2015 Business Excellence Awards

We are proud to announce that we have won the Green Award at the 2015 Lake Country Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence awards!  We would like to send a huge thanks to whoever nominated us in Lake Country!

For those that don’t know, we built our office building with the environment in mind, and carefully sourced all products, trying to use as much recycled or rapidly renewable resources as possible.  From recycled glass counter tops and bamboo flooring, to all geothermal heating and cooling, we tried to make the smallest environmental footprint as possible. 

Besides our building, we try to be mindful of the environment with all of our decisions.  We are an almost paper-free office, use recycled products for our branded print material, use organic cleaners, organic coffee, provide organic fruit, etc. We try to do anything that can help make the smallest footprint and be the least damaging to our world. 

Check out our YouTube video below that highlights all of the environmental aspects of our building!

Thanks again to everyone that nominated and voted for us – it is greatly appreciated and we are honoured to have won this award!

Happy Autumn!

For most individuals autumn means shorter days, less daylight and less energy, which we, at Beelineweb, are trying to avoid!

Inspired by Sweden, and their widely tested short workdays, we have decided that for the months of October and November, we are switching to a 7 hour work day - but keeping the salary as though we are here for 8 hours. Our new office hours for October and November will be 8am PST to 3pm PST (still including our 30 minute paid fitness break and lunch break in those 7 hours too!). This will hopefully result in more work/life balance, and more daylight to enjoy the things that really matter.  Our goal is happier, healthier, better rested individuals, resulting in increased energy, productivity and efficiency for the hours spent in the office.

Happy Autumn Everyone!
