One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to creating a great workplace: Ernst & Young
(Toronto, 20 November 2012) Creating flexible, progressive and forward-thinking programs helps attract the best people and foster a positive, productive workplace, says Ernst & Young. Today, the firm’s leading people culture was recognized as it was named one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers for 2013.
“We are humbled to receive this award again this year,” says Stephen Shea, Ernst & Young’s People Leader in Canada. “We work hard to help our people reach their professional and personal goals — they really are our greatest asset — and we’re grateful to be recognized for that commitment.”
Just last week, Ernst & Young was named one of the 25 World’s Best Multinational Workplaces in 2012 by Great Place to Work®. Around the globe, the firm is known for its diverse workforce and flexible work environment.
“The GTA in particular is such a vibrant and diverse community,” explains Eric Rawlinson, Ernst & Young’s Managing Partner in the Greater Toronto Area. “At Ernst & Young, we believe that avoiding the one-size-fits-all approach is critical. With that philosophy, we attract and retain the very best people and deliver exceptional results for our clients.”
Shea and Rawlinson agree honours like this tell them they’re on the right path, but they’re not planning on stopping anytime soon.
“Our people’s knowledge and passion is truly what makes Ernst & Young a great place to work,” says Shea. “We’re constantly transforming our programs to ensure they’re aligned with the evolving needs and goals of our people.”
