McGill University was recently named a winner in the competition for Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures of 2012. McGill was a winner in the Broader Public Sector. Last year, McGill won at the regional level.
“We are proud to rank among Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures of 2012. A university is defined by its people: students, faculty, professionals, administrative and support staff. Thanks to their contribution, McGill thrives on a culture of excellence and service to society,” said Lynne B. Gervais, Associate Vice-Principal (Human Resources).
The award, managed by Waterstone Human Capital, recognizes the importance of great workplaces, where culture has helped enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage. Winning organizations were measured on five criteria: vision and leadership; cultural alignment, measurement and sustainability; rewards, recognition and innovative achievements; organizational performance; and institutional social responsibility.
Submissions were reviewed by a board of governors comprising some 30 top executives from the private and public sectors from across Canada, most of whom represent an organization that is a past winner of the program. Waterstone Human Capital is an executive search firm specializing in recruiting and cultural assessment.
