Dream Employers 2016 Event


It's that time of year again! The Dream Employers 2016 event will take place on April 28th, 2016. We can't wait to see what the 3rd Annual event has to bring this year! Last year, we had some high profile companies on the panel such as Canucks Sports & Entertainment, Westjet, BC Hydro, and the Vancouver Airport. Who will it be this year? 

How astonishing to see who made the Top 20 list this year compared to last year and who Metro-Vancouver residents thought were the top elite. Here's a list of this year's Top 20 finalist (in alphabetical order):

There are some repeat winners from last year and some new competitors. Wondering how some of these companies can stay on top? What are the qualities Metro-Vancouver residents are looking for?

The survey conducted revealed that job satisfaction and loyalty are increasing. The results show that 24% of employed Metro Vancouver residents are “delighted” with their current job (+2% since last year), while 50% are “happy” (+4) and 26% are “not so happy” (-6%). There is also a significant swing in terms of the number of employed residents who say they have no plans to abandon their current job (42%, +13) while half of them (46%, -8) would only consider leaving it if the right opportunity came along. Only 12% are actively looking for a new job, a five-point drop from last year’s results.
