By Kavita Sabharwal-Chomiuk
ABB has been selected as one of Canada’s Best Employers by Forbes Magazine for the fourth year in a row. In 2020, ABB rose into 14th place (up from 26th in 2019). It also ranked in top spot within the industry category of “Semiconductors, Electronics, Electrical Engineering, Technology Hardware & Equipment.”
“The strength of any organization lies in its employees,” said Éric Deschênes, country managing director and head of electrification at ABB Canada. “At ABB, we know we are our best when our employees are engaged, valued and truly believe that they are making a difference, every day.”
In order to complete the ranking, Forbes surveyed 8,000 Canadians working for firms and institutions with over 500 employees and asked them to rate their employer on a scale of 1 to 10. Respondents were also asked to evaluate other employers in their industries that stood out.
“As we lead some of the most innovative projects in the world, we know our work environments need to be equally dynamic and sensitive to employee needs,” added Sylvie Bergeron, Vice-President, Human Resources at ABB Canada. “We are proud to be able to offer a stimulating work environment that brings out the best in our people.”
