“The pandemic has reminded us that human interaction is very much the glue that binds society and a workforce. While it’s clear that much office work can now be done from home, good employers are thinking more deeply about the adverse social and health effects that come from isolation, especially mental health,” Richard Yerema, managing editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp, said in a press release.
Now in its 22nd annual edition, Canada’s Top 100 Employers is an editorial competition that recognizes employers with exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies.
It’s released each year by publishing company Mediacorp.
Employers are graded on eight criteria and then compared to other similar organizations in their field to determine which is performing the best. The criterium includes:
- Physical Workplace
- Work Atmosphere & Social
- Health, Financial & Family Benefits
- Vacation & Time Off
- Employee Communications
- Performance Management
- Training & Skills Development
- Community Involvement
The top employers for 2022 didn’t just innovate ways to bring their employers together in a time of isolation, they also worked to give back to the communities they’re in. They also helped their own employees by creating more mental health programs and extending health coverage to employees who were laid off.
” The best organizations are changing their workplaces to emphasize benefits like human interaction and camaraderie that offsite employees don’t get from a steady diet of Zoom meetings and chat applications,” Anthony Meehan, publisher at Mediacorp, said in a press release.
