The University of Toronto has been recognized by Forbes as one of Canada’s Best Employers 2023.
Forbes and Statista selected Canada’s Best Employers for 2023 based on independent surveys of over 12,000 employees working part-time or full-time for companies employing at least 500 people in Canada. The evaluation was based on direct and indirect recommendations from employees that were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family. The surveys were anonymous, enabling participants to share their opinions freely.
Said Statista, “The title Canada’s Best Employers 2023 serves to reinforce your reputation as a company that provides excellent employment opportunities for employees in Canada.”
Employee evaluations also included other employers in their respective industries that stood out either positively or negatively. Participants were asked to give their opinion on a series of work-related topics like working conditions, salary potential for development, and company image regarding their current employer.
Acting Vice President, PSEC, Heather Boon, said, “we are delighted to have again been recognized as one of Canada’s best employers. The award is an acknowledgement of U of T’s commitment to creating a safe and equitable working environment, and providing accessible supports for our community. This work is ongoing. There is always more to do, and I’m grateful that U of T is willing to push the boundaries of past practice, and to keep improving on the progress we have made.”
The University of Toronto was also recently named one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers for 2023.
