Boeing Canada-AeroInfo Named One of British Columbia’s Top Employers
February 06, 2016
Richmond, B.C. – Boeing Canada-AeroInfo is proud to announce that, for the second year in a row, we’ve been selected as one of British Columbia’s Top Employers by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. This prestigious recognition is based on an annual competition among organizations in the province of B.C. that offer exceptional places to work.
Employers are evaluated on wide-ranging criteria, including physical workplace and work atmosphere, benefits, vacation and leave policies, employee communication, performance management, training and skills development and community involvement.
Boeing Canada-AeroInfo was selected as a BC Top Employer based on its career development programs, HR initiatives, and outstanding benefits, including company-paid contributions to retirement savings and progressive family-friendly policies.
Specifically cited were a variety of financial benefits, including year-end bonuses, company RSP contributions, parental leave top-up payments (to 90% of salary for 27 weeks), in-vitro fertilization subsidy (to $15,000), recreational and fitness subsidy ($600 per annum), in-house and online training programs, and professional accreditation and tuition subsidies. Also noted were many workplace amenities, great career opportunities (in-house and worldwide through The Boeing Company), and a robust career-management and mentoring program.
Bob Cantwell, CEO and President, is honored by the recognition. He highlights the importance that the job itself offers as an attraction for employees. “The things we build here are pretty cool and impactful. The systems we develop are used by hundreds of airlines every day. If the systems we build didn’t work, the airlines wouldn’t be able to fly.”
HR Director, Cindy Theriault, also highlights the exciting nature of the work opportunities offered to employees: “The secret to our success is we have the creative minds and technical capability to innovate and create world-changing programs. Vancouver is well-known for its technical talent and workplace expectations are high. Every year, we strive to ensure we are offering employees truly competitive and compelling benefits – and a great place to work.”
“We try to make sure that every employee has the support they need to be successful and rewarded by their contributions, whether through our extensive family-friendly benefits package or engagement programs that involve everyone in the company’s success.”
Boeing Canada-AeroInfo is proud to share its success with other forward-thinking and employee-focused organizations throughout British Columbia.
