1-800-got-junk? Ranks Again As One Of Bc's Best Companies To Work For

(Thursday, November 30, 2006) - For a third consecutive year Vancouver-based 1-800-GOT-JUNK? has ranked as one of the top employers in British Columbia. Despite a competitive Canadian job market the junk removal service has maintained its enviable company culture, taking second place at last night's award ceremony. 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Founder & CEO, Brian Scudamore says, "We have won The Best Company to Work For Award the past two years running, and to rank second amongst such an impressive group of companies really tells us that we are doing something right." Nearly one hundred employees took part in an anonymous Watson Wyatt survey that ranked 1-800-GOT-JUNK? in the areas of alignment, capability, resources and motivation to assess how well the company performed in the eyes of their employees. The commitment 1-800-GOT-JUNK? has shown to hiring great people and treating them well is reflected in the company's strong work/life ethic, providing employees with: five weeks personal paid leave; full health and dental benefits; flexible working hours; and a 25% profit share program. Communication within the company is an integral part of the culture. Each day employees in the corporate office take part in a fast paced, five-minute, stand-up meeting called "Huddle". The purpose is to align and share good news, revenue goals and key frustrations or missing systems. "I've always said a great company is all about people," says Scudamore, adding "Of all the awards we have won I am most proud of the BC Business/ Watson Wyatt Best Company Award because the appreciation comes directly from our people." Since earning the Best Company honour in 2004, 1-800-GOT-JUNK? has taken the concept of 'open office' to a new level- running weekly tours of their downtown workplace to share with other business professionals the essentials of building a great business and company culture.
