The City of Mississauga was recognized by Forbes as one of Canada’s Best Employers for the fourth year in a row; ranking among the top 25 per cent of all Government Services organizations in Canada and top 17 per cent of all 300 companies receiving recognition.
“This achievement is a testament to the City’s outstanding leadership and the continued dedication its employees show in the work they have done and continue to do every day, especially during these challenging times,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “I’m proud to be a Mayor of a city that fosters such a positive workplace culture and job satisfaction. The City’s ongoing commitment to transparency and accountability, and its ability to attract and retain top talent, have helped us win this honour for four consecutive years, and are a large part of the reason why Mississauga continues to thrive and deliver the high-quality services our residents expect and deserve.”
This is the fourth time the City has received this achievement, earning this designation in 2020, 2021 and 2022. According to Forbes, the annual list is developed based on independent surveys of over 12,000 employees working part-time or full-time for companies employing at least 500 people in Canada. The 2023 list features companies and corporations across Canada, including 24 Mississauga-based businesses.
“Part of what makes us a leading employer is the support that we have in place for our employees,” said Paul Mitcham, City Manager and Chief Administrative Officer. “We offer many learning and educational opportunities for professional development that give staff the opportunity to grow in their careers at the City, and we see this reflected in the long service many employees achieve. We are also focused on continuing to make the workplace a welcoming one – one that is respectful and inclusive that provides access to resources when our employees need it.”
