Canadian Staffing Agency One of 50 Companies Named to Elite List
Ottawa, ON, April 27, 2017 – Eagle Professional Resources Inc. (Eagle), one of Canada’s leading professional staffing agencies, is proud to announce that it has been named by Great Places to Work Institute Canada on the 2017 list as one the “Best Workplaces in Canada – Medium”. This is the third consecutive year that the company has been named to the list. The award was announced last night at the 2017 Best Workplaces in Canada Awards Ceremony in Toronto.
Only 50 organizations across Canada with 50-999 employees were selected for the prestigious ranking, which is decided based on an extensive application process that includes HR and Executive interviews, as well as two assessment tools: The Culture Audit Management Questionnaire and the Trust Index Employee Survey. The questionnaire is an opportunity for an organization to provide insight into their value system, programs and practices, while the Employee Survey confirms if all employees believe their workplace is, in fact, one of the best in Canada.
Eagle is known throughout the staffing industry as the employer of choice for staffing professionals. The company offers a culture with unique perks that allow the team to enjoy a work/life balance, grow their career, and experience plenty of success along the way. The focus on making Eagle a great place to work has resulted in low turnover with a significant number of employees in offices across the country who have been with Eagle for more than 10 years — a milestone considerably above the industry average.
“As Eagle celebrates our 20th anniversary, we have reflected on the vision we had when we first opened our doors, with one of the higher priorities being a place where people want to work,” said Eagle’s CEO, Janis Grantham. “It’s gratifying to see that the vision is a reality. Our Leadership Team is committed to making sure that Eagle offers a great work environment, listening to the employees and making positive enhancements to further strengthen the work environment. Not only has this focus made Eagle a great place to work but it has also contributed to the success of the company.”
In addition to being named one of Canada’s Best Workplaces, Eagle was also certified as a Great Workplace this past November. The certification is awarded only to those companies whose Trust Index score, determined by responses from employees, reaches a minimum threshold of 70%.
