Canada's Top 100 Employers 2011 with Full List

Amidst daily news of Canada's modest economic growth, there is a remarkable group of far-sighted employers that are offering lessons to other Canadian employers in creating exceptional places to work.

These forward-thinking employers are treating the current economic slowdown as a rare opportunity to strengthen their organizations and pull ahead of others in their industries -- and nowhere is this better illustrated than in today's release of the 2011 winners of the Canada's Top 100 Employers competition by Mediacorp Canada Inc.

Now entering its 12th year, the Canada's Top 100 Employers competition is an editorial project organized by Mediacorp Canada Inc., a specialty publisher of employment guides and periodicals.  To develop this year's list, Mediacorp editors examined the recruitment histories of over 75,000 employers across Canada that it tracks for its popular job search site, Eluta.ca.  From this initial group, Mediacorp invited 10,000 of the fastest-growing employers to apply, plus another 2,500 companies and organizations in industries its editors wanted to examine more closely.  Employers completed an extensive application process that included a detailed review of their operations and HR practices.  Over 2,750 employers started this year's application process.

The Canada's Top 100 Employers project is unique in that its editors publish detailed reasons explaining why each winner is selected, providing transparency and guidance for job-seekers and employers.  These reasons are published exclusively on Eluta.ca, where they can be read free of charge.  Each winner is graded by Mediacorp editors on eight key areas: (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 project's inception in 1999.
