TORONTO, April 26, 2019 /CNW/ - Leading Canadian accounting and business advisory firm, Grant Thornton LLP, is honoured to be recognized as one of Canada's Best Workplaces. This marks the 12th year that the firm has received this recognition.
"We're very proud to be one of Canada's Best Workplaces. Culture is my number one priority, and I never take this recognition for granted. We're very fortunate to have wonderful colleagues who work hard every day, and are committed to building our exceptional culture," says Kevin Ladner, CEO and Executive Partner, Grant Thornton LLP.
The list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled by Great Place to Work® Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a survey completed by employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth audit of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of the core values and philosophies that underpin its people practices.
This process 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.
"We're thrilled to be named one of Canada's Best Workplaces once again," says Sharon Healy, Chief People & Culture Officer, Grant Thornton LLP. "This recognition means a lot to our people, and is a reflection of how they feel about being a part of the Grant Thornton team."
