McGill has been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2012, marking the fourth consecutive year that it has been included in this select group. The Canada’s Top 100 Employers project, now in its 13th year, is a national competition to determine which employers lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces for their employees.
The competition focuses 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.
« McGill strives to help its employees develop their skills while achieving a healthy balance in their work and personal lives. Those efforts are reflected in this and other surveys,” said Lynne B. Gervais, Associate Vice-Principal, Human Resources.
The 2012 winners were selected from more than 2,000 applicants, following a detailed review of their operations and human resources practices. A blue-ribbon academic advisory board drawn from universities across Canada oversees the selection criteria for each year’s competition.
Mediacorp Canada manages the competition. It is the nation’s largest publisher of employment periodicals and other HR tools. The company also manages the popular job search engine, Eluta.ca which lets job-seekers find new job postings directly from employer websites. The Eluta search engine monitors new job announcements at tens of thousands of employers across Canada every day.
