On Tuesday, January 21st at the NMMA Canada Recreational Boating Industry Breakfast at the 2020 Toronto International Boat Show, Boating Industry Canada News Week announced the winners of the 2019 Employer of Choice awards.

The Employer of Choice program is a business management tool that is available to marine industry businesses and there is no cost for qualified businesses to participate and gain the benefit of the resources. The costs only apply to purchasing the detailed reports if a participating business elects to do so.

Boating Industry Canada News Week has supported this valuable program for several years now as a means of supporting the industry in our quest to attract and maintain more valuable employees. Benefits of becoming an Employer of Choice include:
         • Reduced turnover - More engaged workforce
         • Increased productivity
         • Positive employer branding and PR
         • Higher customer satisfaction and loyalty
 
While many businesses participated in the program during 2019, there were four businesses that achieved award winning levels. We send our congratulations to:

Princecraft - Marine Business

Desmasdon’s Boatworks - Dealers/Marine

M&P Mercury - Dealers/Marine

Gibbons Motor Toys - Dealers/Marine

The awards were presented during NMMA Canada Recreational Boating Industry Breakfast. Accepting the award for Princecraft in the Category of Marine Business was CEO Rodier Grondin. Accepting the award for Desmasdon’s Boat Works in the category of Dealers/Marine was owner Andy Blenkarn.
