The designation, awarded to 95 organizations for 2012, recognizes employers that lead their industries by offering exceptional workplaces.Each employer was judged on its operations and human-resources practices according to the same eight criteria as the national competition for Canada's Top 100 Employers:

• physical workplace, which includes benefits such as on-site gyms and lounges;
• work atmosphere and social (described as the overall culture, including organized events);
• health, financial and family benefits;
• vacation, and time off;
• employee communications (which refers to the company’s procedures to communicate and get feedback from employees);
• performance management (including performance reviews, recognition and rewards);
• skills and training development; and,
• community involvement.

The complete list of employers appears in the November 16 edition of The Globe and Mail.

U of T was honoured nationally last month when it was recognized as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for 2012.
