Canada's small and medium employers are learning from the past, as many organizations that have made the list as a best employer have moved up the rankings this year.

The annual study of Canada's 20 best small and medium employers is conducted by the Queen's Centre for Business Venturing (QCBV) at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., in conjunction with HR consulting firm Hewitt Associates. Canadian organizations with between 50 and 399 permanent employees are eligible to participate.

Several companies that made the list in 2006 are back in 2007 and have improved their position on the list, said Einar Westerlund, the study's projects director.
