... and you are invited to the November conference

About the competition
Now entering its 17th year, the Canadaâ€™s Top 100 Employers project is a national competition to determine which employers lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces for their employees. The 2016 winners were announced in November of last year.
Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canadaâ€™s Top 100 Employers using eight criteria; which have remained consistent since the projectâ€™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
(8) Community Involvement.
Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. Each fall, the winners are announced in a special feature published in The Globe and Mail. It includes a 'Reasons for Selection,' which provides transparency in the selection of winners and 'raises the bar' so that other employers can discover and adopt initiatives that work well elsewhere.
Any employer with its head office or principal place of business in Canada may apply for the national competition. Employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector.
Applications for the 2017 competition are available. The 2017 winners will be announced in The Globe and Mail this November. Join their mailing list to stay up to date, or to receive an application for the competition.
The conference is Canadaâ€™s largest annual event for senior-level HR professionals. It will be held Nov. 14-15 in Vancouver. Read more here.
