Bennett Jones has once again been ranked as an Alberta's Top Employer. This is the eighth consecutive year the firm has been selected as a winning organization. This special designation recognizes the province’s employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.
Here are some of the reasons why Bennett Jones was selected as one of Alberta's Top Employers. The firm:
- supports employees who are new parents with maternity and parental leave top-up payments, as well as the option to extend their leave into an unpaid leave of absence;
- supports a number of charitable initiatives each year and recently announced a $1-million multi-year donation for multiple sclerosis research—the firm also encourages employees to get involved with charitable organizations by providing paid time off to volunteer; and
- encourages employees to lead healthy, active lives with a fitness club subsidy, ranging from $300 to $450 per year.
Alberta's Top Employers evaluates employers in the province using the same criteria as the national Canada's Top 100 Employers competition. This includes physical workplace; work atmosphere and social; health, financial and family benefits; and training and skills development. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
