive to organizations that have been named Best Managed companies for seven years or more.
From our diverse collection of team members to our company culture initiatives to our community involvement, GLBC is dedicated to providing a welcoming atmosphere that encourages all its employees to thrive. We are thrilled to receive these two awards and look forward to continuing to stay at the top of our game for many, MANY years to come!
