Five Thompson-Okanagan businesses crack list of top 125 BC employers – Castanet

Feb 19, 2024

Five Thompson-Okanagan businesses have cracked the list of B.C.’s Top Employers for 2024.

BC Lottery Corporation, First Nations Finance Authority, Okanagan College, QHR Technologies and Tolko Industries were the only local enterprises to crack the final list of 125 companies. The promotion is co-published by the Vancouver Sun and Mediacorp Canada, which organizes the annual Canada’s Top 100 Employers project.

“There’s a dated assumption that meaningful work comes at a cost,” Canada’s Top 100 Employers executive editor Richard Yerema said in a press release. “Caring for your people isn’t counter to running a successful organization; it’s key. And what better proposition to attract talented individuals than to offer progressive benefits along with the ability to have a positive impact on the broader community.”

The companies were judged on eight criteria, including work atmosphere, benefits, employee communication and community involvement.

Okanagan College and QHR Technologies are based in Kelowna, First Nations Finance Authority is in Westbank First Nation, BC Lottery Corporation’s head office is in Kamloops, and Tolko’s home base is in Vernon.
