HRdownloads recognized as a Great Place to Work©

HRdownloads is being recognized as one of this year's Best Workplaces in Canada. This list, and related stories, will appear in a special national report on Thursday April 17th, 2014 in The Globe and Mail.

President & CEO of HRdownloads, Anthony Boyle, states: "Everyone at HRdownloads is ecstatic about receiving such recognition! This award really stands out to me, personally, because employee feedback accounts for the majority of the judging criteria. This is the third time that HRdownloads has won the Best Workplaces award, and it really goes to show our commitment to our employees and our employees' commitment to our company".

This list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a 58-statement survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

HRdownloads stood out for noteworthy practices such as hosting "Wisdom Wednesday", where employees participate in fun and informative company updates and information sharing. Also of note were new hire onboarding practices, training and development initiatives and rewards such as annual Beach Day and organic turkeys during the holiday season.

"As a provider of HR solutions to Canadian businesses, it's especially important to HRdownloads that we, internally, are excelling in the arena of HR best practice. This award goes to show that everything we're doing, we're doing great!" Boyle said.

This year's list received over 300 nominations and over 60,000 employees participated in the 2014 "Best Workplaces in Canada" survey.

In a statement from the Institute: "Great Place to Work® Institute would like to recognize and congratulate HRdownloads for its success in creating a great workplace culture. HRdownloads was ranked on our 2014 list because employees told us they trust management, have pride in their jobs, and enjoy the people they work with."
