ETOBICOKE, ON, April 17, 2014 /CNW/ - CDW Canada, a leading provider of technology solutions in the public and private sectors, has been recognized by the Great Place to Work® Institute as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada for the fifth year in a row. This list, and related stories, appeared today in a special national report in The Globe and Mail.
"We're thrilled to be recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada for the fifth consecutive year," said Mary Ann Yule, Vice President and General Manager, CDW Canada. "This is a true honour, especially as our coworkers have played such an important part in this achievement. Our coworkers are passionate about helping us serve and delight our customers and we owe much of our success to them and their ability to be the best at what they do, every day."
In addition to this great accomplishment, CDW Canada has had much to celebrate in the past year, including becoming a publicly-traded company, celebrating a 10-year anniversary in Canada and becoming the number one solution provider in Canada as determined by Computer Dealer News (CDN), to name a few.
This list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a 58-statement survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
This year's list received over 300 nominations and over 60,000 employees participated in the 2014 "Best Workplaces in Canada" survey.
