TORONTO, Dec. 8, 2014 /CNW/ - Corby Spirit and Wine Ltd. is proud to announce that it has been selected as one of Greater Toronto's Top 100 Employers for 2015. This is the first year Corby has entered the prestigious competition, which annually recognizes employers in the GTA who offer exceptional workplaces for their employees. The list appeared today in a special magazine published in The Globe and Mail.
This award closely follows Corby's most recent recognition as a Great Place to Work in Canada, a designation that it has earned for the last three years in a row. These accolades are a tribute to the company's focus on continually improving its culture, growing its people, and creating a workplace where everyone brings their best each day.
"Corby is one of the top companies on this list because of the passion of its people," says Paul Holub, VP of Human Resources. "At Corby, we are committed to providing employees with the opportunities, resources and benefits they need to be successful – and this award is a strong indicator that we continue to meet that commitment. I'm very proud that we've been selected as one of Greater Toronto's Top 100 Employers, proving that we are a leader when it comes to attracting and retaining top talent."
Headquartered in the heart of downtown Toronto, Corby Spirit and Wine, along with its Windsor-based sister company Hiram Walker & Sons Ltd., provides employment for nearly 450 individuals across the country. With a history that extends back 150 years in Canada, Corby is committed to creating a company of leaders where employees are both challenged and supported to reach their full potential.
Organizations entered in the Top 100 competition are judged on several categories including physical workplace; work atmosphere and social; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
