BCI Named One of Canada’s Top 100 Employers For The Second Consecutive Year

November 13, 2020

Victoria, British Columbia – BCI is honoured to be recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers again this year. The award recipients from this nationwide competition were announced today in a special feature published in the Globe and Mail together with key reasons for selection.

Being named to this list for the second consecutive year is a testament to BCI’s continued work to become a workplace of choice that attracts, retains, and promotes talented professionals. As an active in-house asset manager, BCI depends on the specialized skills and expertise of its people to successfully execute its world-class investment strategies and fulfill client needs.

“Empowering employees is everything in the highly competitive, knowledge-intensive world of investment management,” said Norine Hale, BCI’s executive vice president, human resources.

“We are thrilled that BCI’s efforts to build a culture of excellence in the continuous pursuit of sustainable success for our clients puts us among Canada’s leading employers again this year.”

Being selected for Canada’s Top 100 Employers this year also serves as acknowledgement of BCI’s unwavering commitment to the health and well-being of our employees while responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. In March, BCI took initiative to protect our workforce by transitioning almost 550 employees from our corporate offices to work remotely.

“We are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to support our employees – personally and professionally. The significant uncertainty and need to adapt quickly at the outset of the pandemic tested how we deliver a great workplace,” said Hale.

“The resilience and resourcefulness of our people throughout this challenging time is the true indication of our success.”

Employees maintained access to existing programs and benefits that could be delivered remotely, while BCI adapted and advanced new initiatives to support well-being and performance from afar. Examples include access to a new virtual healthcare services app, mental health training and expanded online professional development opportunities.

Canada’s Top 100 Employers is operated by Mediacorp Canada Inc. – the nation’s largest publisher of employment periodicals, reaching over 15 million Canadians each year. This is the 21st anniversary of the award and the second time that BCI has applied.

Applicants are evaluated by the editors using eight criteria[1] and are compared to other organizations in their field to identify those that lead their industries in offering the most forward-thinking programs and exceptional workplace cultures.
