For the third year in a row, Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP has been named one of the 50 Best Employers in Canada by Aon Hewitt, a global leader in human resources consulting and outsourcing solutions. The annual survey recognizes organizations from across Canada with the highest levels of employee engagement and is the only national ranking of employers that is primarily based on employee feedback. 

Approximately 800 Gowlings employees from the firm’s Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Waterloo, Hamilton, Ottawa and Montréal offices took part in the survey, placing Gowlings at 35th overall.

“Our greatest asset has always been our people, and it is for this reason we recruit the best and the brightest,” said R. Scott Jolliffe, chair and CEO of Gowlings. “Recognition as one of Canada’s Best Employers is more than another notch on our belt — it’s a sign we’re doing something right for our team.”

Over 150 organizations took part in this year’s survey, and responses from thousands of employees were analyzed to measure their level of engagement. According to Aon Hewitt’s definition, employees are engaged when they speak positively about the organization, are committed to remaining with their current employer, and are motivated by their organization’s leaders, managers, culture and values to go above and beyond.

“Gowlings is a great place to work because of the people,” said Rhowan Sivel, a business development and marketing manager in the firm’s Ottawa office. “They strive for excellence in everything they do, and you can tell they really care about their clients and are passionate about their profession. There is a great culture of collaboration and constant innovation that makes each day fun and exciting.”

The complete list of 2013’s Best Employers appears in the October 29 issue of Maclean’s magazine and the November 20 edition of La Presse.
