National firm celebrates its diverse and inclusive business community
TORONTO, Jan. 16, 2018 /CNW/ - After a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®, Grant Thornton LLP is proud to announce their recognition as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Inclusion in Canada.
The list of the 25 Best Workplaces for Inclusion is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®.
Analysis of the data used to compile this list focused on the following considerations:
- For eligibility, companies must be Great Place to Work™ in the past year, and at least 90% of employees must agree they are treated fairly regardless of personal characteristics (such as gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation).
- GPTW determined the BEST based on employee responses to inclusion-related Trust Index statements and the organization's workplaces programs and practices that support inclusion.
Grant Thornton is committed to leading inclusively by creating an environment where talented professionals, who share the firm's values, will thrive both professionally and personally. The firm also embraces the important benefits it can bring to clients, colleagues and communities, in particular through:
- recruitment activities
- talent development
- key client resourcing; and
- opportunities for learning and open dialogue
"This recognition is a shining example of our commitment to providing an inclusive culture across all our offices in Canada," says Dawne-Marie Macleod, Partner, Chair – Leading Inclusively Leadership Council. "We want an environment where our people and communities can flourish and that's why we have created a culture where individuals feel inspired to be their best, empowered to play to their strengths, and capitalize on their differences."
