If you work for a company with headquarters in Mississauga, you might be happy to learn that there’s a chance your place of employment has been recognized by prestigious business publication Forbes as one of the best employers in the country.

The list is actually enormous and features 300 companies from across Canada, including Queen’s University, Microsoft, Google, Ubisoft, Costo, Parks Canada and more.

In terms of businesses with headquarters in Mississauga, the 19 lucky companies that made the list include:

  • Kruger Products
  • Microsoft
  • Oracle
  • GlaxoSmithKline
  • General Electric
  • Ericsson
  • Remax/Integra
  • FedEx
  • Hilton
  • Marriott Hotels
  • EllisDon
  • Canada Cartage
  • PepsiCo
  • City of Mississauga
  • Honeywell International
  • Schneider Electric
  • Hatch

  • Purolator

As far as the country’s top five companies go, Google scored the top spot and was followed by the Mississauga-based Kruger Products. The third spot on the list went to Hydro Quebec and the fourth and fifth place rankings went to SAP and the Vitalité Health Network.

As for how the ranking system works, Forbes collaborated with online statistics provider Statista to ask 8,000 Canadian employees working for large organizations to rate their willingness to recommend their company to others on a scale of 1 – 10. The employees surveyed were not contacted through their employers, but anonymously through “several online access panels.”

The top 300 employers, which represent 25 different industries, were highlighted based on those results.

Was your company on the list? Are you happy with the rankings?
