Canada’s Top 100 Employers: 7th year in a row for McCarthy Tétrault

Toronto, November 9, 2018 — For the seventh consecutive year, McCarthy Tétrault is one of the Top 100 Employers in Canada. This year’s competition, the 19th edition, saw a record number of employers take part in the selection process, with an increased number of applicants from all regions of the country. Mediacorp editors examined the recruitment histories of over 95,000 employers. From this pool, 9,801 were invited to submit detailed applications.

When asked how McCarthy Tétrault will keep on earning this distinction going forward, partner and CEO Dave Leonard’s answer is unequivocal: “We will keep listening to our people’s innovative ideas and suggestions to improve not only our programs, but how we work and constantly seek to enhance our culture. Being named a Best Employer in Canada is a source of pride, and it’s also a challenge because it means we have to continue to live up to that standard and constantly walk the talk, something we are committed to doing every day.”

Tracie Crook, the firm’s Chief Operating Officer, added “This year’s recognition is more significant than ever because it means that McCarthy Tétrault’s programs, practices, policies and initiatives designed to support the firm’s people and their families stand among the very best offered by a record 9,801 employers in the Canadian marketplace.”

The Canada's Top 100 Employers competition recognizes employers with exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies. Editors at Mediacorp, the nation's largest publisher of employment periodicals, grade employers on eight criteria, which have remained constant since the project's inception in 1999: (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.
