Spotlight: Blue Lime

Blue Lime Property Maintenance Ltd

Blue Lime is owned and operated by Doug and Jess, a husband and wife team from West Kelowna. They’ve been a Living Wage Employer since last year.

Blue Lime was born out of a need for change and was started in 2019. It is a company that focuses on being a ‘one-stop-shop’ to keeping properties safe, clean and functional.

Currently, Blue Lime has two full-time employees and two part-time employees, along with 3 casual employees that are on-call. Since their first employee, one of Doug and Jess’ goals has been to ensure that the company is a reflection of their values.

One of their goals has always been to ensure the best employees are attracted and that anyone that joins the team, is retained and their value is recognized and reflected in their compensation, from their hourly rate, to paid mileage, to staff celebrations and health benefits.

Blue Lime wants their employees to feel secure and thrive and being paid a living wage is part of that equation.

It is an honour to have a group that recognizes Blue Lime’s efforts to pay employees well, it is the icing on the cake. To any employer interested in becoming a Living Wage Employer, do it! It holds all business owners accountable, it will better our communities, it is what is needed now more than ever! Jess Hobden, Blue Lime
