Today, Softchoice Corporation (“Softchoice” or the “Company”) was named a Best Workplace™ in Canada by the Great Place to Work® Institute, becoming one of only two organizations to receive this honour 18 years in a row. Softchoice was also recognized on the Best Workplace™ for Women and the Best Workplaces™ with Most Trusted Executive Teams lists.
Softchoice earned a place on the Best Workplaces™ with Most Trusted Executive Teams list by being Great Place to Work- Certified™ in the past year and based on employee responses to Trust Index statements related to leadership effectiveness and confidence in Softchoice's executive team.
"Being named the Best Workplace™ in Canada for 18 consecutive years is a recognition of our highly-engaged and high-performing culture,” said Karen Scott, Senior Vice President, People & Culture at Softchoice. "We are proud of the values-based organization we have built, where our people feel welcomed and are supported to succeed.”
The 2023 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute. The competition process to be on this list is employee-driven, with representation from multiple industries and sizes of organizations.
Confidential employee feedback from the globally recognized Trust Index® Survey forms seventy-five percent of each organization's score in the competition process. The remaining twenty-five percent is on the quality, quantity and effectiveness of the programs and policies which support their employees and corporate culture. This study offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. It provides crucial data relative to five trust-building dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. This year's list captures the experience and sentiment of 150,000 employees, rolling out to impact over 500,000 Canadian workers.
