Hamilton-Niagara’s Top Employers for 2023 have been announced, and the list is dominated by the education and health care sectors.
Mediacorp Canada, which organizes the Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition, focuses on forward-thinking employers in the Hamilton-Niagara area that look to the future by training their employees and investing in upskilling.
Eight criteria are used when compiling the list: workplace; work atmosphere and social; health, financial, and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.
“The Hamilton-Niagara area is flanked by renowned post-secondary institutions,” says Kristina Leung, managing editor at Mediacorp. “These provide a steady stream of trained staff to local employers, who build on their academic training by investing in upskilling and career development.”
