TORONTO, Nov. 4, 2014 /CNW/ - Canadian Tire Corporation, Limited, (CTC) is proud to announce that it has been named one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for 2015 by Mediacorp Canada Inc. This is the first year the prestigious honour has been awarded to CTC, recognizing the Company for its strong leadership, commitment to community and unique employee engagement initiatives.
"It's truly an honour to be recognized as one of Canada's top employers," said Doug Nathanson, SVP, Chief Corporate Strategy & Human Resources Officer. "At CTC, we hire the best of the best and are committed to creating a work environment as unique as its people. We've gone to great lengths to ensure our employees have access to leading career development and training programs and a workplace that keeps them engaged and excited."
This past year marked many unique employee activations across the organization, which grew employees' pride of the Canadian Tire brand. From supporting athletes on their journey to the podium through our partnership with the Canadian Olympic Committee, to helping get kids active through Jumpstart and ACTIVE AT SCHOOL, CTC employees became more engaged in their work and were reminded of why they show up every day – to celebrate and provide what customers need for "Life in Canada."
"Canadian Tire has continued to grow in an increasingly competitive retail landscape and across the organization there is a renewed energy and excitement," continued Nathanson. "At the end of the day, it is the passion shared by employees that strengthens the Company and makes it a top employer."
