Nycomed Canada One of GTA's Top Employers

Company Recognized for third Year in a Row as a Great Place to Work

OAKVILLE, ON, Nov. 16, 2011 /CNW/ - Nycomed Canada is proud to be selected as one of Greater Toronto Area`s (GTA) Top Employers, in a list announced in today's Toronto edition of the Globe and Mail.

A part of Canada's Top 100 Employer project, the GTA Top Employers is awarded to companies that provide exceptional workplace environments for employees based on key areas including physical environment, culture, community involvement, health, financial and family benefits, training, vacation and time off.  Nycomed was selected as a GTA Top Employer from over 15,000 companies who were invited to apply.

"Our people and our culture is what drives Nycomed's performance. At work we try to make a difference every single day, and I believe this is a reflection of our employees and the culture we have created," says Mike Egli, President & CEO of Nycomed Canada.  "As a team, we have worked hard to create a work environment that is not only rewarding and challenging, but also conducive to achieving a balance."

In Mediacorp Canada`s analysis, employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.  Nycomed's investment in their employees, a strong benefit program, employee communications, performance management, community involvement and training all contribute to a strong culture aligned to the internal values.

While reflecting on his experience working at Nycomed for almost a year and a half, Diederik Peters, Sales Effectiveness Consultant in Nycomed's Sales Training department believes "Nycomed has created an environment that is the perfect balance between fulfilling career aspirations and family life. Having worked in this industry for many years I can honestly say this is the first place that truly lives and breathes its values. I'm really proud to be part of the Nycomed team." says Diederik.
