The University of Toronto recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2015

November 4, 2014

U of T Top Employer Award

Today, the University of Toronto has been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Employers for 2015.

This is the eighth year the University has received this honour. The 2015 Top 100 winners were announced November 4, 2014 in a Globe & Mail feature, on, and in a special Top 100 magazine profiling this year’s winners.

U of T was evaluated in the Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition based on our programs that support our faculty and staff’s health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; physical workplace; work and social atmosphere; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.

“We have a multi-generational workforce. It spans a broad range from ‘millenials’, who are relatively new in their careers, to those who have been with the university for more than 40 years,” says Erin Jackson, Executive Director of Integrated Human Resources Service Delivery at U of T. “The university is viewed as an excellent place to work, and a lot of individuals who have the opportunity to work here, tend to want to stay and make U of T home for their career.”

U of T’s unique work environment, generous health and family benefits, and a commitment to training and skills development are only a few of the many reasons employees believe that U of T is an exceptional place to work:

  • “What better place to work than at U of T, where diversity among staff is adequately represented by the student body? An excellent representation of the richness of multiculturalism that Toronto, a world-class city, has to offer.”
  • “The University gave me both the desire and the opportunity to better myself – what more could you ask?”
  • “The University of Toronto is by its very nature a forward-looking enterprise. We are fortunate indeed to reside within a community of possibility. At U of T we enjoy a direct pipeline to a wealth of ingenuity, hope, energy, willingness, and much more. I value this positive influence, overwhelming as it can also be. I feel fortunate to work with good people.
  • “The campus is beautiful, an oasis in the downtown core, and I enjoy the architecture and the grounds every day.”
