Ottawa, ON (December 11, 2019) Harris has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in Canada in 2020. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its 12th year, is based solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies on Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites.
“Glassdoor has become an invaluable source of feedback, providing us with a lens that allows us to truly understand the progress we are making in creating the right environment where our employees can bring their best each and every day in support of themselves, their co-workers and our customers. We want to acknowledge and thank all of our employees for making Harris one of the best places to work.” Jeff Bender, Harris CEO
“At Harris, our employees are our most important asset. We are focused on creating a culture where employees can bring their whole self to work. We continually raise the bar on how we attract, engage and develop our employees. This award will only push us to do more as an organization and a leadership team.” Judy Doggett, CPO
“This year marks the shift to a culture-first decade in the workplace, and Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Awards winners are employers that are prioritizing culture, mission and employees at the heart of everything they do. By doing so, their employees have spoken and are recognizing them truly as the Best Places to Work in 2020,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor president, chief operating officer and incoming chief executive officer. “In addition to putting culture and mission at the core of how they operate, this year’s winners stand out for promoting transparency with employees, offering career growth opportunities and providing work driven by impact and purpose. Congratulations go to all of the exceptional employers this year who stand out in the eyes of their employees.”
On Glassdoor, current and former employees voluntarily and anonymously share insights and opinions about their work environments by sharing a company review, designed to capture a genuine and authentic inside look at what a specific job may be like at a particular company. When sharing a company review on Glassdoor, employees are asked to rate their satisfaction with the company overall, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation and benefits, culture and values, senior management and work/life balance. In addition, employees are asked to describe the best reasons to work at their companies as well as any downsides.
Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work were determined using company reviews shared by Canada-based employees between October 23, 2018 and October 21, 2019. To be considered for the Canada category, a company must have had at least 1,000 employees and have received at least 25 ratings across each of the eight workplace attributes from Canada-based employees during the period of eligibility. The final list is compiled using Glassdoor’s proprietary algorithm, led by its Economic Research Team, and takes into account quantity, quality and consistency of reviews.
