Morneau Shepell and The Globe and Mail have named 32 organizations that are finalists for the Employee Recommended Workplace Award, and nine of those will be selected as winners during next month’s awards ceremony.
The nine winners of the Employee Recommended Workplace award will be honoured at a ceremony on June 21 in Toronto. The Employee Recommended Workplace award is given to organizations chosen based on confidential employee surveys. The survey includes information on employees' physical and mental health and about their work and life.
“Research shows that healthy employees are more engaged and productive, and that translates into better business results,” Bill Howatt, Morneau Shepell’s chief research and development officer, said in a press release.
“The starting point is for employers to measure their employees’ total health - physical, mental, work and life and identify a plan of action,” Howatt said. “The Employee Recommended Workplace Award survey provides the key metrics organizations need for benchmarking and measuring their progress in achieving better health, engagement and productivity.”
“The Globe is pleased to congratulate the finalists for excellence in achieving a healthy, engaged and productive workplace,” Phillip Crawley, The Globe and Mail’s CEO, said. “We look forward to announcing the top category winners in the Globe and Mail Centre in June.”
