Maple Reinders Constructors appears on list of top Canadian employers

A new study puts Maple Reinders Constructors at number 44 among the Top 50 Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada.

The study, now in its fifth year, is run by Hewitt Associates through Queens University and was published in the Globe and Mail.

The national awards program recognizes top employers with between 50 and 400 employees and is based on the surveyed responses from employees. It mirrors the renowned Best Employer in Canada survey of companies with more than 400 employees. “Despite the challenging economic times, creating an environment in which employees feel engaged and valued is a top priority,” says Mike Reinders,president of Maple Reinders.

”Our top ranking is especially significant given that our employees themselves participated in this survey, with a great response rate of over 90%” Reinders says. “The results of the survey generated tremendous energy, pride and a positive atmosphere in the company, as well as an opportunity to identify areas for improvement.”

Maple Reinders' commitment to employees includes work/life balance initiatives designed to assist in integrating the responsibilities of work and the necessities of employees'personal lives.

Other programs and initiatives encompass wellness, career training and development, staff social events, community service opportunities, and reward programs.

This year, more than 120,000 employees from companies acrossCanada participated in the study, which involved Queen's School of Business, Queen's Centre for Business Venturing and Hewitt Associates.
