The “Best Workplaces in Canada 2013” list is published as part of a national report developed by The Great Place to Work® Institute. In identifying what makes a great place to work, the Institute looks at five dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. They researched more than 300 Canadian companies ranging in size from 50 to 50,000 employees from all sectors. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a 58-statement survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures.
