For Eight Consecutive Years Business analytics firm strives to offer exceptional work/life balance for its employees
TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - SAS Canada, the leader in business analytics software and services, has been named one of Greater Toronto's Top Employers. Now entering its eighth year, The Greater Toronto's Top Employers list aims to determine which employers lead their industries by offering exceptional workplaces for their employees.
Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers using the same criteria as the national competition: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. These criteria have remained consistent since the inception of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project.
SAS Canada is one of the top companies on the list because of its commitment to environmental sustainability, wellness programs designed to keep their employees healthy, above grade employee benefits and community involvement.
"All over the world, SAS is celebrated for its exceptional culture and workplace environment and SAS Canada is no exception," said Carl Farrell President SAS Canada EVP SAS America's. "Continually striving to offer our employees an inspiring place to work is core to SAS' beliefs, and we remain committed to this goal."
