Seventy-five organizations recognized as Employee Recommended Workplaces for 2019

Morneau Shepell and The Globe and Mail to announce category winners on March 19

TORONTO, Feb. 7, 2019 /CNW/ - Today, Morneau Shepell and The Globe and Mail announced 75 Employee Recommended Workplaces for 2019, in the third annual Employee Recommended Workplace Award. The selected organizations have achieved high standards for healthy workplaces, as reported by their employees, and have earned the right to use the Employee Recommended Workplace badge in their communications materials to identify them as employers of choice.

From this group, winners in 12 business categories, representing organizations from across Canada, will be announced on March 19 at The Globe and Mail Solving Workplace Challenges Summit to be held at The Globe and Mail Centre in Toronto. The category winners will also be profiled nationally in The Globe and Mail, Canada's leading news media organization. 

The Employee Recommended Workplace Award recognizes excellence in achieving a healthy, engaged and productive workforce. It is the only award of its kind that is based entirely on feedback from employees. Employees were asked to complete a short confidential survey, from which they received a personal assessment identifying potential areas for improvement across all elements of Total Health – physical, mental, work and life. Participating organizations also received a summary report on the health of their workforce, identifying areas of strength and opportunities for improvement in HR planning.

"As more workplaces focus on employee health and well-being, it's reassuring to see a wide range of employers represented in the 2019 Employee Recommended Workplaces, including organizations of all sizes, from all corners of Canada and from both the private and public sectors," said Stephen Liptrap, president and chief executive officer, Morneau Shepell. "We are proud to partner with the Globe and Mail to recognize employers who are succeeding in this space and to inspire others to improve their offering in employee wellness."

"It's encouraging to know that employee well-being is being discussed more openly in the workplace and to see an increase in the number of employers making this a priority each year," said Phillip Crawley, publisher and chief executive officer, The Globe and Mail. "We look forward to recognizing the great work of the winners on March 19, 2019, and we are excited to see this program continue growing for the years to come."

The list of the 75 Employee Recommended Workplaces for 2019 is provided below.
