Four Co-ops Make Top Employers List
Four co-operative organizations -- Gay Lea Foods Co-operative, Farmer's Cooperative Dairy, Co-operators Life Insurance and Vancity -- are on Mediacorp Canada's list of Top 100 employers for 2011.
The annual competition, which is in its 12th year, is based on such factors as physical workplace; work atmosphere; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.
To qualify for the competition, employers completed an extensive application process that included a detailed review of their operations and Human Resources policies. More than 2,750 employers started this year’s application process.
Mediacorp Canada is the country’s largest publisher of employer periodicals and guides. The company also operates the job search site Eluta.ca.
The winners were announced on October 15 in a supplement in the Globe and Mail.
