CBCI Telecom, Canada’s full service Telepresence, Videoconferencing & Audiovisual solutions integrator, is honored to be named among the Top 50 Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada for its 3rd year. Escalating to the 7th position from last year’s 17th rank testifies to CBCI Telecom’s continuous success. The 2011 lists of the the Best Small & Medium Employers in Canada appear in the November 8 issue of Maclean’s magazine, available on newsstands today, and the November 4 edition of La Presse.
“We are very excited by this award because we believe that the foundation of a great company begins and ends with satisfied, motivated and talented employees. This is fundamental to CBCI being in a position to deliver a positive customer experience.” said Jeff Speak, CBCI Telecom’s CEO.
“CBCI Telecom has a flex-time policy to help its employee balance their work and family life, above-average benefits, and monthly and yearly recognition programs. This Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada award reaffirms our employees’ engagement with our corporate culture.” said Richard Belitzky, CBCI Telecom’s President.
The study is conducted by the Queen’s Centre for Business Venturing, the Queen’s University School of Business and Aon Hewitt. Organizations that have operated in Canada for at least three years and have between 50 and 399 Canadian-based permanent employees are eligible to participate. Two hundred and fifty-one Canadian employers took part in the 2011 Best Employers studies. The study measures employee engagement. Organizations with high employee engagement enjoy tangible benefits, including a greater ability to attract and retain key talent.
According to Aon Hewitt’s definition, employees are engaged when they “say, stay and strive”: they speak positively about the organization to others, are committed to remaining with their current employer, and are motivated by their organizations’ leaders, managers, culture and values to go “above and beyond” to contribute to business success. The average engagement score for Best Employer organizations of all sizes was 80 per cent; the average for other organizations participating in the two studies was 59 per cent.
The primary requirement to be named a Best Employer is high “employee engagement” – a measure of how positively employees feel about their employer, how likely they are to stay, and how committed they are to doing their utmost to achieve business objectives. Participants in the Best Employers studies are required to complete three surveys: the Employee Opinion Survey, the Leadership Team Survey and the Human Resources Survey. The results of the Employee Opinion Survey make up the vast majority of a participant’s score used to determine its ranking in the study.
