TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - Ceridian, a global provider of human resource solutions, has been named one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for 2013, marking the tenth consecutive time the company has received this honour. The Canada Top 100 Employer annual list recognizes leadership in workplace benefits, engagement best practices and corporate social responsibility.
"Having achieved this honour again is an incredible accomplishment," says Dave MacKay, president, Ceridian Canada. "We pride ourselves on the strength of our culture and commitment to fulfilling the same human resource best practices that we consistently advise our clients to adopt. As an end-to-end Human Capital Management solutions provider, we're always striving for HR excellence."
The Mediacorp team looked for best practices and innovative approaches in eight key areas: Physical Workplace; Work Atmosphere & Social; Health, Financial & Family Benefits; Vacation & Time Off; Employee Communications; Performance Management; Training & Skills Development, and Community Involvement.
Some of the reasons why Ceridian was selected as a Canada Top 100 Employer for 2013 include the offer of family benefits such as maternity leave top-ups and extended health benefit coverage along with support of parents wishing to adopt a child. Alternative work practices such as flexible hours, telecommuting and a reduced summer hours set Ceridian's work life balance initiatives apart from the pack. In addition, the company's commitment to employee development via subsidies for tuition, professional accreditation, in-house training and career planning services was noted. Finally, Ceridian's multiple financial incentives including referral bonuses and contributions to a defined contribution pension plan solidified its placement as a Top 100 Employer in Canada in 2013.
"Our benefits offerings are a result of two-way communication and constant re-evaluation based on employee feedback and performance," adds MacKay. "We strive to implement programs that not only meet the needs of our workforce, but also help us connect with our employees in a meaningful way, helping us create true brand ambassadors who in turn re-enforce the fact that Ceridian is not only a great company to work with, but also a great place to work."
