TORONTO, May 18, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - What brings a job seeker to choose a prospective employer over another? Molson Coors Canada seems to know the answer! The North-American brewer was ranked as 5th most attractive employer in Canada overall at the 2012 Randstad Awards, which were held in Toronto last night. The Randstad Awards recognize the most sought-after companies by Canadian workers and job seekers according to key drivers such as benefits, corporate culture and community involvement.
"This recognition is a reflection of our people's passion and commitment to building extraordinary beer brands and offering outstanding experiences to consumers across Canada", said Suzanne Niles, Chief People Officer, Molson Coors Canada, following the awards ceremony. "It is truly an honor we can be proud of and that I share with all our employees across the country."
Molson Coors came in first place in two categories, namely as the company that is most known to Canadians, and the one where the most Canadians would like to work. "There seems to be an aura that goes with working at Molson Coors, which likely stems from the strength of our brands, the extent of our commitment to Canadian communities and our 225-year legacy", added Suzanne Niles. "When you combine these factors, it's easy to understand why close to 20,000 people applied to work for us last year. Molson Coors Canada is simply an outstanding place to build a career!"
