CALGARY, Jan. 17 /CNW/ - Axia NetMedia Corporation ("Axia") is proud to
announce that it has been named Canada's Best Small and Medium Employer in a
nationwide study involving more than 70 companies.
The study was a partnership between the Queen's Centre for Business
Venturing at Queen's School of Business, international human resources
consultants Hewitt Associates and the Globe & Mail, which reported on the
results on January 16, 2008. The ranking is based on surveys completed last
spring in which employees were asked to rate their company on categories such
as motivation, benefits, employee recognition, career development
opportunities and corporate values. More than 85 percent of Axia employees
participated in the survey.
"We have a team of people who are imaginative, highly skilled and excited
by what they do," said Axia Chairman and CEO Art Price. "To be successful, a
high-performing company has to strive for excellence for its customers,
shareholders and employees. Our team approach and our employees' sharing of
intellectual capital and knowledge is key to the success of our business."
President Geoff Thompson said, "Our goal is to create powerful,
customer-driven solutions and to accomplish that, we have created a
collaborative, team-oriented environment that Axians believe makes this a
great company to work for. We are delighted this nationwide study has
recognized Axia and the contributions of our teams."
