Binnie is pleased to announce that we have been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers (2022) in Canada for the eighth 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 Director of Human Resources, Stacey Kons says, “Binnie is very pleased to again be recognized as one of Canada’s Top Employer for Small & Medium Businesses. Through thoughtful efforts, we continue to nurture a work environment which supports our team and which aligns every day with our core values of being welcoming, caring, collaborative, and fun. We would not be the company we are without our team, and we are grateful that they help make Binnie a great company to work at.”
Here are some of the reasons Binnie was selected as one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers (2022):
- Binnie supports employees who are new mothers with maternity leave top-up payments (to 90 per cent of salary for 17 weeks) and also provides a small top-up for fathers and adoptive parents (90 per cent of salary for two weeks)
- Binnie encourages employees to recruit their friends with generous new employee referral bonuses, ranging from $250 to $5,000, depending on the position.
- 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 9th 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.
