Yesterday, TTC CEO Andy Byford and Chief People Officer Gemma Piemontese proudly accepted an award recognizing the TTC as one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers.
The award, a project of Mediacorp Canada Inc., acknowledges the progress the TTC has made in achieving the People objective of its Five-Year Corporate Plan, which strives to foster an empowered, customer-focused workforce and be an organization that actively develops its 14,000 employees.
To be recognized as one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers, the TTC was evaluated using eight criteria:
1. Physical workplace
2. Work atmosphere and social
3. Health, financial and family benefits
4. Vacation and time off
5. Employee communications
6. Performance management
7. Training and skills development
8. Community involvement
“I am immensely proud that the TTC was recognized for this prestigious award,” said TTC CEO Andy Byford. “Our workforce is a diverse one that serves this great and diverse city. TTC employees come to work everyday knowing that, without them, this city would not function. As a public service, our vision for the TTC is to be a transit system that makes Toronto proud.”
The competition is open to any employer with its head office in the GTA; employers of any size may apply, whether in the private or public sector. More information about the award can be found at http://www.canadastop100.com/toronto/.
