MONTREAL, Feb. 9, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Transat, one of the world's largest vertically integrated tour operators and Canada's leader in holiday travel, is proud to be considered among the best employers in Montreal. The tour operator received this mention following the annual Canada's Top 100 employers competition, presented by Toronto publishing company Mediacorp Canada, which recognizes employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces. Companies are evaluated on criteria like workplace and work atmosphere, employee communications, training and skills development, and health, financial and family benefits.
"The growth and success of a company are, to a large extent, the result of the commitment and long-term loyalty of its employees. At Transat, this combination is an essential element of all our achievements. We prioritize recognition and development of human resources programs that allow our employees to grow and prosper in keeping with our three fundamental values: respect, rigour and responsibility," declared Christophe Hennebelle, Vice-President, Human Resources and Talent Management at Transat.
According to Mediacorp Canada, Transat is distinguished mainly by its pension plan, work practices promoting work-life balance, programs and subsidies allowing employees to keep their skills up to date, as well as support so that they can grow within the company. Companies like Bell Canada, Desjardins Group, L'Oréal Canada, McGill University and Zodiac Aerospace are among this year's winners.
