Ceridian Canada Ltd., a leading Human Resources solutions provider, today announced it has been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2011, marking the eighth time the company has received this honour. Published by Maclean’s and compiled by Mediacorp Canada Inc., the annual list recognizes leadership in workplace benefits, and the ability to recruit and retain top-performing talent.
“This level of recognition is truly an honour, particularly because it is relevant to what we do as an organization,” said Dave MacKay, president, Ceridian Canada Ltd. “As an HR solutions provider, we place a high value on being one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers because we view the award as a confirmation of the strength of our own HR practices internally. Despite the turbulent economic times that Canadian businesses have experienced during the past couple of years, this award signifies that our employees are engaged, our culture is strong, and our Human Resources programs and practices are forward-thinking. This is extremely important to us, because it means that Ceridian continues to stand out as an exceptional employer and knowledgeable HR solutions provider.”
From an initial group of 75,000 employers across Canada, Mediacorp invited 10,000 of the fastest-growing employers to apply, plus an additional 2,500 companies and organizations in industries its editors wanted to examine more closely. More than 2,750 employers completed this year’s extensive application process which included a detailed review of their operations and HR practices.
The Mediacorp team looked for best practices and innovative approaches in eight key areas: Physical Workplace; Work Atmosphere & Social; Health, Financial & Family Benefits; Vacation & Time Off; Employee Communications; Performance Management; Training & Skills Development; and Community Involvement.
“The Top 100 Employers process is an enlightening and educational exercise that provides us with an ability to assess our employee value proposition, and compare it to that of other leading companies,” said John Cardella, chief people officer, Ceridian Canada. “We are very proud of the fact that we have been acknowledged repeatedly for our great work environment and for designing a flexible, thorough benefits offering that connects with the needs of today’s diverse workforce.
