The City of Mississauga was again named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People for 2012 as selected by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers.
“We are pleased to be recognized as one of the leading national employers for young people for the third year in a row,” said Janice Baker, City Manager and CAO. “The City’s Youth Plan highlights the City’s commitment to providing the opportunities youth need today to develop the skills to be successful employees and members of the Mississauga community.”
According to Mediacorp Canada Inc., the publishing firm that manages Canada’s Top 100 Employers, this special designation recognizes the employers that offer the nation’s best benefits for younger workers. The winners are deemed to be Canada’s leaders in attracting and retaining younger employees to their organizations.
Selection of the Top Employers for Young People was based on a number of criteria including workforce demographics, opportunities for education and development as well as entry level openings.
“Job placements are further enhanced by providing our young employees opportunities to participate in various programs, and the chance to interact with staff at all levels of the City to gain insight and experience in our organization,” said Sharon Willock, director of Human Resources.
