Directors’ Choice – 2012 Best Places to Work in Atlantic Canada

May 23, 2012

Directors’ Choice answering service (Saint John, NB) was recently named one of the Best Places to Work in Atlantic Canada, for the fourth consecutive year.   The survey and awards program, sponsored by Progress Magazine, was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Atlantic Canada, benefiting the region’s economy, workforce and businesses.  75% of the evaluation process for the award is based on survey responses from each company’s staff base.  The “Best Places to Work” list is home to only 27 companies in four Canadian Provinces.

Gary Darychuk, CEO, had the following to say: “It is my strong conviction that those that serve families during a time of death make a meaningful difference in people’s lives, at a time when they are most vulnerable.  Working in such an environment makes Directors’ Choice a rewarding place to work, but it is the sense of Team and Family that exists here that puts us over the top.  This sense of Team and Family exists despite the fast pace, emotional demands and stress that comes from our high standards of service.  I am honored to know that my team believes in our values wholeheartedly, enough to tell the world that this is a great place to work.”

Directors’ Choice was recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work awards ceremony on May 17th, and will be profiled in a special publication by Progress magazine in early June.
