Congratulations to the Winners of the 2024 Boating Industry Canada Employer of Choice (BICEOC) Awards.
CCEOC Inc. and Boating Industry Canada News Week Digest are pleased to announce the winners of this year’s Boating Industry Canada Employer of Choice (BICEOC) Awards.
This is the only national award program that recognizes and promotes the best employers in the Canadian boating industry.
Companies that take part in the program submit a Company Profile and complete the Employee Commitment survey. A combined score determines if an organization has achieved the award. There are two categories:
·       Dealers & Marinas
·       Marine Business: Manufacturers, Suppliers, Service Providers, Retailers and Distributors
Winners are recognized at industry events such as the major boat shows and in Boating Industry Canada News Week Digest. They also receive an engraved trophy, press release, unlimited use of the BICEOC logo, social media exposure and a listing on the Boating Industry Canada and BICEOC websites.

This year’s award winners include:
CMP Group Ltd.
Freedom Marine
Gibbons Motor Toys
M&P Mercury Sales Ltd.

“I’m very excited for these companies,” said Jeff Doran, president of CCEOC Inc. “The winners have shown high scores in the areas of leadership, engagement and personal enjoyment. They can now take advantage of unique branding opportunities to help attract and retain the best talent in the market. They can also use the assessment data to improve employee engagement and help make their companies even better places to work and do business with.”

“The universal challenge facing our marine industry and in fact, industries around the world, is a shortage of labour. We are enthusiastic supporters of the Employer of Choice program as an excellent way to attract and retain the people we need to succeed,” stated Andy Adams, Boating Industry Canada Editor.

All participants have the opportunity to develop continuous improvement plans through their employee survey data report. These reports provide targeted insights that help address key organizational challenges to improve employee engagement and build a better corporate culture.
