Dell Technologies, Keg Restaurants & Roche Among Top Canadian Employers

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 12, 2022 /CNW/ -- Glassdoor, the worldwide leader on insights about jobs and companies, has announced the winners of its annual Employees' Choice Awards, honoring the Best Places to Work in 2022 across Canada, the U.S. and three other countries. Unlike other workplace awards, the Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards are based on the input of employees who voluntarily provide anonymous feedback by completing a company review about their job, work environment and employer over the past year.

The Glassdoor Employees' Choice Awards feature six distinct categories, including honors for the Best Places to Work across Canada, UK, France and Germany and recognizing both large and small to medium companies in the U.S. In Canada, Glassdoor has revealed the 25 Best Places to Work (honoring employers with 1,000 or more employees). Winners are ranked based on their overall rating achieved during the past year. (Ratings based on a 5-point scale: 1.0=very dissatisfied, 3.0=OK, 5.0=very satisfied; Actual calculations extend beyond the thousandth decimal place).

"The world of work is rapidly evolving, fueled by the pandemic and now millions of workers reevaluating their expectations of employers. This year's Best Places to Work winners are leading the way by listening and responding to employee feedback and reimagining the employee experience to truly put their people first," said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor Chief Executive Officer. "It's inspiring to see these employers step up during the pandemic to expand and grow company cultures where employees feel supported and valued in and out of work. Congratulations to all of this year's Employees' Choice Award winners."

Notably, with the COVID-19 pandemic and an increased focus on remote work tech adoption, there are 12 tech employers on this year's list. Five of those employers are in the top ten, including Dell Technologies (4.4 rating), which received the number one spot and was featured on the Canada list for the first time this year. In total, there are sixteen employers that are new to the Canada list in 2022 including Roche (No. 3, 4.3), Ciena (No. 4, 4.3), Desjardins (No. 8, 4.2), Jazz Aviation (No. 10, 4.2), City of Mississauga Canada (No. 14, 4.1) and more.

This year, only four employers appear on all five country lists (Canada, U.S. large, UK, France, Germany): Google (No. 5, 4.3), SAP (No. 9, 4.2), Microsoft (No. 16, 4.1) and Salesforce (No. 22, 4.1).

When employees submit reviews about their employer on Glassdoor, they are asked to share their opinions on some of the best reasons to work for their employer (pros), any downsides (cons) and are encouraged to provide advice to management. In addition, employees are asked to rate how satisfied they are with their employer overall, rate their CEO as well as rate key workplace attributes like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, diversity and inclusion1, senior management and work-life balance. Employees are also asked whether they would recommend their employer to a friend and whether they believe their employer's six-month business outlook is positive, negative or if they have no opinion.

Among the nearly two million employers reviewed on Glassdoor, the average company rating is 3.7.

Employees' Choice Award winners for the Best Places to Work in Canada in 2022 are determined using Glassdoor's proprietary awards algorithm, and each employer's rating is determined based on the quantity, quality and consistency of Glassdoor-approved company reviews submitted by Canada-based employees between October 20, 2020 and October 18, 2021.  During the year-long eligibility period, employers considered must have received at least 25 ratings for each of the nine workplace attributes (overall company rating, career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, diversity and inclusion, senior management, work-life balance, recommend to a friend and six-month business outlook) taken into account as part of the awards algorithm. For reporting simplicity, ratings are displayed to the nearest tenth, though calculations extend beyond the thousandth decimal place to determine final rank order.
