We were honoured yesterday to be named by Mediacorp Canada Inc., as one of the Top Employers in Greater Toronto for a fourth consecutive year. This designation recognizes the Greater Toronto employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. Halton Region received especially high marks in the training and skills development category.
Halton Region was recognized for:
- investment in ongoing skills development through tuition subsidies for courses taken at outside institutions;
- subsidies for professional accreditation and the variety of in-house and online training programs offered for staff;
- participation in Sheridan College’s work placement program to provide internationally trained professionals with opportunities to gain Canadian work experience; and
- programs to encourage employees to prepare for life after work with retirement planning assistance and contributions to a defined benefit pension plan.
