Congratulations to Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2016 / Félicitations aux 100 meilleurs employeurs au Canada pour 2016

(Le texte français suit.)

Congratulations to the companies and organizations recognized as Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2016 for offering exceptional workplaces for their employees.

According to The Globe and Mail news release (November 2015):

It's a significant achievement to make the list for Canada's Top 100 Employers but dozens of Canadian organizations manage to be the best in their field year after year. So how do they do it?

The simple answer is that they've made their companies exceptional places to work, but that's not enough to explain their staying power. Companies rise to the top by continuing to evolve so they get even better. Every year. That requires a dedicated commitment to making their workplace the best it can possibly be through a wide variety of progressive and innovative programs.

We all know anecdotally that being a mentor has its rewards. Mentors often report satisfaction from helping their mentees connect the dots between their abilities and their potential. Mentors relish the opportunity to pay it forward and report feeling fulfilled by the experience. But are their more tangible benefits, beyond the emotional gains?
