06/10/2011


Toronto, Canada (07 October 2011) "- AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has been named one of Canada's Top 100 Employers by MediaCorp Canada, the nation's largest publisher of employment periodicals and guides.

Now entering its 12th year, the national competition aims to determine which employers lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces for their employees. This is the third year in succession that AMEC has been awarded this prestigious designation.

"We are delighted to again be recognized as a Top Employer in Canada," said Will Serle, AMEC Group Human Resources Director. "AMEC is a people business and we recognize that an investment in our people is an investment in our future. That is why we have established the AMEC Academy, to support the development of both employees and AMEC."

MediaCorp editors grade each winner on eight key areas: physical 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.

Competing against a record number of employer applications, AMEC was required to complete an extensive application process that included a detailed review of operations, communications, HR practices, charitable efforts and community involvement. Employers were compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offered the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. 

In addition to being a fast growing Canadian company that combines excellent career advancement for its employees with leading-edge employee benefits, AMEC was specifically praised for its extensive AMEC Academy, an impressive in-house training and development program designed to help employees plan their career paths and develop the necessary skills to achieve their long term goals.
