It’s Official: Weston Forest is a Great Place to Work®
Mississauga, ON – November 25, 2021 – Steve Rhone, President and CEO, is proud to announce that Weston Forest has been certified as a Great Place to Work® after a thorough, independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work Institute® Canada. This certification is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about their workplace experience.
According to Steve Rhone, “The secret to our strength and our competitive advantage has always been in our people-first culture, and our Great Place to Work® certification confirms that our people believe in us as much as we believe in them. It is this dynamic that has fueled our growth over the last several years.” Rhone goes on to quote a Weston Forest core value: “Results matter, but people matter more.”
Nancy Fonseca, Senior Vice President of Great Place to Work® Canada, says that a great workplace is about the level of trust that employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs, and the extent to which they enjoy their colleagues. “Our data shows that great workplaces benefit from stronger financial performance, reduced turnover, and better customer satisfaction than their peers. What’s more, work environments with trust at the foundation are ripe for innovation, agility, resilience and efficiency,” Fonseca said.
