For the 7th year in a row, Randstad Canada has been recognized as a “Best Workplace in Canada” by the Great Place to Work ® Institute Canada (GPTW). Randstad is in 39th position on the prestigious list this year.
Once again, employee engagement is listed as a key criterion in the decision by GPTW.
“Employee engagement is not just a slogan at Randstad,” says Jan Hein Bax, president and country manager. “This organization sees its employees as its most valuable asset. Our staff are key to the ongoing success of the business and our ability to engage them speaks volumes about who we are and where we are going as the Canadian leader for staffing, recruitment and HR services.”
GPTW studies the world’s best workplaces and evaluates best practices that make them stand out from the crowd. GPTW develops its best workplace lists completely independently, without regard to any business relationships with individual companies. Its objective is to improve the quality of the workplace experience. GPTW believes that change can best be achieved by encouraging organizations to aspire to become their best. The approach is positive. By focusing on examples set by great workplaces, they spread the good news that any company anywhere can follow in their footsteps.
Randstad Canada continues to place a strong emphasis on employee development and training. The company strives to create a positive workplace where employees can realize their talents and career aspirations. It’s not just about “talking the talk.” This award proves that we can “walk the walk” too!
“We have great benefits and development programs here,” says Jan Hein Bax. “But it’s truly the culture of our organization that makes us such a great place to work. Creating a positive workplace environment is one of our core values. Everyone who works here is proud of the brand and works hard to ensure our commitment to excellence.”
More than 300 Canadian companies were nominated and more than 57,000 employees at those companies participated in the 2013 "Best Workplaces in Canada" survey.
