Becomes only Calgary-based company to make Canada's top-50 list four
years in a row
CALGARY, Dec. 5, 2012 /CNW/ - Vista Projects Limited (Vista), a
privately owned, technical engineering firm based in Calgary, Alberta,
is pleased to be named today amongst the 50 Best Small and Medium
Employers (BSME) in Canada for 2013.
Now in its 8th year, the BSME study is published annually in PROFIT
Magazine. The 2013 recognition marks the fourth consecutive year Vista
has been named to the top-50 list. Having made the list of best
employers each year it has participated in the BSME study, Vista is the
only Calgary-based company as well as the only oil & gas business to be
recognized four years running.
"This is both an honour and a mandate to continue building and improving
our company," said Vista's Chief Operating Officer, Richard Campbell.
"Vista wants to be a great place to work and we recognize that the best
way to achieve our goal is by working with our people to invest in
initiatives that make a difference. The BSME study is a very important
tool that helps Vista gather valuable feedback from our staff, allowing
us to continue being one of the best employers in Canada."
Making the BSME top-50 list is a very detailed and competitive process.
This national awards program recognizes top employers with between 50
and 399 employees.
The rankings are primarily determined by using the results from the
anonymous Employee Opinion Surveys. The evaluation process also
includes the assessment of organizational practices and perspectives
from the leadership team. This year, more than 200 organizations across
Canada participated in the study.
"Vista is proud to be a locally-owned engineering firm focused on
Western Canada's energy industry," said Campbell. "I think being
consistently recognized as a top employer is a result of our ownership
model. All our shareholders are actively involved in the day-to-day
operations of our business, working closely with Vista's people to
deliver quality results for our clients. It is an empowering
partnership for our people and one that is continuously improving."
Study partners include Queen's School of Business, Queen's Centre for
