Employees' Choice Awards reception 2012-13
In total, 10 companies are being honoured with Employees' Choice Awards, a program organized by Ottawa Business Journal, the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce and Talentmap.
To participate, local organizations are invited to launch confidential employee engagement surveys, which measure their perceptions of managers and senior leaders, opportunities for personal and professional growth as well as overall job satisfaction.
Participating organizations must have at least 30 employees and achieve a statistically relevant response level. The recipients are selected based on hundreds of employee surveys.
“There is no better way to find Ottawa’s top workplaces than by directly asking their employees for feedback,” says OBJ publisher Michael Curran. "These employers have found creative ways to connect with their employees and have achieved an enviable level of engagement.”
The recipients are:
A Hundred Answers
Collins Barrow Ottawa LLP
CORADIX Technology Consulting
Giant Tiger Stores
Paul Rushforth Real Estate
Profiles of the recipients will be published in OBJ's print edition on Jan. 20. Recipients will be feted at the Lago Bar and Grill on Jan. 29. Details can be found at employeeschoice.ca.
