Just Energy Recognized as One of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ in Canada
Toronto, Ontario, August 27, 2012 ‐ Just Energy today announces its recognition as one of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ in Canada. This annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation towards building employee engagement.
"The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ understand these practices are not only good for employees but also the bottom line. Companies that focus on employee engagement tend to perform better financially, attract and retain the best talent and enjoy improved customer service and client retention," said Razor Suleman, Founder and Chairman of Achievers. "These companies serve as role models for other businesses to engage their own employees and build success."
Although a large company, Just Energy abides by a small business culture by instilling entrepreneurial values across its employee community. Despite the diversity of teams and business units, the company takes pride in the shared sense of purpose and collaboration. This is supported by a number of employee‐centric initiatives including dedicated communications, education and skills‐building programs, service recognition awards, annual opinion surveys, performance‐based rewards, as well as a number of seasonal social events that promote engagement and foster a sense of family and community.
"We are thrilled to be recognized with this distinction, which corroborates the corporate values we live by" said Ken Hartwick, Just Energy's President & CEO. "We fully realize that our success as a business is directly influenced by the internal culture we foster. Our mission, vision and values not only inform our customer interactions, they guide our employee relations as well. As an organization, we are committed to providing an empowering and supportive workplace that facilitates personal growth and development. With this, we can credit our overall success to every one of our dedicated, engaged and enthusiastic employee partners."
Just Energy will be honoured alongside other recipients of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ Award at a special Gala event on November 14, 2012 at the Arcadian Court in Toronto, Ontario.
