SickKids one of the best places to work in Toronto

The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) has been named as one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers 2015 by Mediacorp Canada Inc.

The list of winners was included in a magazine published by The Globe and Mail and Mediacorp Dec. 8.

The magazine listing notes SickKids offers employees subsidized membership to on-site fitness facilities, including instructor-led classes in yoga and dance.  The nomination also highlighted other aspects of SickKids’ wellness program including our Employee Assistance Program, weekly seated massage therapy, a walking club, wii sign out, running club, meditation/reflection rooms, monthly Lunch and Learn Seminars and onsite facilities, including  new showers and bike lockers in the Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning.

“We are delighted to be named as a top employer in Toronto,” said Susan O’Dowd, Vice-President, Human Resources. “Our employees are dedicated and work hard for excellence in child health, in whatever capacity they serve. As an employer, SickKids aims to create and maintain a friendly and productive workplace where excellence, innovation and quality can flourish.”

The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is home to many national and international head offices. Those who are recognized among the top 100 employers are “forward thinking in creating the best types of work environments,” the magazine said.

Further, being recognized as a top employer “gives organizations an edge in attracting and retaining the most talented individuals in their work force. But the real winners in the GTA may be the people living here, surrounded by an incredible range of career possibilities just a short walk, drive or subway ride away.”
