Best workplaces are just that, great companies where employees love to work.
Workers at these businesses are appreciated, paid well, supported, have access to training and promotions and in return are productive and deliver amazing customer service.
Eleven such companies, which have locations in the Okanagan, have made the list of 31 Best Workplaces in B.C.
The list doesn’t rank the companies, but rather states them alphabetically.
They are: Boston Pizza, Cactus Club Cafe, CapriCMW Insurance, Cobs Bread, Connect Hearing, Credit Counselling Society, Industry Training Authority, Joey Restaurants, Prospera Credit Union, Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop and Urban Systems.
The Best Workplaces list is compiled by Great Place to Work, a global consulting firm that advocates high-performance work culture and develops rankings around it. the 4.4-acre property with historic, rustic lodge with eight rooms, 60-person dining room, 36 campsites and eight cabins in October.
The purchase price wasn’t disclosed, but it had been listed for sale for $1.2 million.
As the name of the lodge indicates, it’s located on the shore of Chute Lake in Naramata, about half way between Penticton and Kelowna right on the Kettle Valley Rail Trail and the edge of Okanagan Provincial Park.
The rail trail is popular with cyclists and Chute Lake is popular with anglers and canoeists.
“It has amazing potential,” said Hoodoo co-owner Lyndie Hill.
“We look forward to working with our partners to create a unique destination to stay, play and take advanage of all the Okanagan has to offer.”
