Got perks? Generous pension? Nap time? Canada's Top 100 Employers in
Maclean's this week

Research reveals plenty of benefits are available, despite the recession

PLUS: Stephen Harper talks to Maclean's about his musical makeover

TORONTO, Oct. 8 /CNW/ - Which employers offer flex hours? A beer cart? Generous pensions? A nap room? And why's the public sector all the rage these days? Get all the answers, and a lot more, by reading Maclean's Top 100 Employers.

For the ninth year running, Maclean's, in partnership with Toronto publisher Mediacorp, presents a revealing glimpse into the latest workplace trends-and into how Canada's best employers are making a difference for their employees. After all, even if the job landscape is grim, the competition among employers to attract top talent hasn't disappeared along with GDP growth. And the recession didn't make retaining motivated employees any less important to a productive workplace.

The Top 100 is a compendium of employers with whom the currently unemployed can strive to land a job, and then reap the benefits and perks.

    Some of Canada's Top 100 Employers 2009 are:

    -  Canada Post Corp. (postal services, Ottawa)
    -  N.B. Power (public electric utility, Fredericton)
    -  Loblaw Cos. Ltd. (grocery store chain, Brampton, Ont.)
    -  McGill University (university, Montreal)
    -  Halifax Herald Ltd. (newspaper publisher, Halifax)
    -  Royal B.C. Museum Corp. (provincial museum, Victoria)
    -  Sophos Inc. (spam and virus detection software, Vancouver)
    -  PCL Constructors Inc. (general contractor, Edmonton)
    -  Toronto-Dominion Bank (financial services, Toronto)
    -  Ceridian Canada Ltd. (human resources services, Winnipeg)

Stephen Harper talks to Maclean's about the Beatles, stage fright and his big musical debut. PLUS: It could have gone so badly, writes Ottawa bureau chief John Geddes. But, Harper's performance of With a Little Help from My Friends turned out to be arguably the lone unqualified example of an image-burnishing masterstroke in his political career to date. Was this a fluke, or the dawn of an era of a more human, more likeable Harper?
