OTTAWA, Feb. 9, 2012 /CNW/ - Queen's University School of Business and Profit Magazine have recognized McMillan as one of Canada's 50 Best Small and Medium Employers.
"I've always tried to create the very best work environment for my
employees," said Gordon McMillan, president of the agency. "Because these rankings are determined
by the results of employee opinion surveys, this honour is particularly
special for us. It means that McMillan employees aren't just here to pay the bills; they're here because
they love where they work and what they do."
McMillan recently asked friends and family of its employees what they
think goes on at the agency. The result is the following video—which is
being released to coincide with the announcement of this Top 50
recognition. You can view it now at mcmillanagency.com.
About the Award
Becoming a Best Small and Medium Employer is a very detailed and
competitive process. It mirrors the renowned Best Employer in Canada
initiative run by Hewitt Associates; however, it focuses on businesses
with between 50 and 400 employees. In addition to employee opinion
surveys, the evaluation process also includes the assessment of
organization practices and perspectives from the leadership team. Study
partners include Queen's University Centre for Business Venturing and
Aon Hewitt, the global human resource consulting and outsourcing
business of Aon Corporation. More information about the Best Small and
Medium Employers in Canada is available at http://business.queensu.ca/qcbv/sme.
McMillan is a creative agency that focuses on two things: taking brands
from where they are to where they ought to be; and developing and
delivering integrated marketing campaigns that make sales and marketing
VPs smile. McMillan works with a portfolio of national and international clients
including CA Technologies, Hitachi Data Systems, Siemens Enterprise
Communications, Ontario Medical Association, Intuit, Canada Post,
Domicile Developments, and Export Development Corporation.
