About the Dream Employers Survey:
In one of the largest studies of its kind, the Dream Employers Survey asks 2,500+ people in Metro Vancouver which companies they'd most like to work for.
In addition to identifying Metro Vancouver's top employers, the survey also focuses on understanding how satisfied employees are with their work, what drives satisfaction levels, and what causes people to quit their jobs.
Our 2016 survey also includes a special focus on millennials, including what differences exist in their employment satisfaction, engagement, and motivation when compared to other workers in B.C.
We are pleased to be able to announce the top 20 employers as determined by the survey. Stay tuned as we count down the list and find out how these organizations rank - the top spot will be announced on April 28, 2016.
