LONDON, ON – At a ceremony Thursday evening in Toronto, Ontario, JMP Engineering Inc. (JMP) was once again recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada. This list, and related stories, appeared in a special national report in the April 10, 2015 issue of The Globe and Mail.
Over the course of its 28-year history, JMP has been committed to creating an environment where employees are empowered to thrive. One of JMP’s core values is respect for people. It promotes an environment of mutual respect for employees, customers, and partners, by treating others with dignity and respect, seeking first to understand, rewarding contributions, and celebrating achievements.
“It is an honour to be recognized by the Great Place to Work Institute for the third year in a row,” said Scott Shawyer, President and CEO of JMP Engineering. “Our corporate values are extremely important to us, both as a company, and individuals. Respect, collaboration and integrity are just a few of the characteristics that constitute the JMP way. This award belongs not just to the company, but more so to our employees who make JMP a great place to work year after year.”
This list of “Best Workplaces in Canada” is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria. Two-thirds of the total score comes from a 58-statement Trust Index Employee Survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization. The remaining one-third of the score comes from the Culture Audit Management Questionnaire – an in-depth review of the organization’s culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures.
The methodology is rigorous and objective, setting a global standard for defining great workplaces from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. This process provides key information relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
This year’s list received over 300 nominations and over 60,000 employees participated in the 2015 “Best Workplaces in Canada” survey.
