Press Release: Bounteous Named Greater Toronto's Top 2021 Employers
TORONTO—December 4, 2020—Bounteous has been named to the Greater Toronto's Top 2021 Employers, a snapshot of the most dynamic workplaces in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). For Toronto-area employers, the minimum scores to secure a place on the GTA list routinely rank among the highest in the nation.
The Greater Toronto’s Top Employers competition recognizes companies like Bounteous with the most progressive human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies. From industry leaders in finance and software development to world-class healthcare, public sector, and nonprofit organizations, Bounteous was graded on criteria ranging from physical work and social atmosphere to health and financial, vacation and time off, training and skills development, and community involvement.
"The Toronto team has strategically partnered to shape Bounteous into one of the industry’s leading independent digital transformation agencies, recognized for its thought leadership, strategic co-innovation client enablement model, and global award-winning culture," said Mike Brown, Bounteous Chief Client Officer in Toronto. "We’ve been extremely fortunate to be well-positioned for attracting the city’s best talent, and are on track to have more than 100 team members in the GTA by the end of the year."
The recognition follows a heavy awards season for Bounteous and its second major win in Canada in the fourth quarter of 2020. Bounteous was designated a Great Place to Work® Canada, benchmarked against the nation’s top best workplaces.
During an unprecedented year, Greater Toronto’s Top 2021 Employers continue to provide inspiration for how they care for employees and support the community in Canada’s largest metropolis. This year’s winners stand out for their resilience—and for going the extra mile to look after employees and support the community.
"It’s hard not to be impressed by the dynamism of employers that make their home in the GTA, and by the remarkably diversified economy they have created," said Anthony Meehan, Publisher at Mediacorp. "In a year that will be seared in most of our memories by the pandemic and the difficult social questions it raised, these employers remind us why we choose to make this place our home. The winners are often peerless in their own fields – but this year we also saw how they have placed the welfare of their employees and health of their community at the heart of their organizational purpose."
The full list of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers for 2021 was announced in a special
edition of The Globe and Mail. Winners and detailed reasons for selection are featured on the competition homepage here. To join the ranks of a top-rated employer in Toronto, see Bounteous’ openings.
