Tasktop Named Finalist For BCBusiness Magazine's Best Companies to Work for in British Columbia Award

Leading technology firm for ALM integration recognized for outstanding organizational culture, employee engagement and leadership

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tasktop Technologies (www.tasktop.com), creator of Eclipse Mylyn and the leader for Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) integration, today announced it was named a finalist for BCBusiness Magazine's 11th annual Best Companies to Work for in British Columbia (http://www.bestcompanies.ca/). The award program honors companies dedicated to outstanding workplace practices.

With more than one million users, including a majority of the Global 2000, Tasktop connects the world of software delivery with Mylyn, Tasktop Dev and Tasktop Sync solutions for organizations adopting Agile and modernizing their ALM stacks. Tasktop's increasingly prominent presence in the industry has inspired a multitude of awards, several of which have recognized Tasktop's outstanding workplace practices. In 2011, Tasktop was recognized as Best Employer by Small Business British Columbia and as one of BCBusiness Magazine's Best Companies to Work for in the digital technology and services category.

"We are honored to have the passion of Tasktop's employees people recognized this BCBusiness Magazine award," said Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop Technologies and creator of the open source Eclipse Mylyn project. "Tasktop has been redefining the landscape of software delivery, and our products and services would not have been possible without the exemplary dedication and talent of our employees, both those based in Vancouver and worldwide.  We also value the employee survey mechanism and report provided by the award nomination process, and made adjustments to our behavior as a company based on that feedback."  

The survey that determines finalists for the award measures employee satisfaction in key areas of talent management systems: organizational culture, employee engagement and leadership. The selection is a year-long process and finalists are featured in the December issue of BCBusiness Magazine.

"Participating companies have their CEO or another senior representative of the company fill out a survey describing the company's best practices as well as administer an anonymous online employee survey," said Natasha Gowda, marketing coordinator for BCBusiness Magazine. "Mindfield Group then assesses the data from both surveys with employee responses counting for 70 percent of the final score, the company survey counting for 20 percent of the score, and employee participation rate accounting for 10 percent of the score."

The highest ranked organizations will be declared 'The Best Companies to Work for in B.C.' for 2012 and will be revealed at the Awards Gala taking place at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver on Nov. 28, 2012 (http://www.bcbusinessonline.ca/best-companies-work-bc-awards-gala).
