Toronto, Ontario — November 12, 2018 — An emphasis on professional development, environment, and health and safety has landed BASF Canada on the list of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for the fifth consecutive year.
Mediacorp Canada’s annual ranking is determined through a survey comparing employers to other organizations in their field based on eight different categories which include, physical workplace, work atmosphere, social, health, financial, family benefits, vacation and time off, employee communications, performance management, community involvement, training and skills development.
“We are proud to be part of a global chemical company with a workforce committed to innovation and sustainability,” said Marcelo Lu, president of BASF Canada. “Our employees are here with purpose, and part of that is to help drive more sustainable solutions through collaboration with our customers and Canadian industries.”
BASF Canada was highlighted for its efforts in several areas including its Professional Development Program for college students and recent graduates; engagement for science education; environment, health, safety and community-based initiatives; and employee development opportunities.
“Every employee is empowered to actively shape their own development – making the most of their own diverse talents and role,” said Terri Howard, director of human resources, BASF
Canada. “For us, this means motivational and challenging learning opportunities, trainings, career patterns, and the opportunity for cross-organizational moves.”
This year’s Top 100 competition saw a record number of employers take part in the selection process.
