Great Place to Work Canada 2017

Phoenix Contact Canada is recognized as one of this year’s Best Workplaces in Canada, and as well, we are proud to announce that our organization has also been named to the 2017 list of Best Workplaces in Manufacturing.

The 2017 Best Workplaces in Canada list is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

This year’s list received over 400 registrations and over 60,000 employees participated in the 2017 “Best Workplaces in Canada” survey. 

The list of the ten Best Workplaces in Manufacturing is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®. The data has a 90% confidence and a plus or minus 5% margin of error.  

Analysis of the data to compile this list focused on the following considerations:

  • For eligibility, companies certified in the past year with manufacturing operations in Canada.
  • Minimum 90% positive response to the statement “This is a physically safe place to work”.
  • Overall Trust Index score of eligible organizations.
