Re: U of T selected as one of Canada’s Top Employers for 2012

I am very pleased to announce that for the fifth time, the University of Toronto has been named one of the top 100 employers in Canada. Chosen annually by Mediacorp Canada Inc., the Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition identifies organizations across the country with exemplary workplace policies and practices.

Over 2,700 organizations were involved in the 2012 competition and were rated on their performance in eight key areas: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work and Social Atmosphere; (3) Health, Financial and Family Benefits; (4) Vacation and Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; and (7) Training and Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement.

The full list of the 2012 winners can be found online at and is also published in a special editorial feature in today’s Globe and Mail.

Thanks to everyone for all the work you do towards creating a positive, meaningful and rewarding work environment. Please share this great news with your staff today.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
