Best employers see higher sales, profit, employee retention

Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, Chubb Insurance Company of Canada and Delta Hotels and Resorts are among the 80 Best Employers in Canada for 2016, according to Aon Hewitt.

These companies “set the mark” for engaging employees, demonstrating effective leadership, building a performance culture and leveraging the strength of their employer brand.

Globally, Aon has found Best Employers drive four percentage points higher operating profit than the average organization and six percentage points higher sales growth. They also have athird less staff turnover than their counterparts.

Where previous studies focusedon employee engagement as the primary requirement for Best Employer status,this year’s study is based on four indices of workplace effectiveness:

Engagement: Employees speak positively about their employer,intend to stay and are motivated to exert extra effort at work.

Leadership: Leaders treat employees as valued contributors,engage employees in the vision and lead the organization to success

Performance Culture: Employees are aligned toorganizational goals and are rewarded and recognized for their contribution
