TORONTO, June 8 /CNW/ - Applications are now available for the 2010
Canada's Top 100 Employers project. Now in its 10th year, the annual
competition recognizes the companies and organizations across Canada that lead
their industries in providing exceptional places to work.
The competition is open to all employers - large or small, public-sector
or private - that offer innovative programs to attract and keep talented
employees. Employers are compared to others in their industry and this year's
winners will be announced in a special issue of Maclean's magazine on October
6, 2009. The competition is managed by Mediacorp Canada Inc., which publishes
detailed reasons for each employer's selection on its popular job search
engine Eluta.ca. Publishing detailed Reasons for Selection is a distinguishing
feature of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project, providing transparency in
the selection of winners and guidance to other employers on how they can
become better places to work.
To determine the winners each year, Mediacorp editors evaluate applicants
on eight key criteria: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social;
(3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee
Communications; (6) Employee Engagement; (7) Training & Skills Development;
and (8) Community Involvement.
Employers complete a single application to be considered for the Canada's
Top 100 Employers competition, as well as 18 other regional and
special-interest "top employer" competitions that Mediacorp manages with a
variety of media and other partners. These special-interest projects include:
Canada's Greenest Employers; Canada's Top Family-Friendly Employers; Canada's
Best Diversity Employers; Financial Post's Ten Best Companies to Work For; and
the Best Employers for New Canadians.
Completed applications are due June 26, 2009. To obtain a copy of the
