Canadian Apartment Properties Real Estate Investment Trust (CAPREIT) announced that it has been selected as a Platinum Level Aon Best Employer in Canada.
Aon recently transitioned to one overall global Aon Best Employers program with two levels of recognition: Platinum and Gold. To become a Platinum or Gold Aon Best Employer, organizations need to perform strongly on employee engagement, leadership, performance culture, and employment brand.
Each year AON Hewitt surveys employees in companies across Canada to provide an in-depth view into employee and leader opinions, comprehensive external benchmarking, and the ability to identify the key priorities that will drive engagement and performance in Canadian organizations.
The Best Employers Study is the only national workplace research of its kind. As a leader in HR consulting, AON Hewitt’s flagship study reflects more than 20 years of industry measurement and consultation and is part of a global study. The list of the Aon Best Employers in Canada, along with editorial features in a package highlighting the research findings, will be published in Canadian Business magazine and will land on newsstands in the GTA today, November 5th, 2015.
“We are extremely proud to have been selected as one of Aon’s Best Employers in Canada for a third consecutive year,” stated Thomas Schwartz, President and CEO. “I am thrilled to be part of Aon’s prestigious Platinum Level. One of our most important goals is to have a team of fully engaged and satisfied employees. This year the survey results show that our people are most happy with our leadership development initiatives, known as our LEAD Program (Leadership Excellence and Development). LEAD encompasses a mentoring program, a management trainee program, and a leadership curriculum. These programs provide our employees with the skills and tools they need to grow in their careers at CAPREIT.”
“Our people are our most important asset. It is because of them that we are able to continue to strive for excellence and be the best in our industry.” Mr. Schwartz concluded.
