The 2018 Best Workplaces in Canada list is compiled by Great Place to Work Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
“Thank you to our employees, and congratulations to them for making Rittal one of Canada’s Best Workplaces for the fourth year in row. This is an amazing achievement and I am immensely proud of our team we have and the great work they all do. This is our highest ever ranking in the current category,” said Tim Rourke, president of Rittal Canada.
This year’s list received more than 400 registrations and over 80,000 employees participated in the 2018 Best Workplaces in Canada survey, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees.
“Creating a ‘Great Place To Work’ has been pivotal in driving employee satisfaction and engagement,” said Warren Osak, founder and president of Electromate. “Numerous empirical studies have shown that highly engaged employees are more productive and deliver a higher level of customer satisfaction than unengaged employees, and much of our competitive advantage stems from the positivity in our workplace.”
