McCarthy Tétrault Named One of Canada’s Best Places to Work

Toronto, October 10, 2012 — McCarthy Tétrault is honoured to announce that it has been selected as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers 2013. One of the country’s best-known annual competitions, the Top 100 Employers identifies the companies, firms and organizations that lead their industries in attracting and retaining employees.

Being selected is a tribute to McCarthy Tétrault’s innovative approach, and deep commitment to service and excellence, in all aspects of the firm's business.

"With the support of our CEO, we continue to work hard to develop and implement programs, practices, policies and initiatives that are among the very best offered by employers in Canada," said Paul Boniferro, National Leader, Practices and People. "We still have work to do, but as a leading law firm, we believe this hard work is never done."

"Our market and our industry are rapidly changing, and we are responding to the change," said Tracie Crook, COO. "We are innovating and strengthening our firm from within, to better serve our clients and our people. We are deeply committed to continuous improvement."

The Top 100 Employers competition, first published in 2000, examined the recruitment histories of more than 75,000 employers across Canada this year and then invited 12,500 of these to apply. To identify the most progressive and forward-thinking organizations, an academic Advisory Board drawn from universities across Canada used eight selection criteria:

  • Physical Workplace
  • Work Atmosphere and Social
  • Health, Financial and Family Benefits
  • Vacation and Time Off
  • Employee Communications
  • Performance Management
  • Training and Skills Development
  • Community Involvement
