Saint-Georges, November 5, 2015 – Boa-Franc, manufacturer of Mirage wood floors, is proud to be named one of the Best Employers in Canada for 2016, based on the results of the survey by Aon in Canada. The survey of 300 organizations publicly recognizes employers that have established outstanding work environments.
Boa-Franc excels particularly well in employee motivation, leadership, performance culture, and employer brand, which earned the company its Gold level recognition.
For Boa-Franc president Pierre Thabet, this distinction is very significant: “Being named one of the Best Employers by our employees is very gratifying because it illustrates the strong sense of belonging and dedication that each of our 340 employees shows every day. I’m very proud of the whole Boa-Franc team and I’m certain that the Spirit that drives our entire organization also echoes with our customers and suppliers. That’s what really sets Boa-Franc apart from everyone else. And I want to thank all our employees!”
From a human resources perspective, the benefits of this distinction are many: “We are delighted by these results, especially since they come from employees at every level all across the organization,” explained Nicolas Jean, human resources manager at Boa-Franc. “The survey shows how much employees appreciate the company and also highlights opportunities for improvement that we can focus on to become even better. It’s perfectly in line with our culture of continuous improvement that has been part of Boa-Franc’s DNA for over 30 years.”
