Canadian Staffing Company Named One of Canada’s Best Workplaces for Women
Ottawa, ON, March 8, 2017 – Eagle Professional Resources (Eagle), one of Canada’s largest professional staffing companies, is proud to announce that it has been listed on the 2017 Best Workplaces for Women list. The list was officially published on Monday by Great Place to Work Institute Canada in celebration of International Women’s Day.
This is the second time Eagle has been included on this exclusive list of 50 Canadian companies. Eagle was first recognized on this list in 2015. To qualify, hundreds of organizations across the country submit applications that also include a survey component to be completed by their employees. Top companies with a minimum of 50 female employees, a high positive response to gender equality questions and a high workplace trust experience score are selected.
Eagle has the influence of strong women throughout the team. At the top, the company is led by CEO Janis Grantham, who was appointed to the position in Spring 2016. With an approximate 60% female Management Team, the leadership has strong female representation. In addition, the overall proportion of women throughout the company is generally balanced with women occupying approximately half of the job roles. The company is also proud to offer a number of work/life balance programs, including WorkSHIFT, which provides employees with the flexibility to work at the time and location where they are most productive.
"We’re proud that Eagle is a place where women can excel professionally and honoured to be recognized by Great Place to Work Canada," said Eagle’s CEO, Janis Grantham. "We place a high value on inclusion and diversity so earning a place on the 2017 Best Workplaces for Women list is a major accomplishment. And what better time to celebrate it than alongside International Women’s Day! A day that celebrates the achievements of women around the world and works to accelerate gender parity."
