"People First" Nets Ernst & Young Top Ten Employer Award



    TORONTO, April 23 /CNW/ - Ernst & Young has once again been distinguished
by Canadian Business magazine's Best Workplaces in Canada list, this year
ranking 10th on the list of 50 organizations. The new list marks the second
consecutive year that Ernst & Young has been recognized by this prestigious
ranking.
    "We attribute this award to our People First culture, which focuses on
providing an inclusive environment where talented people can develop and
flourish," said Canadian Chairman and CEO Lou Pagnutti. "This recognition
demonstrates that Ernst & Young is truly one of Canada's top draws for
outstanding people - and we are proud to provide Canadian businesses with
world-class accounting services delivered by the best people."

    
    This is one of many top employer awards Ernst & Young has won this year,
including:

    -   Financial Post's 2007 list of the Ten Best Companies To Work For in
        Canada (the only organization to make the list both years since its
        inception in 2006)
    -   Macleans magazine's 2007 list of Canada's Top 100 Employers
    -   Today's Parent magazine's 2007 ranking of the Top 10 family-friendly
        employers
    

    Cited in the awards are things like the firm's innovative family-friendly
benefits, its flexible work arrangements, and its investments in learning and
mentoring.
    The list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled for Canadian Business
magazine by Great Place to Work(R) Institute Canada and is based on surveys of
a random selection of employees and an in-depth review of the organization's
culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures.
