Bennett Jones has been ranked a 2016 Alberta's Top Employer, the 6th consecutive year the firm has been selected as a winning organization.
Alberta's Top Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes the Alberta employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. Employers are evaluated using criteria including health, financial & family benefits; training & skills development; work atmosphere; and physical workplace. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
Reasons why Bennett Jones was once again selected as an Alberta's Top Employer include:
- The firm supports employees who are new parents with maternity and parental leave top-up payments and provides an option to extend their leave into an unpaid leave of absence — additionally, the firm offers subsidies to help cover the costs of daycare.
- Employees enjoy a number of sponsored social events each year, including happy-hour Fridays that are hosted approximately four times throughout the year, a lawyer's ski weekend, staff appreciation celebrations and availability of the firm's private box for sporting events and concerts.
The editorial partners on the Alberta's Top Employers project are the Calgary Herald and Edmonton Journal. Both newspapers announce the winners each year in a special magazine, which appears in print and online, that include a summary of the editors' reasons for selection.
