The surveys are in and Tourism Vancouver has been named as one of Korn Ferry’s 2018 Employee Engagement Award winners! In the second annual awards program, Tourism Vancouver was recognized as an organization that has built superior levels of engagement among staff? which was evaluated through employee surveys. 

Tourism Vancouver was measured against other similar sized organizations based on the largest percentage of positive responses to two questions within the Korn Ferry employee opinion surveys:

1. I feel proud to work for the company.
2. I would recommend the company as a good place to work.

To calculate the winners, Korn Ferry analyzed the percentage of employees who ‘strongly agreed’ or ‘agreed’ with the two statements to create an overall score.

“We are honoured to be recognized as one of the Most Engaging Places to Work by Korn Ferry. It has always been a priority for us to foster our workplace culture and we work to improve the organization based on the feedback of our employees.” said Ty Speer, CEO, Tourism Vancouver. “We are grateful and feel doubly rewarded by our employees who shared their pride and recommendation of Tourism Vancouver as an engaging place to work.”

"We’re committed to fostering an environment that is driven by innovation. We want our people to feel that they are empowered to take risks, pursue new ideas and are inspired by their work – all which play a part in a more engaging workplace" added Speer.

 “Having a highly engaged workforce is no longer a ‘nice to have’ attribute,” said Mark Royal, Senior Director at the Korn Ferry Institute. “An engaged workforce has the power to deliver tangible competitive advantage in the ever-evolving war for talent and discretionary performance.”

About the study

The study analyzed recent Korn Ferry employee opinion survey data from 530 companies and 3.7 million respondents in more than 60 countries across the globe. The winners are companies that hold one of the top three highest scores within their respective countries of operation, with some countries recognizing four companies in the case of a tie.

In 16 countries, two categories have been created:

  • Small employers: at least fifty respondents and no more than 1,000 respondents
  • Large employers: more than 1000 respondents

In the other 32 countries, there is one single ranking including all companies with at least fifty respondents.
