Canada’s Top Employers picks Canfor as one of the best in B.C.

Canfor's ability to attract and retain talented people is one of the most important factors to ensure its future success

Canfor has been named one of B.C.’s Top Employers for the fourth year in a row.

“Thank you to the Canada’s Top Employers organization for their recognition,” said Tracey Arnish, Canfor senior vice-president for people and culture.

“Even more importantly, I thank our dedicated employees. We are one of the largest employers on the list of companies and our selection is clearly based on the strength and contributions of everyone at the company,” she added.

Writing on on the company’s World of Wood blog, Arnish noted that, as B.C.’s biggest forestry company, Canfor’s ability to attract and retain talented people is one of the most important factors to ensure its future success.

“Some of the reasons why Canfor was selected includes the support we provide for life after work and retirement planning, and for our commitment to lifelong learning through internships, in-house apprenticeships, mentoring, subsidies for professional accreditation and other educational opportunities,” the Canfor vice-president said.

“We are very proud of our recent launch of Canfor College, a training and development framework that provides our employees with access to opportunities to further develop their skills,” she said.

Arnish hoped that the award would provide prospective employees with added assurance that Canfor is a great place to build a career.

More than 60 businesses were picked as the top employers in B.C. by Canada’s Top Employers.

Employers were evaluated using eight criteria: (1) physical workplace; (2) work atmosphere and social; (3) health, financial and family benefits; (4) vacation and time off; (5) employee communications; (6) performance management; (7) training and skills development; and (8) community involvement.
