November 21, 2022 – Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2023 were announced today by Mediacorp Canada Inc. (which organizes the annual competition), adding that this year’s employers “are leading by listening; tapping into employee feelings and sentiments about the many challenges of the past year”.

“Employers are trying to find their footing in unfamiliar territory,” said Richard Yerema, Mediacorp. “There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach for hybrid and remote work. Agility and willingness to learn from feedback and try something new is what differentiates this year’s winners.”

Along with managing the return to the workplace, organizations have doubled-down on their efforts to support health and wellness, organizers add, which ranges from enhanced programming and resources to increased coverage for mental health services, and providing access to mindfulness and meditation apps.

Several electrical industry players can be found among these 2023 honorees: ABB Canada, Schneider Electric Canada Inc., 3M Canada Company, and Emera.

“Today, employee wellness goes beyond physical and is more about building a culture of physical, emotional, financial and social well-being. That’s why ABB has put in place initiatives and programs to meet the needs of our workforce and ensure they can evolve in a safe and healthy environment,” said Katie Bessette of ABB Canada, one of the companies recognized.

“We are honoured to have this spotlight shine on our company’s efforts to promote equity, diversity, inclusion, safety and well-being across the organization,” said Claire Guichard of Schneider Electric Canada, another honoree. “This award is dedicated to our top-talent workforce that makes us a proud top employer in Canada!”

Employers are judged against eight criteria: Physical Workplace; Work Atmosphere and Social; Health, Financial & Family Benefits; Vacation and Time Off; Employee Communications; Performance Management; Training and Skills Development; Community Involvement.

Any employer—of any size, private or public—with its head office or principal place of business in Canada may enter the competition.
