Two of our members are worthy of special mention this month – Lakeside Process Controls Ltd. and The Ian Martin Group.
Both companies were included in Canada’s ‘Top 50 Medium Companies with <1,000 Employees,’ as selected by Great Place to Work Institute. The list was published as a Special National Report in The Globe and Mail on April 10, 2015.
This is an incredible achievement and the CNA would like to commend them on a job well done.
In addition, both companies were among the ‘Top 50 Best Workplaces for Women.’
Lakeside Process Controls is an industrial services/engineering company located in Mississauga, Ontario, with 208 employees.
“When a new employee is hired at Lakeside Process Controls, the company has a long-standing tradition of bringing in treats and placing them at the new hire’s desk so employees are required to meet the new hire to get their afternoon snack!” mused a Lakeside rep.
This is the fifth year in a row that Lakeside has made the list.
Located in Oakville, Ontario, Ian Martin Group is a professional services/staffing company with 135 employees.
According to an Ian Martin rep:
“Each month, the CEO publishes the content of the leadership team’s last meeting. Groups meet to discuss the content, and everyone is asked to come with a Doozey of a Question (DOAQ). Teams vote on the most important question and then allocate 30 minutes in vigorous debate to that topic.”
Ian Martin made the list in 2013 and 2014, as well.
