Carswell, SaskCentral and Four Seasons among Best Workplaces in Canada

100 employers make list based on employee survey, ‘culture audit’
|hrreporter.com|Last Updated: 04/10/2013

Carswell, SaskCentral and Four Seasons Hotels are among the 100 Best Workplaces in Canada for 2013, according to the Great Place to Work Institute. The list is divided into two categories, medium companies with 50 to 999 employees, and large, multinational companies with more than 1,000 employees.

Two-thirds of Great Place to Work’s assessment of a workplace is based on feedback from employees through a survey, while a “culture audit” accounts for one-third of the assessment, looking at an employer’s value system, programs and practices (such as employee demographics, voluntary turnover, benefits and perks, and employee development).

The institute also recognizes the top 25 Best Workplaces in Canada for Women, which for 2013 includes Royal LePage Performance Realty, McDonald’s and Intuit Canada.
