It's another win for the Raps!
NBA champions Toronto Raptors have another reason to celebrate: they’ve been voted the best workplace in Canada this year, according to career site Indeed.
Despite being absent from last year’s rankings, the Raps’ parent company, Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE), topped the 2019 list of the 25 best employers in the country based on employee satisfaction.
Spirits are high at the sports organization, especially after Toronto bagged the 2019 NBA championship in June, and that energy appears to have carried over in the workplace to keep staff motivated.
“Workplace culture centres around Toronto-centric experiences and it’s nice to feel like you’re a part of the team and adding to that atmosphere,” one employee wrote in a review.
In terms of employee satisfaction, MLSE bested Indeed’s top winner last year: Fairmont Hotels.
Amid today’s tight labour market, “companies are increasingly emphasizing certain aspects that, when combined, offer a top-notch employee experience, including compensation and benefits, work-life balance, culture, management, and job security and advancement,” Indeed said.
“Now more than ever, job seekers are taking these factors into account when looking for their next job.”
