The 2023 winners of Canada’s Top 100 Employers have been unveiled.

As Canadians adapt to a new normal of work, finding the right fit becomes a question of choice, it said. This year’s winners are leading by listening, tapping into employee feelings and sentiments about the many challenges of the past year.

“Employers are trying to find their footing in unfamiliar territory,” said Richard Yerema, executive editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp. “There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach for hybrid and remote work. Agility and willingness to learn from feedback and try something new is what differentiates this year’s winners.”

Along with managing the return to the workplace, organizations have doubled down on their efforts to support health and wellness, from enhanced programming and resources to increased coverage for mental health services and providing access to mindfulness and meditation apps.


“There really isn’t an alternative to listening to employees and trying to understand how their needs have changed,” said Anthony Meehan, publisher at Mediacorp “We see a lot being written on trends like ‘quiet quitting’ and employees not wanting to return to their pre-pandemic working arrangements, but the reality is that burn-out and mental health have become significant challenges. Finding ways to ensure that employees can disconnect, rest and recharge has become mission-critical to an organization’s success and sustainability.”
