Chilliwack, BC – For the first time in its 16 year history, Petcurean Pet Nutrition has been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers. The well-regarded national competition recognizes outstanding small and medium businesses that have not only created an outstanding work environment for their employees, but also offer forward-thinking human resources policies.
“The old assumption that smaller organizations offer less attractive benefits is increasingly looking out-of-date,” says Richard Yerema, Managing Editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp Canada Inc.
Located in the heart of the Fraser Valley, the premium pet food company was built on the foundation set by two good friends who were driven by the idea that pets deserved better. In its 16 years of business, this small family-run operation has seen extreme growth in both sales numbers and employee expansion across Canada, the United States and internationally. Today, Petcurean remains fiercely independent and lives by the rule of quality first, pets first without compromise.
“Out of 1,000 applicants, we are extremely honored and humbled to be named as one of Canada’s top employers,” said Human Resources Manager Cari McClelland. “Here at Petcurean we strive to not only listen to our employees’ needs but create a fun work culture where their meaningful work is valued.”
Petcurean employees receive extended health benefits, access to long term disability and an employee assistance program, a year-end bonus based on company performance and, extended maternity benefits. The company also encourages staff to expand their skill set by supporting studies at outside intuitions. “We have a work-hard play-hard atmosphere,” McClelland says. “When you become a part of the Petcurean company, you become a member of a family at the same time.”
