Irving Oil, Medavie Blue Cross and the University of New Brunswick have once again been included in the list of Canada’s Top 100 employers.

Now in its 19th year, Canada’s Top 100 Employers project is a national competition organized by Mediacorp Canada Inc. to determine which employers lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces for their employees. Founded in 1992, Mediacorp is the nation’s largest publisher of employment periodicals.

The 7,500 applicants were rated based on a variety of factors such as their physical workplace; financial, health and family benefits; training and skills development and community involvement, among others.

This was Irving Oil’s second year on the list.

“At Irving Oil, it’s our people that make this a great place to work, grow and thrive,” says Sarah Irving, Executive Vice-President of Irving Oil. “Our employees, and the good energy that they bring to the business every day drive this company forward. Thanks to their contributions and hard work, we’re in a position to receive this honour.”

It was the third time in a row for Medavie Blue Cross.

“We stand out because of our people and our employees are key to our strength,” said Eric Laberge, President Medavie Blue Cross. “Employees know they are part of a collaborative team which is who we are as a culture. Their passion and commitment means that we can provide the best service to our members and customers.”

It was the fifth time UNB made the list. Eddy Campbell, president of UNB, says their high standing makes it easier to keep recruiting more great people.

“We’re so pleased to be named as one of the country’s top employers again this year,” says Campbell. “Our reputation as a leading employer allows us not only to keep our talented workforce but to recruit some of the best people in the nation and abroad.”

“Having great employees is what allows us to be one of Canada’s top comprehensive universities year in and year out.”
