PwC recognized as a top employer for an eighth year

TORONTO, October 7, 2011—Today, Mediacorp Canada Inc. recognized PwC as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for 2012, the eighth consecutive year we've been selected for this prestigious award.  We were also selected as a Top Employer for Young People for 2011, the third year in a row we've received this recognition.

"We’re very proud of this recognition," says Bill McFarland, CEO and Canadian Senior Partner of PwC Canada. "To us, it's important that the significant investment we make in our most important resource - our people - is externally recognized.  PwC offers limitless opportunities to learn, develop and advance one's career and our focus is to create an environment where it is possible for all of our people to realize their full potential."

The 12th edition of Mediacorp Canada Inc.’s annual competition for “Canada’s Top 100 Employers” invited 12,500 employers to apply from a range of industries across the country.  Some of our key employee programs and initiatives that were highlighted by the judges included:

  • A “teach don’t tell” philosophy: We take time for coaching and help our people look for opportunities to develop on-the-job  and accelerate their development.
  • Community involvement: We believe in integrating good social, environmental and economic values into our business operations. Our people volunteered more than 17,000 hours in the community during paid working hours over the past year.
