For the 11th consecutive year, Bennett Jones has been ranked as one of Alberta's Top Employers. This special designation recognizes the province’s employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. This year's awards focus on how leading employers are doubling down on looking after their employees and supporting the communities where they operate.
Here are some of the reasons why Bennett Jones was selected once again as one of Alberta's Top Employers:
- Bennett Jones encourages employees to prioritize their health and well-being with monthly "Life Lines" newsletters on topics related to improving quality of life and a mental health practitioner benefit of $1,500 annually.
- Bennett Jones supports employees who are new parents with maternity and parental leave top-up payments, varying by employee group, and offers a variety of flexible working arrangements to help new parents balance work and their family commitments.
- Along with helping employees save for the future, Bennett Jones offers a year-end bonus program to let everyone share in the firm's success, as well as referral bonuses for individuals who help recruit friends (to $1,500 per successful candidate).
Alberta's Top Employers are evaluated based on the same criteria as Canada's Top 100 Employers national competition—physical workplace; work atmosphere & social; health, financial & family benefits; vacation & time off; employee communications; performance management; training & skills development; and community involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
