CCEOC Inc., and Boating Industry Canada News Week Digest are pleased to announce that the team at Oak Bay Marine Group has achieved Award status in the Boating Industry Canada Employer of Choice (BICEOC) Awards.
Oak Bay Marine Group is the largest marine group in British Columbia according to CEO Brook Castelsky and is probably one of Canada’s largest as well. Recruitment and retention of top employees is vital to the organization’s success and the Boating Industry Canada Employer of Choice program has become an important management tool.
Listen carefully to what Oak Bay Marine Group CEO Brook Castelsky says about the program in his award acceptance video.
The Boating Industry Canada Employer of Choice is a national award program that recognizes and promotes the best employers in the Canadian recreational boating industry. Oak Bay Marine Group is one of five winners that have now been announced in News Week Digest.
Companies that take part in the program must 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
“I’m very excited for the companies that have achieved award levels in the Boating Industry Canada Employer of Choice program this year,” said Jeff Doran, president of CCEOC Inc. “With the added pressure of managing through the pandemic, these companies have continued to show resiliency and demonstrate how important their people are to the success of the business. They have worked hard to create world class cultures and preferred employer brands. The Oak Bay Marine Group has worked hard to win the award and we are impressed with their commitment to being at Award levels again in the coming year. ”
“We congratulate Oak Bay Marine group on their success and their commitment to the Boating Industry Canada Employer of Choice program. Boating Industry Canada enthusiastically supports the Employer of Choice program as a means for employers to both attract and retain the quality of people our industry needs to meet and exceed our customer’s expectations,” stated Andy Adams, Managing Editor of Boating Industry Canada News Week Digest.
