Earlier this year we were honoured to be named a finalist in the Alberta’s Best Workplaces awards – and now we are thrilled to say we are officially a WINNER of an Alberta’s Best Workplaces title!
On Thursday, May 23, 2013 the awards ceremony was held and Orbis was recognized as best workplace for Health and Safety. What made the judging panel take notice was our:
- Exceptional safety rating
- Comprehensive safety program and certifications
- Great health benefits program that targets employee wellness, such as our EAP program, long and short term disability policies
- Striving to promote healthy and active living, such as our Healthy Living Reimbursement Program, opportunities with B3, lunch hour yoga, World Partnership Walk team, soccer sponsorships

The other finalists for the health and safety award were City of Grande Prairie, Dynalife DX, IMV Projects, and also PCL Construction Management who tied us for the win.
Orbis was also a finalist in the best overall workplace in Alberta for under 100 employees because of our commitment to making sure our team has the best, from cellphones, to summer events, to community involvement and activity. It is truly exciting to be recognized in the province amongst so many other great companies, and to have other companies from across the province interested in what Orbis is doing.

We all should be very proud of the recognition and thankful for all of our wonderful clients who help us to have such a safe and healthy workplace!
