Today, in a Globe and Mail special editorial feature, Mediacorp Canada Inc. announced that Bombardier Aerospace is one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2011.
Over 2,750 employers participated in the competition and provided a detailed review of their operations and human resources practices. Each company was graded on eight key areas: physical workplace; work and social atmosphere; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.
Employee engagement is central to Bombardier Aerospace’s success and has been measured each year since 2004. Based on the results of its comprehensive annual employee survey, managers, in collaboration with their teams, have been developing and implementing action plans designed to address improvement opportunities. This in turn has led to the introduction of many initiatives which have further fostered employee satisfaction, pride and motivation.
“This year, in the spirit of continuous improvement, we decided to compare our current practices with those of the most successful organizations in Canada,” said Guy C. Hachey, President and Chief Operating Officer, Bombardier Aerospace. “Being selected as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers recognizes the progress we have made in providing a rewarding environment for our employees, as well as our commitment to attract and retain the best talent,” he added.
Now in its 11th year, the Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition is an editorial project organized by Mediacorp Canada Inc., a specialty publisher of employment guides and periodicals.
