How the winners are determined

The Best Companies to Work for in B.C. is an annual competition hosted by BCBusiness magazine and our partners at Mindfield RPO Group Inc. Any B.C.-based company with more than 25 employees, including public-sector and non-profit organizations, can participate.

Companies nominate themselves by filling out an online registration form at

Once a company has registered, the CEO or another senior representative of the company will be asked to fill out a questionnaire describing company practices. The company will also be asked to administer an anonymous online employee survey. Mindfield Group derives numerical scores from the data collected in the executive questionnaire and the employee survey to determine the winners. The executive questionnaire counts for 20 per cent of the total score, employee responses count for 70 per cent and employee participation rate accounts for 10 per cent.

Winners are announced at a gala event in November and are featured in the December issue of BCBusiness. ■
