Jacques Whitford Honoured as One of Atlantic Region's Best Places to Work



    ST. JOHN'S, June 20 /CNW/ - Jacques Whitford Ltd., an international
leader in engineering, environmental, sustainability and earth sciences
solutions, is pleased to announce it has been chosen by Progress Magazine as
one of the Best Places to Work in Atlantic Canada.
    "This is particularly thrilling for us because we're being recognized as
one of the best employers in the region where we first started our company and
remain headquartered," said John Adams, President of Atlantic Canada for
Jacques Whitford. "I am proud that we've been able to set high standards and
demonstrate real leadership in creating an exceptional environment for
employees."
    Jacques Whitford was awarded the honour based on a rigorous assessment
completed independently by The Best Companies Group for Progress Magazine. The
unique two-part process first requested the completion of a survey by company
executives and then collected feedback from approximately 350 randomly
selected Jacques Whitford employees. By garnering employee feedback, this
competition was able to ensure that staff members' experiences were positively
impacted by Jacques Whitford's programs and policies.
    Consistently praised for their superior employee-focused programs and
environmentally responsible policies, Jacques Whitford was also recognized
this year as one of MacLean's Top 100 Employers in Canada and by Today's
Parent Magazine as one of the 10 most family-friendly employers in the
country.
    "Ensuring Jacques Whitford remains a company where people can have a fun
and rewarding career allows us to attract and retain the best and the
brightest," continued Mr. Adams. "When Hector Jacques and Mike Whitford
founded the company in 1972 they had a clear belief and philosophy which still
leads the company today...the best people attract the best clients."
