Aon Hewitt has released its 2011 list of Best Employers in Canada and Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada.
“Even though participation in the studies increased this year, a number of the organizations that appear on the 2011 Best Employers lists have achieved this status before,” said Neil Crawford, Aon Hewitt’s national Best Employers studies leader in a press release. “These employers didn’t waiver in their commitment to sustaining and improving high employee engagement, even during tough economic times. They weathered the recession thanks in large part to a highly productive workforce focused on organizational success. The fact that these employers appear again on the 2011 lists indicates that their employees are still very committed to the organization, despite having more options available to them in a post-recession economy.”
There are also close to 20 organizations that have been named Best Employers this year for the first time. “Some of these employers have participated in prior years and have been on the journey to high employee engagement,” stated Crawford. “By using the study results to pinpoint exactly where they needed to make changes to their human resources policies, programs and practices, these organizations have been able to boost their employees’ engagement. They’re now enjoying the benefits of high engagement, including lower turnover, less absenteeism, greater employee productivity, and higher customer satisfaction.”
