OTTAWA, Oct. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - For the second consecutive year, The
Conference Board of Canada has been officially recognized as one of the
National Capital Region's Top 25 Employers for 2009. The Ottawa-based
organization is widely recognized as Canada's foremost independent,
not-for-profit research organization.
"A key to our success and reputation is our ability to attract and retain
an outstanding staff, and receiving this recognition put the Board in a
much-envied position as an employer of choice," said Anne Golden, President
and CEO of the Conference Board. "We're proud to reflect the organizational
best practices that we research and share with our members."
Some of the programs that make the Conference Board an exceptional place
to work include: public transit passes for employees; fitness allowances; a
newly-renovated cafeteria space by designer Meredith Heron of Restaurant
Makeover; and on-site wellness programs.
The National Capital Region's Top 25 Employers is an annual competition
organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. Some 16,000
organizations were invited to apply nationally for this year's competition.
The winners are profiled in a special supplement in today's Ottawa Citizen.
