The City of Toronto was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for the fourth year in a row, as announced today in The Globe and Mail’s feature magazine.
Organized by MediaCorp Canada Inc., this national competition, now in its 20th year, assesses employers against other organizations who lead in their industries in offering exceptional workplaces for their employees.
Editors evaluate employers based on eight criteria: physical workplace; work atmosphere and social environment; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement. Employers whose workplace operations and human resource practices offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs are also acknowledged.
The list of all Canada’s Top Employers and the reasons for selecting the winners are available at http://www.canadastop100.com/national/.
Mediacorp Canada Inc. is Canada’s largest specialty publisher of quality employment periodicals. It manages the well-known Canada’s Top 100 Employers project and the Eluta.ca job search engine, now used annually by more than 7.4 million Canadians.
“I am pleased that the City of Toronto is once again being recognized as an employer of choice and an industry leader. Investing in people and creating a positive environment for staff are key priorities, which also result in the delivery of exceptional essential services and programs for all Torontonians.”
– Mayor John Tory
