53 Ontario based companies make Canada's top 100 employers list for 2017

Nov 8 2016, 1:22 am

Over half of Canada’s top 100 employers are based in Ontario.

The annual list of Canada’s Top 100 Employers was announced on November 7, and includes employers that lead the nation in attracting and retaining employees. Of the top 100 in 2017, 41 are Toronto based employers and include the City of Toronto, The Toronto International Film Festival, and the University of Toronto.

Organizers of the competition saw a record number of employers take part, and approximately 7,500 employers were invited to apply. Employers had to submit detailed applications, which included comprehensive review of operations and HR practices.

“This year, we’ve seen more employers put forward programs to improve inclusion at their organizations,” said Kristina Leung, Senior Editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp, in a press release. She went on to add:

We often see these programs described as enabling employees to bring their ‘whole-self’ to work, but many go beyond traditional views of diversity and inclusion. As society changes, so do the nation’s leading organizations – our job as writers is to chronicle how these changes affect the organizational cultures of the most progressive employers.

Now in its 18th year, the Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition continues to grade employers on eight criteria: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time-Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement.
