For the third consecutive year, Princecraft Boats was awarded the Boating Industry Canada Employer of Choice award in the Marine Business category. The announcement was made at the Toronto International Boat Show, which runs Jan. 17-26.

“This award recognizes Canadian marine employers who have developed distinctive strategies to attract and retain employees, and we have worked very hard to be one of the best employers in the marine industry,” Princecraft president Rodier Grondin said in a statement.

Princecraft said it has initiatives to make its workplace productive and enjoyable, which helps attract and retain employees.

“Canada’s marine industry suffers from an acute shortage of human resources, especially among those with special skills or training, so the value of the Employer of Choice program is to support employers in creating a culture that helps to attract and retain those people,” Andy Adams, managing editor of Boating Industry Canada News Week. “Canadian Yachting Media continues to support this program for the benefit of the industry, and Princecraft has been an enthusiastic supporter of the program.”
