Air Canada once again named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers

MONTREAL — For the seventh year in a row Air Canada has been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers.

The competition by Mediacorp Canada Inc. recognizes employers with “exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies”. Starting with an initial list of over 90,000 employers, Mediacorp graded those selected on eight criteria: Physical Workplace: Work Atmosphere & Social; Health, Financial & Family Benefits; Vacation & Time-Off; Employee Communications; Performance Management; Training & Skills Development; and Community Involvement.

Air Canada was cited for several of its support and engagement programs, including: state-of-the-art training facilities; programs to promote health, fitness and wellness; generous benefits and perks for employees and their families and a consultative approach to workplace developments, such as recent head office renovations where Air Canada sought employee feedback on everything from storage space design to the final décor.

“We are honoured to be ranked again as one of Canada’s top employers. This recognition for the seventh straight year validates our work making culture and employee engagement one of our core focuses,” said Arielle Meloul-Wechsler, Senior Vice President, People, Culture and Communications, at Air Canada.

“Our company culture which fosters an engaged workforce has become a true competitive advantage, and we are very proud of Air Canada’s more than 33,000 dedicated employees who deliver excellent service safely to the 51 million customers we carry each year.”
