About Best Workplaces in Canada
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 survey completed by all full-time employees; and the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization's 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. Over 300 organizations participated in this year's national competition.
