Now in its 15th year, Montréal's Top Employers is a special designation that recognizes employers in Greater Montréal that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. Employers were evaluated by the editors at Canada's Top 100 Employers using the same criteria as the national competition: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. The annual competition is open to any employer with its head office in Greater Montréal; employers of any size may apply, whether private- or public-sector.
The full list of Montréal's Top Employers for 2020 was announced yesterday in a special magazine published in the Montreal Gazette and is available here.

The recognition of Pfizer Canada as one of Montreal’s Top Employers demonstrates that we take this seriously by offering meaningful work to colleagues and making Pfizer an amazing workplace for all’’ said Laura Larbalestier, Vice President, Human Resources.
