 December 16, 2021

Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail and Canada's Top 100 Employers has selected Schneider Electric Canada as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers (2022) and Greater Toronto's Top Employers (2022), which recognize the most progressive companies when it comes to human resources policies.

Offering exceptional workplaces for employees

The Canada’s Top 100 Employers project is a national competition to determine which employers lead their industries by offering exceptional workplaces for their employees. 

Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers using eight criteria, which have remained consistent since the project’s inception. These are Physical Workplace; Work Atmosphere & Social; Health, Financial & Family Benefits; Vacation & Time Off; Employee Communications; Performance Management; Training & Skills Development; and Community Involvement.

Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.

Supporting employee wellbeing and development 

Schneider Electric top employers

Here are some of the reasons why Schneider Electric Canada was selected as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers and Greater Toronto's Top Employers:

  • Schneider Electric Canada introduced a number of programs to support the physical and mental health of employees, from weekly virtual learning sessions and live talks, weekly well-being tips and a well-being diagnosis tool, to additional support through the employee assistance program. It also introduced a furniture program that made 800 deliveries to employees working from home, shipping out sit-stand desks, ergonomic chairs and computer monitor arms for home offices
  • Schneider Electric Canada encourages employees to prioritize their health and wellness, offering resources on a number of subjects including recognizing stress and burnout, nutrition, the power of sleep, how appreciation creates value, and well-being in a digital age. The company also engages 200 Well-being Champions, global employee volunteers who help carry out initiatives locally
  • Along with apprenticeships, mentoring and numerous in-house and online training programs, Schneider Electric Canada supports ongoing employee development with generous tuition subsidies for courses related and not directly related to their current position, with no set lifetime maximum

Schneider Electric is a top employer for young people

Schneider Electric Canada is also celebrated as a Top EMployer for Yong People.

The company manages a rotational commercial leadership program to provide exposure to the company's main areas of business over a two to three year period -- candidates work in quotations, manufacturing and engineering, and sales and marketing, and are exposed to senior leadership, including the country president and CEO. 

Schneider Electric Canada's Pulse program invites early-career staff to participate in experiential learning opportunities such as job shadowing or team challenges -- in one challenge, participants are split into teams and led by a designated sponsor to assess issues in the organization and provide creative solutions.

Schneider Electric is a green employer

Schneider Electric Canada's employee-led head office green team helps to organize a number of eco-focused initiatives throughout the year, from a book share and reuse program to clean-up days where a group of employees head out and clean-up nearby parks. Their manufacturing plants in Victoria, Edmonton and Brossard (Québec) are certified zero waste to landfill.
