It has a lot to do with the engagement of all levels of management in Quebec, said Andrée Mercier, a senior vice-president at Aon Hewitt in Montreal.

"Engagement scores for both senior and middle management, as well as supervisors, in Quebec surpass the national average for employees in these positions,” he said. "When all levels of leadership are highly engaged, that enthusiasm and commitment is bound to have a positive impact on other employees in the organization.”
