These are the Greater Toronto Area's top employers for 2019

Dec 7 2018, 3:16 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.

“If you’re an employee who works in technology, you have a wide range of employers and industries here that need your talent,” says Richard Yerema, Managing Editor of Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp.

“With so many head offices here, GTA employers are starting to realize that their competition for top talent also includes employers well outside their industry.  This is something new for most organizations.”

Now in its 13th 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 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.

So who made this year’s golden list?
