B.C.-based company recognized once again for its outstanding workplace and forward thinking HR policies
VANCOUVER, B.C., April 12, 2019 — Great Little Box Company Ltd. (GLBC) announced today that it has again been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Small and Medium Employers of 2019. This annual competition organized by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 employers, has selected GLBC as one of the companies to be recognized for this coveted award. This annual award recognizes the small and medium enterprises that offer Canada’s best workplaces and forward-thinking human resources policies.
Reflecting on the award, GLBC’s President Brad Tindall says, “Recognition amongst your peers is always rewarding and helps validate that we are moving forward on a path shared by many other successful organizations. In today’s environment, with low unemployment, everybody’s competing for the same candidate but if we can leverage our social programs, people can see that it’s just not a job – it’s a culture.”
Headquartered in Richmond, B.C., GLBC has established itself as a one source manufacturer for innovative and custom packaging and label solutions. Founded 37 years ago, the company is now comprised of a diverse workforce of 300 employees and growing.
GLBC’s unique approach to supporting and valuing their employees includes everything from wellness programs, and birthday’s off to a company wide goal that when reached takes all employees on a “BOX GOAL” trip. It attracts great people and makes them want to stay – and invite others to join. Half of the company’s new hires are through referrals from within the company.
“GLBC’s success has always been attributed to the incredible employees we have on our team,” said Tindall. “At our core we believe a strong culture is critical to our success and we focus on being a very inclusive and family-oriented company where achieving work-life integration is possible.”
