Job searching is as much practical as it is aspirational. In other words, a job is essential, but taking just any old job at any old company just won't cut it.
TL;DR: Glassdoor has just released its list of the top 25 best places to work in Canada for organizations with 1,000 employees or more. Companies are ranked by how well they performed in anonymous employee reviews. Scroll down for the full list.
Most job-seekers and career-oriented folks have the bar set high when it comes to the organizations they agree to work for.
Just like finding that special person to settle down and commit to, you can't settle when it comes to your career.
There is no bigger commitment than a 40 plus hour work week, so you better be working for a great company that fosters your professional growth and potential as much as you're contributing to the company's growth.
No one stays for very long in a one-sided relationship.
That said, modern and progressive organizations know that the young work force is no longer interested in staying at one company for 20, 30, or 40 years. We're a generation of job hoppers. Staying two to three years in a company has become standard practice.
This motivates busineses to work hard developing company culture, benefits programs, and other daily perks as a means to incentivize their talent to stay and grow within the company.
Bottom line: these perks work. The quality of environment one works in matters just as much, if not more, than the actual day-to-day job and responsibilities.
Just visit Glassdoor for proof. Glassdoor is a place where employees can go and anonmously rate their experience at any organization.
