OTTAWA, April 17, 2014 /CNW/ - For the 7th year in a row, Royal LePage Performance Realty, a real estate firm serving Ottawa and Eastern Ontario, have ranked in the Top Best Workplaces in Canada, and the only real estate firm to have ranked in the top spot.

With over 400 Sales Representatives and Support Staff, Royal LePage Performance Realty is thrilled to announce that this year, our firm has ranked 7th for Best Workplaces in Canada in the medium-sized companies, and 1st in the Best Workplaces in Canada for Women for the second year in a row! They also had a special mention as a top company for Credibility.

The results were announced at the Awards Ceremony last night by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada at the Royal York in Toronto, and in a Special Report in today's Globe and Mail.

This is the seventh consecutive year that Royal LePage Performance Realty has been a top-ranking firm in Canada. This is simply outstanding, especially given that so few organizations have been able to achieve this milestone. They are the only real estate firm in Canada to rank in this survey.

The competition process is based on two criteria: first, an in-depth survey completed by staff and agents; and secondly, a rigorous in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. Together, they provide crucial data and an accurate portrait to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. Eleven million employees around the globe, and close to 300,000 employees in Canada, participated in the 2014 "Best Workplaces in Canada" survey.

A culture cannot be dictated by policy - it has to be lived, every day, to truly show its value. A great workplace is one where you trust the people you work for, have pride in what you do, and enjoy the people you work with. We are immensely proud of the culture and atmosphere that exists in our firm.

In today's corporate world, this indeed is a rare thing. We are truly blessed to share the same values with our colleagues!
