OSHAWA, ON (November 4, 2014) — GM Canada has been selected as one of Canada’s “Top 100 Employers” by Mediacorp Canada Inc. in its annual survey of Canadian businesses.  This is the fourth consecutive year that GM Canada has been included.

“All of GM Canada’s employees are working together to make GM the most valued automotive company by building great relationships both inside and outside GM and acting with integrity,” said Kevin Williams, president and managing director, GM Canada. “Our employees are encouraged to be accountable for results and driven to win.  Together we have all created a workplace where both what we achieve and how we achieve it matters.”

GM Canada was recognized for a number of important initiatives benefiting employees and their families including:

  • Career planning services and tools
  • Tuition assistance program
  • Professional association memberships
  • In-house apprenticeships and skilled trade training
  • Product evaluation program
  • teamGM recognition program
  • Employee health and wellness programs

The Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition is the largest editorial project of its kind in Canada, with thousands of employers taking part in each year’s application process. The distinguishing feature of the project is that its editors publish detailed reasons, providing transparency in the selection of winners and practical guidance for jobseekers about exceptional workplaces. Each employer is graded by Mediacorp editors on eight key areas: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere Social; (3) Health, Financial Family Benefits; (4) Vacation Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. The same eight criteria have been applied since the competition was launched 15 years ago.
