February 10, 2010

Toronto ON, February 10,2010 - Wakefield Canada Inc is pleased to be named among the Top 50 Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada. Ranking in the top half of the list again this year, Wakefield Canada has emerged as a Canadian business leader by grasping an opportunity for excellence in the automotive aftermarket. The study, now in its fifth year, is published in the Globe and Mail.

“We’re delighted to receive this accolade for a second year. This recognition is particularly important because it is based on the feedback that every member of Wakefield had an opportunity to provide during the employee survey process, ” said Bob MacDonald, President, Wakefield Canada Inc

“Our fifth anniversary will be celebrated this summer; we are delighted how far our company has come during this period and are committed to build an internal culture that continues to be recognized by our employees as a “great place to work” added MacDonald.

Becoming a Top Best Small and Medium Employer is a very detailed and competitive process. This national awards program recognizes top employers with between 50 and 400 employees. This study mirrors the renowned Best Employer in Canada initiative run by partner, Hewitt Associates; however, caters to smaller businesses.

The rankings are primarily determined using the results from Employee Opinion Surveys. Here, 18 key engagement drivers are detailed and analyzed. The evaluation process also includes the assessment of organization practices and perspectives from the leadership team. This year, more than 250 companies across Canada registered to participate in the study.

Study partners include Queen's School of Business, Queen’s Centre for Business Venturing and Hewitt Associates. More information about the Best Small & Medium Employers in Canada is available online at http://business.queensu.ca/qcbv/sme.
