Winnipeg, MB – November 25, 2020 – Broadview Networks is proud to announce today we have been recognized as a Manitoba Top Employer. This is an award that recognizes exceptional employers with progressive human resources programs and initiatives. The winners aren’t ranked but are instead listed alphabetically. This year’s winners were innovative organizations that embraced technology, offered more flexible working arrangements, and communicated well with their people during these unprecedented times.
“The employers chosen as this year’s winners have also distinguished themselves during the pandemic,” says Richard Yerema, managing editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp. “They continue to demonstrate leadership, going the extra distance to take care of their employees and the community in what is proving to be one of the most challenging years in living memory.”
In the wake of the global health crisis, Broadview Networks has focused on business continuity measures such as providing staff remote access to its work environment. In doing so, our priority was to promote a healthy and safe environment for our staff. For Broadview, this pandemic meant investing in our employees. “We’ve invested a lot into our staff experience and customer experience. That’s a big part of why we’re a great place to work”, said Michael Orloff, President.
As a result, Broadview instead of measuring staff utilization, we used response rate and resolution time as key metrics. “All our effort was focused on how quickly we could respond to and resolve customer issues,” said Michael Orloff, the company’s president. Although the volume of support calls increased, Broadview was able to achieve its best ever response times.
“We are proud to be recognized as a Manitoba Top Employer”, said Michael Orloff, President. “Our team stepped up and delivered during a challenging year. They are the reason we deserve this recognition”. In the end, our team, experience, and values are the most important factors to successfully win this prestigious designation. Broadview Networks has created a culture that focuses on collaborations and innovation, encouraging a long-lasting relationship with employees, customers, and partners.
“This year, Manitoba employers demonstrated an exceptional sense of community,” added Kristina Leung, senior editor at Mediacorp. “This year’s winners supported nearly 3,500 charities across the province and their employees contributed over 16,000 volunteer hours. Over half the winners also supported local charities with matching contributions made by their employees.”
