Twelve Canadian organizations win Employee Recommended Workplace Awards

Morneau Shepell and The Globe and Mail announce 2019 category winners at the third annual conference and award ceremony

TORONTO, March 25, 2019 /CNW/ - On March 19, Morneau Shepell and The Globe and Mail announced the category winners of the third annual Employee Recommended Workplace Award at The Globe and Mail's Solving Workplace Challenges conference in Toronto. The winning organizations achieved the top Total Health scores in their categories, representing privately owned, public, not-for-profit and government sectors in small, mid-sized and large businesses. The category winners will be profiled nationally in The Globe and Mail on Friday, March 29.

The Employee Recommended Workplace Award recognizes excellence in achieving a healthy, engaged and productive workforce, and is the only award of its kind based entirely on feedback from employees. Employees completed a short confidential survey that includes questions about their physical and mental health, as well as aspects of their work and life – all elements of Total Health that impact employee engagement and productivity. On completion, organizations received a summary report that identified areas of strength and areas where more work may be needed to improve the health of their workforce.

• Private company:  Sklar Wilton & Associates (small)
 MDS Aero Support Corporation (mid-sized)

"Upholding a healthy and productive workplace can be a challenging feat for employers," said Stephen Liptrap, President and Chief Executive Officer, Morneau Shepell. "Workplace stress and isolation continue to affect employees at a higher rate each year, making it significantly more difficult for employers to achieve positive total well-being of all employees. The 2019 Employee Recommended Workplace Award recipients recognize that successfully supporting the physical, mental, work and life health of employees is critical to creating a healthy workplace culture and to improving the bottom line. We are excited to honour these industry-leading companies that are paving the way for employee well-being in Canada."  

"We're thrilled to see new and returning organizations represented in this year's awards. These companies are leading the way in prioritizing employee wellness," said Phillip Crawley, Publisher and Chief Executive Officer, The Globe and Mail. "We are delighted to recognize organizations that continue to uphold a high standard of employee well-being and congratulate all of the 2019 winners."
