Seven is a lucky number for Habanero, which placed #7 overall in the BC Business list of the "Best Companies to Work for in BC". Last year Habanero also placed #7, but in a narrower category that only included companies with fewer than 100 employees.
Broken down by industry sector Habanero placed #2 in the category of professional services and communications.
Selections for the "Best Companies" list are based on anonymous employee responses to a survey measuring talent systems, employee engagement, leadership dynamics, and organization culture.
The fun question posed in this year's company-wide survey was: "If your organization were a high school archetype, which would it be?" One Habanero employee responded, "Our company would be an artist because it focuses on innovation while making sure everyone's personal well-being remains a priority. It is an art to balance life, work and fun. My company does it well and strongly encourages it."
