Four companies were honoured this year with the Your Workplace Top Workplaces Where Employees Thrive award. The awards were presented on May 3 at the kick-off event for the two-day Your Workplace Conference, Being Engaged at Work at the International Centre in Toronto. A fifth company received an honourable mention.
Thirty-one companies were nominated; 18 of these met the criteria to be short-listed. Those 18 were invited to have their employees complete an online survey measuring employee engagement, administered by TalentMap. From these, the winners were determined by the judges based on overall results from nomination letters, letters of reference, and employee responses to the survey.
