Best work­places

The Daily Courier - - BUSINESS -

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.”
