TORONTO, April 26, 2018 /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 11th year that the firm has been recognized, ranking six overall.
"When I wake up in the morning, my most important priority at Grant Thornton is our culture," says Kevin Ladner, CEO and Executive Partner, Grant Thornton LLP. "I believe that the experience our clients have with our people is directly related to the experience our people have with the firm. At Grant Thornton we're committed to ensuring that both are exceptional."
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 recognized by Great Place to Work once again," says Sharon Healy, Chief People & Culture Officer, Grant Thornton LLP. "It's a measure of how our people feel and the environment that we create with and for each other every day."
At Grant Thornton we strive to be a purpose-driven team. We know that when we focus on helping our clients, colleagues and communities thrive, magic happens.
