Environmental & Buildings Constructor Ranks No. 44 on the List
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 14 /CNW/ - Maple Reinders Constructors is pleased
to be named among the Top 50 Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada. The
study, now in its fifth year, is run by Hewitt Associates through Queens
University and was published in the Globe and Mail.
Becoming a Top Best Small and Medium Employer is a very detailed and
competitive process. This national awards program recognizes top employers
with between 50 and 400 employees and is based on the surveyed responses from
employees. This study mirrors the renowned Best Employer in Canada initiative
for companies having more than 400 employees.
"Despite the challenging economic times, creating an environment in which
employees feel engaged and valued is a top priority," said Mike Reinders,
President of Maple Reinders. "Our top ranking is especially significant given
that our employees themselves participated in this survey, with a great
response rate of over 90%. The results of the survey generated tremendous
energy, pride and a positive atmosphere in the company, as well as an
opportunity to identify areas for improvement."
Maple Reinders' commitment to promoting a positive work environment for
its employees includes work/life balance initiatives designed to assist in
integrating the responsibilities of work and the necessities of employees'
personal lives. Other programs and initiatives encompass wellness, career
training and development, staff social events, community service
opportunities, and reward programs.
What differentiates this ranking from most others is the fact that the
results are determined from Employee Opinion Surveys. Here, 18 key employee
engagement drivers are detailed and analyzed. The evaluation process also
includes the assessment of organization practices and perspectives from the
leadership team. This year, more than 120,000 employees from companies across
Canada participated in the study.
Study partners include Queen's School of Business, Queen's Centre for
Business Venturing and Hewitt Associates. More information about the Best
