Company named one of Canada's 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 21, 2013 /CNW/ - EllisDon has been recognized as
one of the most admired corporate cultures, along with nine others, in
the Enterprise category.
Today, Waterstone Human Capital Ltd. released its annual list, now in
its ninth year, of Canada's 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures for 2013. Waterstone Human Capital Ltd. - an executive recruitment and human
capital consulting practice - created a program that recognizes
Canadian organizations for developing a competitive advantage through a
culture of best performance. This year's program drew over 600
nominations from various privately-held and publicly-traded
organizations across Canada.
In November, the Program's 30-member Board of Governors voted and chose
ten winners in four categories - Enterprise, Mid-Market, Growth and
Small Cap, and Broader Public Sector. Nominees were judged on six
criteria: vision and leadership; recruitment and hiring for fit;
cultural alignment and measurement; retention, rewards and recognition;
organizational performance; and corporate social responsibility.
EllisDon was selected as one of ten winners in the Enterprise category
(revenues above $500 million), a testament to it being at the forefront
of best practices in Canada.
"EllisDon's culture embodies their employees' innovative spirit and
strongly focuses on cultural fit, which sets them apart in their
industry," said Marty Parker, CEO of Waterstone and Chair of the
Program."EllisDon leaders encourage employees to bring their ideas to
the table in an open way, which is both amazing to see in such a large
organization, and a strong symbol of entrepreneurialism and
empowerment. Congratulations to EllisDon."
Janine Szczepanowski, EllisDon's Vice President of Leadership and
Entrepreneurial Development, said, "We have always known our culture is
the heart of our organization. It makes us who we are and enables us to
achieve what we have. Being recognized for our culture is an honour.
