BWZ Is Named One Of BC’s Top Employers

This year, Vancouver-based media tech company Black & White Zebra (BWZ) was recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers.

Feb 15, 2023 – Today, Mediacorp Canada Inc announced their annual “BC Top Employers” list recognizing employers in British Columbia who are leading their industries in offering exceptional places to work.

This year, Vancouver-based media tech company Black & White Zebra (BWZ) was recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers. 

To select the winners of the competition, Mediacorp Canada Inc evaluated organizations’ physical workplace, work and social atmosphere, health benefits, vacation policies, communication, performance management, training and development programs, and community involvement, looking for employers who are innovating with the most forward-thinking programs.

In their official announcement, Mediacorp highlighted BWZ’s commitment to improving the community:

“Digital media firm Black & White Zebra Industries helps employees make an impact in the community by providing paid time off to volunteer at local charities (equivalent of 12 days) and generously matches employee donations, with no limit.”

As a media company on a mission to help people succeed at work, BWZ is also dedicated to creating a productive and fun environment that empowers employees to make an impact and to enjoy their lives, both at work and outside of it. BWZ has rolled out many progressive policies, including:

flexible work schedules, 

• the option to work from home or the office,

• no minimum required work hours, 

• a generous 4-week vacation policy, 

• extended health care,

• time allocated to personal development, and

• a regular schedule of fun social events

BWZ also supports a number of BC charitable organizations through donating a portion of profit every year—in 2022, we donated 7% of profit to charitable organizations.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized among BC’s Top Employers”, says Cory Masters, BWZ’s Director of People Operations. “We’ve put a lot of consideration and effort into creating a fun, healthy, equitable place to work. I can honestly say I love coming into work every day. From our personal development allowance to our flexible work hours, we’ve wanted to make sure that a happy and productive employee experience is woven deep into our workplace culture”.

Now in its 18th year, BC’s Top Employers is a special designation that recognizes the British Columbia employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. Employers throughout British Columbia were evaluated by the editors at Canada’s Top 100 Employers using the same criteria as the national competition: (1) Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. The annual competition is open to any employer with its head office in British Columbia; employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector.

Founded in 1992, Mediacorp Canada Inc. is the nation’s largest publisher of employment periodicals. Since 1999, the Toronto-based publisher has managed the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project, which includes 18 regional and special-interest editorial competitions that reach millions of Canadians annually through a variety of magazine and newspaper partners, including The Globe and Mail. Mediacorp also operates, one of Canada’s largest job search engines, which reaches over two million job-seekers annually and features exclusive editorial reviews from the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project.

The full list of BC’s Top Employers (2023) was announced today in a special magazine co-published with the Vancouver Sun.
