Being a best employer is no longer ‘nice to be’ – it is a strategic imperative for us and plays a significant part in our continued success as a company.
Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
Forensic Technology is proud to have been recognized once more as one of the Best 50 Small and Medium Employers in Canada for 2013. Sponsored by Queen’s University School of Business, Queen’s Centre for Business Venturing and AON Hewitt, the study focused on more than 200 small and medium organizations across Canada and measured the level of engagement among employees.
According to AON Hewitt’s definition, employees are engaged when they say positive things about their organization, are committed to stay with their current employer, and strive to go “the extra mile” to contribute to business success.
Forensic Technology ranked #34 on the list and was one of only 8 Quebec companies in this category.
Forensic Technology pioneered automated ballistics identification over 20 years ago and continues to be the world leader in ballistics and firearm identification technologies that promote a safer society. The company partners with hundreds of public safety agencies in nearly 70 countries around the world, providing cost-effective and sustainable solutions.
“Our research shows that high employee engagement results in lower turnover, greater employee productivity, increased customer satisfaction, less absenteeism and, in many cases, greater economic returns,” said Neil Crawford, a partner at Aon Hewitt and leader of the Best Employers in Canada study. "With that in mind, developing a roadmap for raising engagement is becoming a priority for many employers."
Robert Walsh, president of Forensic Technology explains: “Being a best employer is no longer ‘nice to be’ – it is a strategic imperative for us and plays a significant part in our continued success as a company. We take great pride in being one of the best again this year.”
The average engagement score for the Best 50 Small and Medium Employers was 84 per cent, while the average for other organizations participating in the study was 61 per cent.
