The mining-related companies that made BC's Top Employers list

ERM Consultants and Knight Piésold were on BC's Top Employers list.

The annual competition, which is now in its 11th year, recognizes the British Columbia employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.

ERM Consultants provides a range of environmental and technical services to the resource development industry. Some attributes singled out by the selecting panel were encouraging ". . . employees to keep active through employee organized sports teams and free access to a fully-equipped onsite fitness facility" and "starts new employees with three weeks of paid vacation and considers previous work experience when setting vacation entitlements for experienced employees."

Knight Piésold was singled out in part because it "lets everyone share in the company's success with profit-sharing and year-end bonuses available to all employees". It also "encourages employees to continue to develop their skills through tuition subsidies for job-related courses, in-house and online training programs, formal mentoring and subsidies for professional accreditation"
