Hershey Canada has been awarded the top spot on the Forbes list of Canada's Best Employers 2024.
The award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., and the companies selected to be Canada's Best Employers 2024 is made through an independent survey from a sample of more than 40,000 Canada-based employees from all industry sectors working for companies employing at least 500 people within Canada.
Over 900 thousand employer evaluations were considered. The final score is based on two types of evaluations:
Personal Evaluation: Employee's current opinion of their employer overall: respondents were asked to gauge their overall willingness to evaluate their employer to family and friends.
Employee's Previous Employers: respondents were also asked to rate their willingness to recommend any previous employers of the last two years.
Public Evaluation: Participants were also given the chance to evaluate other employers in their respective industries, or the employers of friends, acquaintances, and family members that stand out either positively or negatively.
"Earning the number one ranking on Canada's list of best employers is an incredible honor that speaks to our exceptional workplace culture and talented employees across the country," says Herjit Bhalla, vice-president Canada, APAC & Middle East for The Hershey Company. "At Hershey Canada, we foster an environment of care, appreciation and continuous growth so that all team members can develop professionally while bringing moments of goodness to our consumers each day. I want to congratulate and thank our remarkable team who make Hershey Canada such a fantastic place to work."
