We are proud to announce that Binnie has been named on the 2020 list of Best Workplaces for Today’s Youth.

We received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®.

The list is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®. The data has a 90% confidence and a plus or minus 5% margin of error.  To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work- Certified™ in the past year, at least 30% of their employees must fit the Millennial or younger demographics and they must have a minimum 90% positive response to the statement “I am treated fairly regardless of my age”. We determined the BEST based on the overall Trust Index score from the youth working in the organization.

How We Support Today’s Youth

Here at Binnie, we have a Young Professionals (YP) group which provides a creative space where YP’s can express their opinions, suggestions, and concerns with one another at Binnie.

Members consist of engineers, technologists, EITs, project managers, admin staff, and more. All YP members are welcome to provide input, vote on preferred events and elect candidates for various YP Committee positions.

The Binnie YP group also targets specific social and professional development events each year, encouraging member participation in industry associations. Examples of past events include trivia nights, lunch and learn series, shoreline cleanups, and bowling nights.

During the pandemic, the YP group has adapted to include virtually hosted events such as fireside chats with the leadership team and lunch and learn presentations with our seasoned professionals.
