By STAFF REPORTConstruction Skills Development
EllisDon has been recognized as one of the Ten Best Companies to Work For in 2015, as selected from Mediacorp Canada Inc.’s original Canada’s Top 100 Employers list.
Now entering its tenth year, the competition is organized by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers, who award this designation to fast-growing companies that offer their employees tremendous career opportunities, leading-edge perks, and unmatched benefits.
As is the custom, the Financial Post is honouring this year’s winners in a special newspaper supplement.
Top contenders were reviewed for recruitment and retention policies under the same eight criteria as Canada’s Top 100 Employers, including physical workplace; work and social atmosphere; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time-off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.
EllisDon, a first-time winner of this award, stood out for fostering an employee-centered culture that offers a share purchase plan and profit-sharing; supportive retirement planning assistance and a defined contribution pension plan; subsidies for tuition and professional accreditation; and formal career planning services.
“The Ten Best Companies to Work For designation is a testament to EllisDon’s employee-centered values, and the outstanding work environment and careers our employees deliver to one another,” said Rosemarie Lipman, EllisDon’s vice-president of people and culture. “It’s an honour to be recognized alongside other outstanding companies for putting people first.”
