We believe in fostering a work life balance for our employees and their families.
We understand that community begins at home and we know it’s important to celebrate the families who are represented by our employees. Each year we have several events so our employees and their families can take part in fun with the team and feel connected to our team.

In the spring of 2015, EV hosted the Leaders in Action event at both facilities. 240 store managers and business leaders toured both sites; learning about the complexities of multi-temperature management of Perishable goods, what happens to all of the recycling and refuse the stores load on empty trailers, the mezzanine area of EVG, and how to pick an order.
In the fall of 2014, forklift operators from across British Columbia came together to compete at the 16th BC Championship Forklift Rally held at the Cloverdale Agriplex. The competition had four divisions (Counterbalanced Electric, Reach Truck, Power Pallet Jack, Counterbalanced Propane).
Competitors skills were tested by a precision driving course and their knowledge challenged with a written test based on WorkSafeBC Regulations. In addition, competitors were also able to have a little fun by trying their hand at Forklift Basketball, Bowling & Soccer!
EV is proud that many of our employees won top prizes in the categories we competed in.
Pink Shirt Day
EV participated in the Anti-Bullying campaign, Pink Shirt Day. Employees were able to purchase pink shirts and show their support. Inclusivity and respect are essential components of our culture here at EV.
