One grocer and nine CPG companies were recognized among "Canada's Top 100 Employers" 2022.
Loblaw Companies Limited, Cascades, Danone Canada, Hershey, Kellogg Canada, Keurig Canada, Mondelēz International, Oppenheimer Group, PepsiCo Canada and Procter & Gamble were among the 100 corporate winners.
Now in its 22nd year, the Canada's Top 100 Employers project is a national competition to determine which employers lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces for their employees.
Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers using eight criteria, which have remained consistent since the project’s inception: (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. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
"The winners of this year's competition stepped up and listened to what their workforce needed, to what their communities needed and responded. They continue to set the standard for doing business in Canada with best practices. These are the organizations that adversity made stronger," stated writer Diane Jemyn in a November 12 article in the Globe and Mail on the official announcement of the winners.
Several industry companies have been recognized in previous years. These include Cascades, Danone Canada, Kellogg Canada, Keurig Canada, Loblaw, Mondelēz, PepsiCo Canada, Procter & Gamble, who were recognized in the 2021 Canada's Top 100 Employers, and many of these companies were also on the 2020 list.
