Becoming a Best Small and Medium Employer is a very detailed and competitive process. This national awards program recognizes top employers with between 50 and 399 employees. The program mirrors the renowned Best Employer in Canada list published in Maclean’s Magazine, however, caters to smaller businesses.
The rankings are primarily determined by using the results from Employee Opinion Surveys. The evaluation process also includes the assessment of organizational practices and perspectives from the leadership team. This year, more than 200 organizations across Canada participated in the study.
Study partners include Queen's School of Business, Queen’s Centre for Business Venturing and AON Hewitt. More information about the Best Small & Medium Employers in Canada is available online at https://bsmestudycanada.com.
