The results are in! Royal LePage Performance Realty is tremendously proud to be ranked 7th in Canada for medium sized companies as a Great Place to Work®!
The results of the Best Workplaces in Canada survey were announced last night in Toronto and will be reported today in the Globe and Mail. We are so proud to be ranked not only as a Great Place to Work, but also as the Number #1 Best Workplace for Women for the second year in a row, out-seating industry titans such as Google and Microsoft, among others. Furthermore, we were also recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada in the Credibility index, with criteria based on two-way communication, competence, and integrity.
This is our seventh consecutive year as a top-ranking firm in Canada, and this year we have rated higher than ever before. This is simply outstanding, and we are the only real estate firm in Canada to rank in this survey. This is a great testimony to all our staff, sales representatives, and managers, as well as the culture and values that we choose to live by, and our willingness to work in a positive and supportive atmosphere.
Thank you to all our staff and sales representatives for your continued support and trust in Performance Realty and the Management Team. Your confidence and loyalty are truly humbling!
The Great Place to Work Institute® is a global research, consulting, and training firm that helps organizations identify, create, and sustain great workplaces through the development of high-trust workplace cultures. The competition process is based on two criteria: first, an in-depth survey completed by you; and secondly, a rigorous in-depth review of our organization’s culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. Together, they provide crucial data and an accurate portrait to the five trust-building dimensions of a Great Place to Work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. Eleven million employees around the globe, and close to 300,000 employees in Canada, participated in the 2014 “Best Workplaces in Canada” survey.
A culture cannot be dictated by policy – it has to be lived, every day, to truly show its value. We are not perfect; together we face daily challenges – yet we strive to be the best.
A great workplace is one where you trust the people you work for, have pride in what you do, and enjoy the people you work with. We have achieved this milestone by the great work, commitment and attitude brought by each and every one of you. We are immensely proud of the culture and atmosphere that exists in our firm and your achievements.
On behalf of Pierre De Varennes and the Management Team, congratulations to you for making Performance Realty once again one of Canada’s top Best Workplaces! You truly are one of a kind! Be proud of the culture that you have embraced at Performance Realty. In today’s corporate world, this indeed is a rare thing. We are truly blessed to share the same values with our colleagues!
