Hamilton-Niagara's Top Employers

Profiling the employers in the Hamilton-Niagara area that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work

Background
Now entering its eighth year, Hamilton-Niagara's Top Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes the employers in the Hamilton-Niagara area of Ontario that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. Our 2014 winners were announced in a special wrap-around feature (PDF 2.7 Mb) published on November 25, 2013 by The Hamilton Spectator.

Selection Process
Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers using the same eight criteria as the national 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. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.

Editorial Partner
The Hamilton Spectator is our editorial partner on the Hamilton-Niagara's Top Employers project and announces the winners each year in a special feature each fall. Our 2014 winners were announced in the Spectator on November 25, 2013.

Eligibility Requirements
Any employer with its head office or principal place of business in the Hamilton-Niagara area may apply for this competition. For ease of reference, we define this to include the cities of Hamilton and Burlington, plus the Regional Municipality of Niagara (including St. Catharines, Welland, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Niagara Falls and Fort Erie). Employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector.
