The Great Place to Work® Institute has named our Canada office one of the 2022 Best Workplaces™ for Today’s Youth based on the feedback our team members provided in our Annual Employee Satisfaction Survey!
The Best Workplaces for Today’s Youth award is based on an analysis of confidential responses from more than 130,000 current employees in Canada, representing a half million individuals employed at over 600 companies. The results of last year’s survey led our Canada office to become “Certified” by the Great Place to Work® Institute and eligible to be a winner of this prestigious award. The survey showed that 94% of our team members feel that Venterra is a great place to work, as compared to just 60% at the average Canadian workplace, helping us earn a spot on the prestigious Best Workplaces in Canada list earlier this year. Given that hundreds of organizations were surveyed and that this was the first time our Canada office had utilized the Great Place to Work® Institute platform, the Best Workplaces™ for Today’s Youth recognition represents another significant achievement for the company.
In addition to needing to meet the institute’s “Certified” standard, eligibility for the award required at least 30% of the team to fall into the Millennial or younger demographic, and a minimum of a 90% positive response to the statement “I am treated fairly regardless of my age.” In the case of Venterra’s Canadian team members, a full 96% of participating team members agreed with the statement.
“We’re thrilled that our first Canadian survey using Great Place to Work has resulted in multiple recognitions from such a respected institution,” said Venterra CEO, John Foresi. “With Millennials accounting for the largest percentage of the Canadian workforce, it’s exciting to be named on the 2022 Best Workplaces for Today’s Youth list. This award, in combination with our Best Workplaces™ in Canada recognition, it’s an indicator that our colleagues and leaders have created the type of workplace and culture that appeals to a wide diversity of Canadian talent.”
“It’s an honor to continue seeing Venterra’s unique company culture recognized based on feedback from our team members,” added Venterra Chairman, Andrew Stewart. “These are the same individuals who should be credited for this award and for our past workplace awards. Their ongoing passion for creating amazing experiences for their fellow colleagues is truly remarkable.”
