Kootenay Savings today announces its recognition as one of the 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ in Canada for the second year running.

This annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation towards engaging their employees.

“More employers are realizing that the most successful organizations are those that invest in employee engagement,” said Razor Suleman, CEO and founder of I Love Rewards.

“We’re thrilled to honour those companies that are truly committed to creating positive, thriving work environments. These companies understand that their employees are their greatest asset and are leading by example as they revolutionize the workplace.

“All of our award winners are ahead of the curve — they should be extremely proud.”

The 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ Awards panel of judges evaluated each applicant on how they measured up to other organizations based on the Eight Elements of Employee Engagement™.

The Eight Elements of Employee Engagement™ include: communication, leadership, culture, rewards and recognition, professional and personal growth, accountability and performance, vision and values and corporate social responsibility.

“It’s great to be recognized again this year,” said Brent Tremblay, president and CEO of Kootenay Savings.

“Considering the economic climate of the last few years this award speaks directly to the efforts of all of our employees at Kootenay Savings. A satisfied and engaged workforce  translates directly into excellent member service.  I’m very proud of our entire team.”
