This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. More than 400 Canadian companies were nominated and over 80,000 employees participated in the 2020 "Best Workplaces™ in Canada" survey, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees.
