New Flyer one of Canada's Top 100 Employers

Posted on October 22, 2009

New Flyer Industries Inc. was named one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for 2010. This is the fifth consecutive year that New Flyer has received this acknowledgement.

"We are once again thrilled to receive this award and feel that it is attributable to our continued commitment to organizational excellence," said New Flyer's President/CEO Paul Soubry. "We have created and continually reinforce a culture based on three simple goals: a better product, a better workplace, a better world."

The annual Canada's Top 100 Employers award recognizes employers that are industry leaders in attracting and retaining employees. Each year, Mediacorp examines the recruitment histories of more than 75,000 employers across Canada.

From this initial group, Mediacorp invites 10,000 of the fastest-growing employers, plus 6,000 other companies and organizations in industries that Mediacorp editors wants to examine more closely, to apply for this year's competition.

New Flyer was selected for its industry-leading practices, such as providing full salaries to apprentices during training, providing tuition subsidies, hosting wellness events and its retirement savings plans. New Flyer was also recognized for demonstrating leadership in its sustainability efforts, which includes maintaining environmental and safety certifications; having an environmental coordinator role; and providing volunteer, fitness and social opportunities for employees.
