International job site Glassdoor has released its 2nd annual Employees’ Choice Awards, highlighting the 25 best places to work in Canada in 2017.
Glassdoor has grown as an employment resource due in large part to its sharing approach. All of the information on the site – company reviews, CEO approval ratings, salary information, interview questions, benefits, office photos, etc. – has been submitted by verified employees of the companies they’re commenting on.

So the 2017 Employees’ Choice Awards should not be taken lightly. After all, they’re based on the opinions of real people who really do work at these companies. A sure sign that these opinions matter? This year’s #1 place to work, Shopify, wasn’t even on 2016’s list. Meanwhile, last year’s #1 company, Earls Kitchen + Bar, dropped all the way to #21.
However, on a 5-star rating scale the difference between #1 Shopify and #25 Deloitte is just half a point (4.5 and 4.0 respectively), so it’s safe to say that if you call any of these companies
home work, you’re in a pretty good place.
