VANCOUVER, April 10, 2013 /CNW/ - LGM is being recognized as one of this year's Best Workplaces in Canada. This list, and related stories, will appear in a special national report on Wednesday April 10th, 2013 in The Globe and Mail.
LGM attributes the foundational strength of its core values as a fundamental reason for placement on this distinguished list. Integrity, Respect, Continuous Learning, Service Excellence and Giving Back are the principles that define the LGM's corporate culture and are demonstrated through employee behaviours. These core values help to create a dynamic and encouraging workplace and contribute to LGM's success in the marketplace.
"Employee engagement and satisfaction are the first measures of success in our corporate strategic objectives", says Adam Hill, Chief Executive Officer at LGM. "Let it not be understated that people definitely are a company's greatest asset. Our continued attention to employee development has proven a direct correlation to our business success, and positively shapes company culture. I'm extremely pleased with the development of our organization and proud to be recognized as a Great Place to Work for the sixth consecutive year."
This list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a 58-statement survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This 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.
This year's list received over 300 nominations and over 57,000 employees participated in the 2013 "Best Workplaces in Canada" survey.
