TORONTO – Imagine working in a place where you feel respected, appreciated and you get great perks.

According to the 2010 Best Workplaces in Canada list, the people who work at Environics Communications are enjoying just that, with the company topping the list.

The Great Place to Work Institute, which is releasing the list Tuesday, says Environics is ranked number one because it has a high-trust work environment where managers are credible and the employees feel respected.

The institute also says in a statement that Environics thanks its staff by taking employees to sporting events and rock concerts.

It also offers generous long-service awards that recognize employee loyalty – for example employees who have worked for five years get $5,000 toward travel and an additional week of vacation.

The institute says the list is the result of a survey given to 40-thousand Canadian workers who were asked questions that covered credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

Organizations featured on the Canadian chapter of the study have also been automatically nominated for the first Best Workplaces in the World study, which will be published by the Institute on October, 2010.

The Great Place to Work Institute is a global research and management consultancy.
