OpenText Named One of Canada's Top 100 Employers for the Fifth Consecutive Year

WATERLOO, Ontario, Nov. 9, 2015 /CNW/ -- OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in Enterprise Information Management (EIM), today announced it has been named as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for the fifth consecutive year. The award recognizes companies with exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies.With a record number of employers applying for the Canada's Top 100 Employers competition, OpenText was selected after an extensive application process that included a detailed review of its operations and HR practices compared to others in their industry and region.

"This is a great recognition for OpenText and the OpenText Way," said OpenText CEO Mark J. Barrenechea. "The collective talent of our employees are the foundation of everything we do and what differentiates OpenText. Culture eats strategy for breakfast, and innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit inspires our employees so that they can perform at their personal and professional best."

"This year's Top 100 winners are influencing Canadians every day, and our goal is to document these leaders in the hope that they will inspire change for others," says Richard Yerema, Managing Editor at Mediacorp Canada Inc., which manages the competition. "We write about the employers that set the national benchmarks against which other organizations can compare their own initiatives and hopefully improve them."

Now in its 16th year, Mediacorp editors grade employers on eight criteria, which have remained consistent since the project began: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time-Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. The editors publish detailed reasons for selection and grades for these criteria, providing transparency in the choice of winners and a catalogue of best-practices for employers and job-seekers alike. 

The Top 100 winning organizations were announced in a special magazine published in The Globe and Mail. The full magazine and the editors' detailed reasons for selection are available online at: http://www.CanadasTop100.com/national.
