Tech Companies Rank High Among Best Canadian Places To Work

mini-orbyOne hundred companies are being recognized today as the Best Workplaces in Canada, and many of them belong to the technology industry. They represent great diversity in terms of size, sector, industry, and location. The judging panel? More than 50,000 Canadian employees.

Organizations on this year’s list were ranked using the results of an employee survey, the Trust Index©, developed by global research firm Great Place to Work® Institute. This methodology is utilized by over 6,000 organizations in over 45 countries each year, making it the most widely adopted workforce satisfaction tool in the world.

Regardless of size, industry or the current economic climate, each of these organizations has discovered that TRUST is the foundation for quality jobs and performance excellence. And the good news is that high-trust relationships require behaviours that can be learned and embedded into any organization’s culture.

Proven ROI– What’s more, organizational leaders who develop a high level of TRUST with their employees see stronger employee performance, often translating into stronger company performance.  The U.S. version of the survey (FORTUNE list) shows that, even in a difficult economy the best companies averaged 295% ROI from 1997-2011, according to independent research by the Russell Investment Group (2011).
