Adecco Canada Makes the 2014 Great Place to Work® List

TORONTO, April 17, 2014 /CNW/ - Today, Adecco Canada is proud to announce that the organization has been named one of the country's top places to work with a spot on Canada's coveted Great Place to Work® list for 2014. Based on employee trust and overall corporate culture, the annual list profiles Canada's 100 best organizations to work for. Adecco, which includes its Canadian specialty brands, Roevin, Holloway Schulz & Partners, Adecco Finance, and Adecco Professional, was recognized on the Top 50 list for large and International organizations.

"Being named one of Canada's 50 best employers is a huge accomplishment and one that the entire Adecco organization is very proud of, especially since we only began the Great Place to Work® journey three short years ago," said Sandra Hokansson, President and Country Manager of Adecco Canada. "The journey has been quite personal for me and for my leadership team and the leadership journey continues with help from our colleagues. A highly engaged and motivated workforce yields countless returns, so listening to employee feedback on how we could improve overall work experience was invaluable. We responded by implementing concrete action plans and annual employee focus groups with employees from across the country. This exercise allowed us to develop a comprehensive picture of where we are, where we need to go, and how we should get there." This focused approach has resulted in stronger financial performance, improved retention rates, and a more engaged workforce.

Equally excited about this accomplishment is Shari Angle, Vice President of Talent and Communications at Adecco Canada. "We are a highly passionate organization that has the opportunity to change lives through the work we perform every day," Angle noted. "Fostering a culture that supports our mission of 'better work, better life' is achieved by prioritizing people practices within our business strategies. Our focus is on regularly developing talent, rewarding achievement, communicating both the company's successes and challenges, and inviting feedback from employees at all levels of the organization. Being recognized by the Great Place to Work® Institute is an honour and it validates what our employees already know: Adecco is a great place to work!"

Adecco's workplace improvement best practices include:

  • Listening to employees and implementing actions plans that respond directly to their feedback
  • Communicating frequently and honestly about both positive and more challenging issues facing the organization, conveying transparency and receptivity, as well as driving employee ownership
  • Staying true to commitments and following through on promises.

Adecco Canada's 45th place ranking on the 2014 Great Place to Work® list was announced at a gala dinner last night at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto.
