London, ON - October 29th, 2010 - StarTech.com is pleased to be named among the Top 50 Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada. StarTech.com ranked number 36 on 2011 list, marking the second time it has been named to the list of Top 50 Small and Medium Employers in Canada. The study is now in its sixth year.
“StarTech.com celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2010 and it has truly been a historic and amazing year for the company. We are truly honoured to be named one of the Top 50 Small and Medium Employers in Canada once again. This achievement is a testament to the outstanding team of people we have here at StarTech.com and the positive work environment we have worked hard to create,” said Paul Seed, StarTech.com’s President & CEO.
“We just completed a rebranding of the company and are continuing to grow rapidly both here in London and in our global operations. This prestigious designation will assist us in attracting top talent and retain the great people we currently have at StarTech.com. We would not be so successful as a company if it were not for the great team we have here at StarTech.com. Being recognized as a top employer in Canada just serves to reinforce that belief,” continued, Mr. Seed.
Becoming a Top Best Small and Medium Employer is a very detailed and competitive process. This national awards program recognizes top employers with between 50 and 400 employees. This study mirrors the renowned Best Employer in Canada initiative run by partner, AonHewitt; however, caters to smaller businesses.
The rankings are primarily determined using the results from Employee Opinion Surveys. Here, 21 key engagement drivers are detailed and analyzed. The evaluation process also includes the assessment of organizational practices and perspectives from the leadership team. This year, more than 160 companies across Canada were involved in the process.
Study partners include Queen's School of Business, Queen’s Centre for Business Venturing and AonHewitt. More information about the Best Small & Medium Employers in Canada is available online at www.qcbv.com.
