Ten Best Companies to Work For

Recognizing fast-growing employers in Canada that offer exceptional working conditions and career advancement opportunities

Background
Now entering its tenth year, the Ten Best Companies to Work For competition is organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes fast-growing companies in Canada that offer tremendous career advancement opportunities together with leading-edge employee perks and benefits. We are honoured to have the Financial Post as our media partner on this list once again this year — their 1990 paperback, "The 100 Best Companies to Work For in Canada", was the first major work in our field in Canada.

Selection Process
Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers to determine which ones are growing fastest in their fields, in terms of revenue growth and the size of their workforce. Then our editors review their recruitment and retention policies using the same eight criteria as our national "Top 100" competition: (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. Fast-growing employers are compared to other companies in their industry to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.

Editorial Partner
Our editorial partner on this competition is the Financial Post, which is the business section of the National Post newspaper. Each year, the Financial Post announces our competition winners in a special supplement, which includes our reasons for selecting each employer. This year's winners were announced by the Financial Post on February 7, 2014 in a special newspaper supplement: Download (1.9 Mb PDF)

Eligibility Requirements
Unlike most of our other "top employer" projects, this competition is open only to private-sector employers. Companies must operate in Canada and disclose certain financial information, including annual revenue growth, to our editors. Employers must be growing quickly relative to other companies in their industry, both in terms of their revenues and number of employees. This competition is open to both publicly listed and privately held companies.

2015 Competition
Our 2015 winners will be announced in a special supplement to be published by the Financial Post early in 2015. Full editorial calendar »

How to Apply
Employers apply for this competition through the Canada's Top 100 Employers application process. Employers complete a single application package for both competitions. Request an application.

Annual Conference
To learn more about the competition, we invite you to join us at the Top Employer Summit, our annual conference on the Canada's Top 100 Employers project. This event lets you discover the latest best-practices from winners, meet competition organizers and writers, and hear inspiring stories from world-class speakers — all presented in a commercial-free format. The conference is Canada's largest annual event for senior-level HR professionals.
