“Becoming a ‘Best Workplace in Canada’ was not the goal for our company,” explains Rittal. “What we struck out to do was to highly differentiate ourselves in our industry by becoming the best company to work with!”
Organizations on this year’s list were ranked using the results of an employee survey—the Trust Index, developed by global research firm Great Place to Work Institute. This methodology is used by over 6000 organizations in almost 50 countries each year, making it the most widely adopted workforce satisfaction tool in the world.
“We are excited to once again receive this recognition,” said Avi Kahn, president and general manager, Hilti Canada. “Being a great place to work is at the heart of our culture, so when we are appreciated by our team members and an organization like Great Place to Work, we appreciate that.”
“Regardless of size, industry or the current economic climate, each of these organizations has discovered that trust is the foundation for quality jobs and performance excellence,” say the folks at Great Place to Work Institute.
