For the eighth consecutive year, Mediacorp Canada Inc. has recognized Halton Region as one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers. The distinction is awarded to organizations offering exceptional work environments and meaningful careers that promote employee engagement and success. Halton’s selection indicates it ranked among the highest scorers of participating local employers.

“We are proud to be one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers for 2019,” said Gary Carr, Halton Regional Chair. “By investing in our team, we can attract and leverage the top talent that will continue to enhance Regional programs and services. Our dedicated Council and the caliber of our staff are the reason why 97 per cent of Halton residents are satisfied with the quality of Regional programs.”

Halton employs over 2,500 professionals whose collective skills, expertise and perspectives make a positive difference in the community. When considering Halton for the award, Mediacorp examined its wellness programs, opportunities for young people, supports for new parents, professional development and training, working conditions and onsite amenities at its public headquarters.

The local competition reviews submissions from both the public and private sector—including national and multinational organizations—and is based on the same comprehensive criteria as the national contest.
