Binnie is pleased to announce that we have been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers (2021) in Canada for the seventh consecutive year. The full list, and related stories, is published in The Globe and Mail and on Eluta.ca for anyone interested in learning more.
On receiving this award, our Chief Operating Officer, Tom Rabey says, “We take a lot of pride in providing a safe, engaging and fulfilling employment experience for all members of our growing team. This requires us to continually strive for improvements and adapt to the times, through COVID and beyond.”
Here are some of the reasons Binnie was selected as one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers (2021):
- Binnie helps employees save for the longer term with generous non-matching RSP contributions — and offers phased-in retirement work options for employees nearing retirement
- Binnie keeps employees informed and connected through the company “Bintranet,” with peer-to-peer “shout out” recognitions, company vacancies, a newsreel of daily announcements, and information on benefits and company policies
Now in its 8th year, Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers is an editorial competition that recognizes the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that offer the nation’s best workplaces and forward-thinking human resources policies. Employers are evaluated by the editors at Canada’s Top 100 Employers using the same criteria as the Top 100 competition: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their industry to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. The annual competition is open to any employer with its head office or principal place of business in Canada. Employers must have less than 500 employees worldwide, including employees at affiliated companies, and be a commercial, for-profit business.
