Burnaby, BC – Hemmera is thrilled to announce that our firm has been recognized by Mediacorp Canada Inc. as one of BC’s Top 100 Employers of 2017. This annual, high-profile competition recognizes the nation’s best places to work – companies that lead their industries in attracting and retaining employees.
“We are very excited to celebrate this award for the second time,” says Paul Hemsley, Hemmera President and founder. “It is an honour to be considered a top employer in British Columbia. Most importantly, I am thankful to all of our employees across Canada for continuing to grow, learn, and live through The Hemmera Way, everyday”.
Hemmera’s unique culture is defined by The Hemmera Way — a collective way of thinking that defines our behaviours, actions, attitudes, and approach to everything we do. The Hemmera Way differentiates us from our competitors by the way we practice Hemmera’s collective values of being people-based, business focused, and values driven while delivering performance excellence to our clients and projects.
This year’s BC winners were evaluated by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers using the same eight criteria as the national competition: Physical Workplace; Work Atmosphere and Social; Health, Financial and Family Benefits; Vacation and Time Off; Employee Communications; Performance Management; Training and Skills Development; and Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which firm offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. Some of the reasons why Hemmera was selected as a BC Top Employer include: external and internal training opportunities, flexible work environment, vacation and time-off policies, high number of social events throughout the year, and amazing staff.
Hemmera is a boutique environmental consultancy that has been making a difference across Canada since 1994. The firm’s highly respected multi-disciplinary professionals are leaders in environmental and social sciences and engineering; they know the regulatory environment and understand the related business implications. Hemmera provides quality services to industry, First Nations, and government. The firm has primary office locations in Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary, Whitehorse, and Toronto.
