Becomes only Alberta company to make Canada's top-50 BSME list five years in a row
CALGARY, Nov. 7, 2013 /CNW/ - Vista Projects Limited (Vista), a privately-owned, technical engineering firm based in Calgary, is honoured to be recognized today as a top-50 Best Small and Medium Employer (BSME) in Canada for 2014.
This year marks the tenth anniversary of the BSME study. Vista has been named to the top-50 list for five consecutive years - each year it has participated in the study - and is the only Alberta-based company, as well as the only oil and gas business, to receive such recognition.
"For over 28 years, we've built our company around putting people first," says Richard Campbell, Vista's Chief Operating Officer. "Vista's consistent BSME recognition is evidence of a highly engaged workforce and our commitment to building a people-focused organization. We're always looking for new ways to improve and our people play a big part in that process."
This national award program recognizes top employers with between 50 and 399 employees. More than 200 Canadian organizations participated in the 2014 study. The rankings are determined by the results of anonymous employee surveys and an assessment of organizational practices from the leadership team. Study partners include Queen's School of Business, Queen's Centre for Business Venturing and AON Hewitt.
"Making the top-50 list five years in a row is a great achievement for Vista," says Campbell. "But our primary reason for participating in the BSME survey has always been the data that we get back. It's very important for our people to be involved in our success. We believe people perform at their best when they're engaged in our business. This leads to quality results for our clients and increased opportunities for everyone. The BSME survey is a key to our people playing a role in shaping Vista's future."
