TORONTO, ON, Oct. 10, 2012 – Xerox Canada has been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers by Mediacorp Canada Inc. for the second consecutive year in recognition of its commitment to inspiring employees through progressive employment practices and beneficial employee programs.
Now entering its 13th year, Canada's Top 100 Employers is an annual competition to recognize Canada's best places to work. The list highlights the companies and organizations that lead their industries in attracting and retaining employees.
“It is an honour to receive this distinction and be differentiated in such a positive way,” said Martine Normand, Vice President, Human Resources, Xerox Canada. “It is a great reflection of the work we are doing as an organization and it validates that we are on the right path as an employer, continuously seeking to create the most meaningful experience for our employees and demonstrating values that resonate with our customers.”
To develop this year's Top 100 list, Mediacorp examined the recruitment histories of more than 75,000 employers across Canada that it tracks for its popular job search site, Eluta.ca. From this initial group, Mediacorp invited 15,000 of the fastest-growing employers to apply, plus another 5,000 companies and organizations in industries that it wanted to examine more closely. Employers completed an extensive application process that included a detailed review of their operations and Human Resources practices. More than 3, 250 employers started this year's application process and the final applicant pool was up over last year's total, which was also a record.
To determine the final list, Mediacorp’s editors reviewed and scored each employer based on eight key areas: Physical Workplace; Work Atmosphere and Social; Health, Financial and Family Benefits; Vacation and Time Off; Employee Communications; Performance Management; Training and Skills Development; and Community Involvement. These criteria have remained consistent since the inception of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project.
