The 100 Best Employers in Canada for 2022

Good business practices should not be left unnoticed.

Instead, they should be celebrated to encourage more companies to follow suit.

This is exactly what Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition aims to achieve.

What is Canada’s Top 100 Employers?

Canada’s Top 100 Employers is a national-level competition that has been in existence for 22 years.

The main purpose of this contest is to determine which employers in Canada are the best in terms of offering outstanding workplace conditions for their employees.

How are the Competitors Selected?

The editors evaluate the candidates for Canada’s Top 100 Employers.

These editors use 8 evaluation criteria that have been used since the start of the project.

These criteria include:

  • Community involvement
  • Training & Skills Development
  • Performance Management
  • Employee Communications
  • Vacation & Time Off
  • Health, Financial, & Family Benefits
  • Work Atmosphere & Social
  • Physical Workplace

Employers are then compared with other organizations that belong in the same field to identify which one has the most forward-thinking and progressive programs.

What is the Reason Behind the Selection?

Why is this a selection for these employers in the first place?

Every year during the fall season, The Globe and Mail will announce the contest winners from the previous year.

The main reason behind the contest is to provide transparency.

At the same time, it aims to raise the bar so that other employers can know and imitate the good practices of the competition winners.

Who is Eligible to Join the Contest?

Suppose you are wondering about what requirement you will need to apply for this contest.

In that case, you will be glad to know that there is only one eligibility requirement and that is for an employer to have its head office be located within Canada.

This means that any employer with a principal place of business in Canada, regardless of whether they are private or public or big or small, can join the national competition.

The Upcoming 2023 Competition

The application for the 2023 competition will be open in the early months of 2022.

The winners for this will be announced in The Globe and Mail fall 2022 issue.
