Gamma-Dynacare celebrates fourth straight year as one of Greater Toronto's Top Employers

BRAMPTON, ON, Nov. 17, 2011 /CNW/ - Gamma-Dynacare Medical Laboratories has been named, for the fourth consecutive year, as one of Greater Toronto's Top Employers by Mediacorp Canada, Inc.

"We are once again delighted to receive this recognition," said Naseem Somani, President and CEO, Gamma-Dynacare Medical Laboratories.  "It is our belief that we have the very best employees in the industry - employees who, through their commitment and dedication to the Canadians we serve - live our mission of providing information, impacting lives and caring for people, each and every day."

The Greater Toronto Top Employers award recognizes employees with head offices or principal places of business in the Toronto area who are industry leaders at creating exceptional workplaces and attracting and retaining employees.  The winners were selected from among the 2,700 workplaces who submitted an application to this year's national competition.  Employers were evaluated based on a number of factors, including work atmosphere and communication, benefits, training and skills development and community involvement.

Gamma-Dynacare's submission highlighted the employee programs, learning and development opportunities, health and safety practices and community fundraising and charitable projects that help to create a collaborative and engaging work environment and demonstrate the company's ongoing commitment to its employees.

For the 2012 competition, Gamma-Dynacare was recognized by the judges for encouraging ongoing employee development through tuition subsidies and a variety of in-house and online training programs, and for its academic scholarship program for children of employees pursuing post-secondary studies.  Gamma-Dynacare's benefit programs, which include top-up payments and extended health plan coverage for new mothers, and the company's three-week paid vacation allowance for new employees, were also cited as reasons for its selection as a top employer.

As one of the Top Employers in Greater Toronto, Gamma-Dynacare was listed in the November 16, 2011 edition of The Globe & Mail.
