McGill returns to workplace culture Top 10 list
By McGill Reporter Staff
McGill was recently named a winner in the competition for Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures of 2012. The University claimed a place in the Broader Public Sector category.
“We are proud to rank for a second consecutive year among Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures,” said Lynne B. Gervais, Associate Vice-Principal (Human Resources). “A university is defined by its people: students, faculty, professionals, administrative and support staff. Thanks to their contribution, McGill thrives on a culture of excellence and service to society.”
The award, managed by Waterstone Human Capital, recognizes the importance of great workplaces, where culture has helped enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage. Winning organizations were measured on vision and leadership; cultural alignment, measurement and sustainability; rewards, recognition and innovative achievements; organizational performance; and corporate social responsibility.
A 32-member board of governors – consisting of top executives from the private and public sector from across Canada, most of whom represent an organization that is a past winner of the program – reviewed submissions. Waterstone Human Capital is an executive search firm specializing in recruiting and cultural assessment.
