We are proud to announce that Skyline has been selected as an Aon Best Employer—Canada 2016, Gold Level

A global leader in HR consulting, Aon Hewitt compiles its highly-acclaimed and reputable list of Best Employers annually, based on comprehensive research into company policies and procedures, as well as employee engagement and satisfaction.

This past summer, our staff were asked to participate in an in-depth study pertaining to their level of engagement and job satisfaction. Skyline’s executives and human resources departments each completed additional surveys, rounding out Aon’s three separate components to the study.

Having scored a 78% engagement rate as calculated by Aon, we were selected as a Gold-Level Best Employer – a remarkable achievement for a first-time applicant!

“Being recognized as an Aon Best Employer in Canada is a very big deal to us here at Skyline,” said Martin Castellan, Co-Founder and Chief Administrative Officer of the Skyline Group of Companies. “This recognition demonstrates that we are doing right by our staff, and collectively we are fostering an environment true to our values – which I believe is one of the greatest contributing factors making Skyline a great place to work.”

Further to this recognition, the data retained from the program will give Skyline’s leadership team candid insight into our largest strengths and areas for improvement, and how we compare with other organizations on these aspects.

“Our commitment to our fellow Skyliners is that we will always work toward being better,” Castellan said. “We are using the survey results to determine additional areas for improvement, whereby we can focus on clearing the path for even greater satisfaction and engagement.”

According to Aon Hewitt’s Best Employer website, “[Employee] engagement leads to higher attraction by prospective employees, as well as better retention rates and work performance from current staff. With Aon Best Employer recognition, [companies] can attract the market visibility [they] need to hire and retain the most sought-after and high-performing talent.”

A full list of Aon Best Employers in Canada is featured in the November 2015 issue of Canadian Business Magazine, which hits newsstands today. You can also view a list of this year’s winners on the Canadian Business website.
