Morneau Shepell and The Globe and Mail to announce category winners on March 20
TORONTO, Feb. 15, 2018 /CNW/ - Today, Morneau Shepell and The Globe and Mail announced 53 Employee Recommended Workplaces for 2018, in the second annual Employee Recommended Workplace Award. These organizations have achieved high standards for healthy workplaces, as reported by their employees, and have earned to right to use the Employee Recommended Workplace badge in their communication material to identify them as employers of choice.
Among this group, winners in 12 business categories, representing organizations from across Canada, will be announced on March 20 at an awards ceremony to be held at The Globe and Mail Centre in Toronto. The category winners will also be profiled nationally in The Globe and Mail, Canada's leading publisher brand.
The Employee Recommended Workplace Award recognizes excellence in achieving a healthy, engaged and productive workforce. It is the only award of its kind that is based entirely on feedback from employees. Employees were asked to complete a short confidential survey that includes questions about their physical and mental health, as well as aspects of their work and life – all elements of Total Health that impact employee engagement and productivity. On completion, they received a personal assessment that identified potential areas for improvement. Organizations received a summary report that identified areas of strength and areas where more work may be needed to improve the health of their workforce.
"Organizations that ensure their employees' health is a top priority see a positive return on productivity, engagement and improved business results," said Stephen Liptrap, President and CEO, Morneau Shepell. "We are pleased to see these employers being recognized by their employees for their efforts in creating a healthy workplace."
"It is very encouraging to see the growth of this program since its inception last year. The increase in participants demonstrates that many Canadian companies, like The Globe and Mail, understand the value of employee health in creating strong and innovative workforces," said Phillip Crawley, Publisher and Chief Executive Officer, The Globe and Mail. "We congratulate the organizations that have achieved this honour and look forward to celebrating together next month."
The list of the 53 Employee Recommended Workplaces for 2018 is provided below.
