Last time I counted it was just three sleeps to Christmas Day and about seven more to the New Year.

Is getting a new job one of your New Year’s resolutions?

If so, perhaps a list of the country’s best employers for 2010 may come in handy.

Maclean’s Magazine, The Globe and Mail and Eluta.ca recently released the results of  their Canada’s Top 100 Employers contest. The companies were evaluated by editors based on eight criteria: 1) Physcal Workplace; 2) Work Atmosphere and Social; 3) Healt, Financial and Family Benefits; 4) Vacation and Time Off; 5) Employee Communications; 6) Perfomance Management; 7) Training and Sills Development; and 8 ) Community Involvement.nestorblogphoto-150x150

  • If you want to find the best employer talk to the employees and not just allow the employers to submit why they are best.

    Canada Post would end up on the bottom of the pile as one of the worse employers.
