TORONTO, Nov. 7, 2017 /CNW/ -- Great Place to Work® Institute Canada has named Morningstar Research Inc. (Morningstar Canada), a subsidiary of independent investment research provider Morningstar, Inc. (NASDAQ: MORN), to the 2017 list of Best Workplaces in Financial Services and Insurance.
Morningstar Canada received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®. The list of the 20 Best Workplaces in Financial Services and Insurance is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®.
"Morningstar Canada is proud to be named one of the best workplaces in the financial services and insurance industry for 2017," said Scott Mackenzie, president and CEO of Morningstar Canada. "We are very excited that this comes in the same year we placed ninth on the 'Best Workplaces in Canada' ranking. These recognitions are a testament to our ongoing efforts to promote diversity and inclusion in our workplace."
The list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is also compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. In April, Morningstar Canada was named to the list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" for the fifth consecutive year. The competition process is based on two criteria: a survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; and an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of human resources 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.
