Burlington, Ont.-based Endress+Hauser Canada Ltd. has been named one of the top employers for 2010 in the Hamilton-Niagara region. The annual competition, organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers, is now entering its fourth year and recognizes employers that lead their industry as exceptional places to work.
Employers are evaluated on rigorous criteria including physical workplace; work and social atmosphere; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development and community involvement. Endress+Hauser excelled in each of these categories.
