These are the Greater Toronto Area's top employers for 2020

Dec 6 2019, 12:23 pm

It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but Canada’s largest city is home to some of the best employers in the country.

Following the release of the list of Canada’s Top 100 Employers last month, Mediacorp Canada has released Greater Toronto’s Top Employers 2019, highlighting the best places to work in the region.

Toronto has seen many booms in its history,” says Anthony Meehan, Publisher at Mediacorp, which manages the competition.

“From its early days as a lake port, to furniture and warehousing, then as a financial centre and now as one of North America’s largest technology hubs – the skyline of this city and the jobs it offers have been shaped by waves of transformation.”

Now in its 14th year, the Greater Toronto’s Top Employers competition, recognizes employers with exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies.

Winners are graded 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.

“The Greater Toronto Area continues to be the most competitive employment market in the country,” adds Kristina Leung, Senior Editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp.

“The rapid growth in technology employers has created opportunities across a wide range of occupations, from healthcare to education and manufacturing. The region’s strong economy draws tens of thousands of new residents each year – local employers are working overtime to attract the best and brightest to their organizations and you can see their efforts in this year’s list of winners.”

The annual competition is open to any employer with its head office in the Greater Toronto Area; employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector.
