Fairmont Hotels & Resorts #1 on top-rated workplace list

TORONTO — Job search site Indeed has released a ranking of the 25 Top-Rated Workplaces in Canada – and a well-known Canadian hospitality company tops the list.

Based hundreds of thousands of company reviews on Indeed Company Pages, luxury hospitality leader Fairmont Hotels & Resorts came out on top, with a #1 ranking on this year’s list.

“With such a tight labour market and a low unemployment rate, there is a lot of competition in recruiting today. In order to stand out to job seekers, companies are continuing to evolve their overall employee experience in the hopes of attracting and retaining top talent for their open positions,” says Jodi Kasten, Managing Director, Indeed Canada.

“The 25 organizations on our list are considered among the best places to work and have worked hard to listen to the specific needs of their employees to provide an outstanding experience through strategic and thoughtful workplace programs.”

Nearly half of the companies on the list were also honored in 2017, with Ledcor making the biggest leap from #16 in 2017 to #2 in 2018. RBC was honoured with the #1 spot last year and retains top-10 status (#6) on this year’s list.
