TORONTO - For 12 consecutive years, Bennett Jones has been ranked as one of the top 50 places to work in Canada. The "Best Employers in Canada" survey is conducted by AON Hewitt in partnership with Maclean's magazine.
For the second year in a row the survey has ranked Bennett Jones as the 3rd best place to work in Canada. It is the 9th consecutive year Bennett Jones has been in the top ten. Bennett Jones was again recently honoured as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for 2013.
"To receive this honour for 12 years running is a testament to the mutual respect and culture of excellence that our lawyers and staff bring to Bennett Jones", says Hugh MacKinnon, Chairman & CEO.
Organizations were selected as Best Employers based primarily on confidential surveys from more than 280,000 Canadian employees that measured their level of engagement. According to Aon Hewitt's definition, employees are engaged when they “say, stay and strive”: they speak positively about the organization to others, are committed to remaining with their current employer, and are motivated by their organizations' leaders, managers, culture and values to go “above and beyond” to contribute to business success.
“High employee engagement is crucial to the success of any organization, because it's connected to how productive employees are," said Neil Crawford, Aon Hewitt's leader of the Best Employers in Canada study. “We've found that employees who are highly engaged are less likely to call in sick, generate higher revenue and are less likely to leave – all key drivers of productivity. Simply put, higher engagement means better business results."
