RBC, Hootsuite, Amazon and KPMG also in top five
TD Bank takes the title of most desirable company to work for in Canada, according to a LinkedIn report looking at Top Companies.
Also in the top five for Canada are RBC, Hootsuite, Amazon and KPMG Canada.
The results are based on the actions of LinkedIn’s more than 546 million professionals (including more than 14 million in Canada) and they look at four main pillars: interest in the company, engagement with the company’s employees, job demand and employee retention. (For fairness, LinkedIn removes itself and its owner Microsoft from consideration.)
Globally, the top 10 global companies are: Amazon, Alphabet, Facebook, Salesforce, Tesla, Apple, Comcast, the Walt Disney Company, Oracle and Netflix.
Here is what the highest ranked LinkedIn Top Companies in Canada are doing to attract and keep talent, according to LinkedIn:
TD Bank Group: Employees feel like they have a voice thanks to a yearly feedback survey in which more than 80 per cent of employees said they felt engaged at work in 2016. One of the things employees rate the highest is flexible working hours.
RBC: Employees are encouraged to live healthy lifestyles and are offered a wellness program that rewards healthy behaviour with credits employees can use toward things such as gym memberships, workout classes and weight-loss programs.
Hootsuite: The company’s “stretch program” encourages employees to spend one day a week trying a new position.
Amazon: Amazon’s inventors have won more than 2,300 patents in the past year, covering everything from Kindle cases to predictive restaurant ordering.
KPMG Canada: The company’s “global opportunities” program has sent Canadian participants to work in overseas offices in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, China and Switzerland.
