Vancouver, BC – April 16, 2021. The BC Real Estate Association (BCREA) is among one of Canada's 50 Best Workplaces™ of 2021. The list of Best Workplaces™, and related stories, will appear in a Special National Report on Friday April 16, 2021 in The Globe and Mail.

“It’s an honour to be named one of Canada’s Best Places to Work” says BCREA CEO Darlene Hyde. “All of us at BCREA are passionate about co-creating a great culture that promotes excellence, growth, and staff engagement. Making our people a priority allows us to be more collaborative and innovative, in service of BC’s ten real estate boards and 23,000 REALTORS®.”

As the provincial association for BC Realtors, BCREA is committed to continuous improvement. “Being in the top 50 of Canada’s Best Places to Work is also a growth opportunity” says Hyde. “We look forward to learning from the insights gained through the process and continuing to support our staff as they’re the ones who really make BCREA a great place to work.”

The 2021 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute. The competition process to be ranked on this list is employee driven, based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results and the remaining one-third from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to five trust-building dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

This year’s list captured the experience and sentiment of over 82,000 employees, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees.
