MONTREAL, Nov. 13, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Bath Fitter has taken respect and inclusivity in the workplace to a whole new level this year. The 2019 Best Workplaces™ in Canada have been announced and Bath Fitter has received awards in the categories: Inclusion, Mental Wellness, Millennials and Women, as well as being recognized as one of the Best Workplaces™ in both Saint Eustache, Quebec and all of Quebec.
"To be recognized by the Great Place to Work® Institute in six separate categories, from a field of over 400 companies, is an incredible achievement," says, Sophia Nardelli, Vice-President, Human Resources. "This is a rigorous certification process that combines in-depth review of the organization's culture and the confidential feedback of employees. Since our formation in 1984, Bath Fitter has always felt like a family, and I feel proud that after all these years, our company has maintained the trust and respect that comes with being part of a family, even though we are now 4,500 employees-strong."
To be certified as one of Canada's Best Workplaces™, Bath Fitter had to achieve a passing score from employee surveys, as well as demonstrate clear corporate action aimed at achieving fairness and respect in each category. For example, to be recognized as a Best Workplace™ for Women, at least 90 per cent of Bath Fitter's staff had to agree that their workplace is safe and that people are treated fairly regardless of their gender, as well as have programs and practices in place that promote the fair treatment and advancement of women. The Inclusion award required 90 per cent of employees to confirm that they are treated fairly, regardless of personal characteristics, such as gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation. The Mental Wellness award required at least 80 per cent of employees had to agree that their workplace is psychologically and emotionally healthy and that a range of high-quality programs exist that encourage this.
For millennials, Bath Fitter had to demonstrate that at least 30 per cent of employees fit the millennial demographic, which means being born after 1980, and that at least 90 per cent felt that they are treated fairly regardless of their age. "This is the second year in a row that Bath Fitter has been recognized as one of Canada's Best Workplaces™ for Millennials," says Glenn Cotton, President and CEO, Bath Fitter. "The working environment of our employees has always been important to us and we want to continue this attitude as we expand into new markets in Europe; after all, our business is not just about selling tubs, but about making people happy, and that must extend to our staff as well as our customers."
