We’re thrilled to announce the 2019 winners of the Randstad Employer Brand Research (REBR) awards! All of the winners were selected through an impartial survey. Hundreds of companies that have operations in Canada were graded on 10 factors including: salary and benefits, career progression, financial health, contributions to society, interesting job content, job security, work atmosphere, use of the latest technology, reputation, and work-life balance.
