For the second year in a row, Util-Assist has been recognized as an Employee Recommended Workplace in a national program developed by The Globe and Mail and Morneau Shepell. The program recognizes employers across Canada that have made the well-being of their employees a top priority. Recipients of this award have demonstrated a commitment to wellness by fostering employee health and safety, mental health, and work-life balance.

 The scoring methodology is based on four categories: work, mental, physical, and life. Util-Assist’s total score was compiled from employees’ aggregate results. The program is unique in that the award is determined solely by employees: employees determine which organizations rise to the top and are recognized as Employee Recommended Workplaces. Ratings are gathered anonymously to ensure that employees are given the opportunity to provide honest feedback about the employer’s dedication to health and wellness.

 “We are thrilled to be recognized for our efforts in creating a positive workplace culture for the second consecutive year,” says Laura Ng, Director of Marketing and Communications at Util-Assist. “As a rapidly growing organization, our employees are our most valued asset and set the tone for our success.”

 Util-Assist is now entitled to use the 2019 Employee Recommended Workplace badge of distinction on Util-Assist’s website, on marketing collateral and in recruiting efforts. This badge tells current and future employees, as well as clients, that Util-Assist is an employer of choice, as declared by Util-Assist employees.
