On November 30th, BC Business held the 9th Annual “Best Companies to Work for in BC” gala at The Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. There were over 600 people who attended the awards, and more than 100 companies that took part from across British Columbia. The awards were mostly broken-out by industry sectors, which made for some good competition throughout the night. As the awards show ran through the list of industries that 6S may have been up for an award in, we sat on the edge of our seats waiting for 6S to possibly take home a best companies award in the Digital, Small Business, or Professional Services and Communications categories. Alas, with each category that passed, and no award for 6S, and as the possibility of winning seemingly slipped away, they announced the Top 10 Overall category. Would 6S win in this category? Top 10 Overall? No Way!
Yes Way!! 6S Marketing brought home the 10th Overall Best Company to Work for in BC Award! All of us at 6S couldn’t be happier about the win. We all know that 6S is an awesome place to work and we’re so happy that others recognize it as well!
Among the happiest? Chris Breikss and John Blown, Co-Founders of 6S Marketing. They went up on stage and accepted the award in true 6S style with an acceptance speech that got the only laughs all night from the crowd.

6S also claimed 4th place in the Professional Services and Communications category. View the list of winners on the BC Business website or in the December issue of BCBusiness Magazine.
The Best Companies to Work For in BC program is an employee rated program – meaning the employees rate the company anonymously via a survey, and provide feedback to BC Business about the benefit programs, employee bonuses and perks and why the company they work at is one of the best in BC.
It’s easy to see why 6S is the one of the best companies to work for in BC when you have employers like Chris and John. Congrats to both of you from all of us at 6S!
