What makes a company a great place to work? The growth opportunities, benefits, flexible work or corporate social responsibility? These are all ingredients in the recipe to building a winning employee experience, but at the end of the day, the secret is a commitment to creating a workplace where everyone feels they belong and can succeed – no matter if you have team of 20 or more than 25,000 across the country.

Putting our people – and the communities in which we live and work – first have always been part of our core values at Rogers, and it turns out this might just be a winning combination.

Today, we’re proud to be recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for the 8th consecutive year, thanks to our team from coast-to-coast-to-coast! In a recent Globe and Mail story about what makes Rogers a great place to work, our CHRO, Jim Reid, and Kailtyn LeFeaver, Manager of Corporate Social Responsibility, shared how our commitment to creating the best possible employee experience and our strong tradition of community support, have been especially rewarding this year during the COVID-19 pandemic.

LeFeaver describes her immense pride in seeing how our team has come together during this unprecedented time to support our partnerships with women’s shelters, Food Banks Canada, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada, Pflag, and more. Reid highlights how our culture has allowed us to do incredible things for our teams, customers and communities in the last six months – and we’ve never been more committed to “building one of the best places to work in the country.”

All employees want to be a part of something meaningful that feels bigger than themselves. Thousands of Canadian companies apply for this award every year and it’s those who push the boundaries to create an exceptional work experience for their teams that earn this honour. We are so proud to be included on this incredible list of organizations, and you can read the full article here.
