Job site Indeed released its first-ever list of the 25 best places to work in Canada Tuesday – a list which is dominated by financial institutions, airlines and health-care providers.
“If you look at the top five on the list… it is fairly diverse and if you go down to the bottom of the list, there are a lot of Canadian financial institutions,” says Jodi Kasten, managing director at Indeed Canada. “So I think what this list is telling us is that Canadian job seekers are really interested in a place of work that is all about [workplace] culture and how the environment makes them feel and that came through in a lot of the comments we read.”
The list was constructed based on employee reviews of over 600,000 members on Indeed’s website which scored based on five categories:
Indeed Canada的管理总经理Jodi Kasten说“如果你看看名单上的前五名，会发现它是相当多样化的，如果接着向下看下去，就会出现很多加拿大金融机构。因此，我认为这份榜单告诉我们的是，加拿大求职者真正感兴趣的工作场所跟这个工作所有的工作文化相关，以及工作环境带给他们什么样的额感受，这在我们收到的很多评论中都得到了体现。”
Pay and benefits
Opportunities within the company
Management and culture
In order to make the top 25 list, the company had to have had at least 50 employee reviews.
According to Kasten, company reviews have a big impact on where job seekers choose to apply, and what this list tells us is that if companies want to stand out, they need to invest in their reputation and employee experience.“I think what employers can do is really think about what’s important and relevant for their employees in their industry and how they can create a work environment and culture where people are happy and engaged,” Kasten says.
Without further ado, here are the top 25 places to work for in Canada according to Indeed.
