“This achievement is a testament to the dedication and passion of our incredible people, making it one of the best and most admired places to work in Canada,” said Britta Kroupa, Human Resources Leader, Philips North America. “We believe that a supported and engaged workforce is the foundation of our success, and we continue to invest in our people to maintain this unmatched workplace experience.”
This year's list was determined by an independent survey of over 40,000 Canada-based employees from all industry sectors, working at companies employing at least 500 people within Canada. Over 900,000 employer evaluations were considered, and the top 300 companies have been awarded. Respondents were asked to rate their employer based on a range of criteria, including salary, gender pay-equity, work flexibility, opportunities for promotion and on-the-job training. They were also asked about their willingness to recommend any previous employers of the last two years. Participants were also given the opportunity to evaluate other employers in their respective industries, or the employers of friends, acquaintances, and family members that stand out either positively or negatively.
