Ideaca Knowledge Services, a Canadian based consulting firm that helps customers through a portfolio of management consulting, implementation and support services, is being recognized as one of Canada’s Best Workplaces in 2011 by the Great Place to Work ® Institute Canada. The list was published as a Special National Report in today’s Globe & Mail, and can also be found at greatplacetowork.ca/.
Ideaca was surveyed on the areas of credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie, with results particularly high in the fairness category scoring 99% on a number of questions. According to the survey results, Ideaca employees strongly feel that Ideaca is a safe and friendly place to work, management is honest and ethical in its business practices, and employees care about each other.
“Ideaca prides itself in being comprised of good people doing good work with strong core values and sense of community, said Mike Alkier, Managing Partner. “Ideaca has always made our people a priority and worked hard to ensure a happy and healthy workplace. We are very pleased that Ideaca employees have expressed such positive feedback and will make every effort to ensure we’re on this list for years to come.”
This list of “Best Workplaces in Canada” is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a 58-statement survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
This year’s list received over 230 nominations and approximately 44,000 employees participated in the 2011 “Best Workplaces in Canada” survey.
