Toronto, Ontario -- November 9, 2018 --The British Columbia Automobile Association has been named a 2019 Best Employer in Canada, becoming one of three large employers in British Columbia to earn a platinum distinction.
The news, which was announced today by Aon, recognizes BCAA with the highest status for creating and sustaining a highly engaged workforce. This year marks the ninth time in 12 years that BCAA has achieved Best Employer status and the first time BCAA has achieved the platinum designation.
"It's hard to describe how thrilled we are to be a Best Employer, but to achieve Platinum status is the ultimate," says BCAA CEO Shom Sen. "Each and every one of us at BCAA come to work with passion and purpose and we deeply believe in creating a culture that allows us to give our Members the best service imaginable. We'll celebrate, and continue to find new ways to make BCAA the best job ever for every employee."
The designation is based on a comprehensive study involving BCAA's 1,300 employees across British Columbia, measuring their level of engagement with the organization and comparing these scores against nearly 700 companies across Canada.
BCAA was able to achieve the platinum status by being rated in the top quartile for engagement; employer brand and leadership; and in the top third for performance culture.
Earlier this year BCAA was awarded the YMCA Vancouver Outstanding Workplace award, along with company Sen being recognized as one of the Top CEO’s in Canada by Glass Door.
