Loblaw only grocer on list of GTA's best employers

11/16/2011

Loblaw is the only grocer named one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers by Mediacorp Canada.

It’s the third year in a row that the retailer has made the list.

"We strive to create an exceptional work environment where colleagues feel connected and engaged," says Judy McCrie, executive vice-president, human resources and labour relations, Loblaw. "It's an honour to be recognized as a top employer for Greater Toronto. At Loblaw, our colleagues are our greatest strength. Building a culture of excellence where people are passionate about their work is what enables us to recruit and retain the region's best talent."

Commitment to be a great place to work  is one of Loblaw's five corporate social responsibility principles, and helps shape the company's approach to colleague engagement.

Loblaw has earned its place on the list of Greater Toronto's Top Employers this year through such initiatives as allowing employees to receive paid time off to volunteer with President’s Choice Children’s Charity in the Greater Toronto Area; and mentorship and recruitment programs such as grad at Loblaw and Women at Loblaw.
