Markham, November 14, 2016 – For the fifth consecutive year, Allstate Insurance Company of Canada has been named one of the Best Employers in Canada, according to the 2017 Best Employer study conducted by global Human Resources consulting firm Aon Hewitt. The annual study identifies the best organizations in the country with the highest employee engagement, leadership, performance culture and employment brand. In order to achieve the top level, Platinum recognition - which was established last year - organizations need to fully meet the requirements in all four categories, which Allstate Canada has done since this distinction was introduced.
“We are extremely proud to once again be recognized with this award,” says Ryan Michel, president and CEO of Allstate Insurance Company of Canada. “Discussion around how we can be among the top places to work in Canada is ongoing with our leadership. It is important to consider multiple dimensions at play – everything from career development to work life balance. We know it’s difficult to maintain the level of excellence required to make this list, and we are thrilled to have kept our status.”
Spots on the Best Employer list are earned based on analysis of results on Aon in-depth engagement survey that both employees and company leaders complete.
According to Aon, the level of engagement in a company is best measured through its employee behaviour. This information is captured through surveys that determine if employees speak positively about the organization to others, whether they are committed to remaining with their current employer and whether they are motivated by their organizations' leaders, managers, culture and values to do the very best job possible to contribute to business success.
