The City of Toronto has received a Greater Toronto’s Top Employers award for the fourth year in a row for offering an exceptional place to work, as announced today.

“It is an honour to once again receive this award in addition to our Canada’s Top 100 Employer recognition last month,” said City Manager Peter Wallace. “Creating a positive workplace culture and fostering innovation is important to staying competitive in the job market and attracting and retaining the best talent.”

The 12th annual Greater Toronto’s Top Employers competition is organized by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine employers whose workplace operations and human resources practices offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs and create the best work environment. 

The areas of evaluation for Greater Toronto Employers are physical workplace; work atmosphere and social; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.
