TORONTO, Oct. 18 /CNW/ - Seneca has been named one of Greater Toronto's
top 75 employers in a special supplement of the Toronto Star, released today.
The employers are selected from the list of organizations considered for
Canada's Top Employers.
Mediacorp Canada publishes the list of the annual competition for
"Canada's Top 100 Employers" and The Toronto Star is the sponsor of the
regional competition for the "Greater Toronto Top 75 Employers". Selected
employers are large and small, from a variety of industries, offering
different benefits and working conditions.
"The common thread that runs through these lists is that each employer is
a leader in its industry," said Anthony Meehan, publisher for Mediacorp.
The most interesting and novel things employers are doing were taken into
consideration, so a list of "best practices" for each field could be created.
Seven key areas were considered when selecting this year's list. They include
- physical workplace
- work atmosphere and social
- health, financial and family benefits
- vacation and time off
- employee communications
- performance management
- training skills and development
"This acknowledgement recognizes the dedication and commitment of our
employees who make it possible for Seneca offer high quality education and
services that support our students," said Seneca Vice-President of Human
Resources, Susie Vallance.
More people have chosen Seneca than any other college in Canada. With
eight campuses across the Greater Toronto Area, Seneca provides
internationally and nationally recognized polytechnic education, training, and
academic pathways key to graduate career success in the global economy. Every
Seneca diploma, certificate and degree program is developed to a high academic
standard, in consultation with industry, integrated with information
technology, combined with technical and transferable skills, and reinforced by
opportunities for ongoing education and re-training. www.senecac.on.ca.
