Golder Named One of Canada’s Ten Best Employers

Feb 6, 2013

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA -- Golder Associates Ltd. has once again been named one of Canada's Ten Best Companies To Work For in 2013 by the Financial Post and Mediacorp Canada. The award recognizes Canadian employers who lead their industries in offering exceptional career advancement opportunities and progressive employee benefits.

This is the third time Golder, a consulting, design and construction services firm, has been selected for the list. The firm's vibrant work culture, unique "Golder U" training and development program, generous benefits packages, and international employee exchange opportunities are just some of the reasons why Golder was chosen as one of Canada's best employers.

"We work hard to create an organization where our people can contribute and grow, in a culture that lives its values," said Scott Orth, National Leader of Human Development. "And as a 100%-employee owned company, all of our people have the opportunity to share in our company's success. Owners care, and this helps shape our culture. We view this as an essential part of attracting and retaining exceptional people."

"It is truly an honour to be recognized as one of Canada's best places to work" added Mark Brightman, President of Golder Associates Ltd. "It's a testament to the passion of our people for the work they do, and their enthusiasm for the future of our company."

Mediacorp selects its top ten list from among Canada's fastest growing companies. Employers are compared with other companies in their industry, to determine who offers the best professional growth opportunities, along with leading-edge benefits and perks. A wide range of criteria are considered, including: physical workplace; work atmosphere; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development opportunities; and community involvement.

The "Ten Best Companies to Work For" list is chosen by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. Golder has also been named one of Alberta's Top 60 Employers for 2013.
