Niagara Falls, Canada (August 28, 2012) The Scotiabank Convention Centre, in Niagara Falls (SCCN) proudly 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 engaging their employees.
“I always recognized the dedication and passion of our team members was building to something extraordinary and very special,” says Kerry Painter, President and General Manager at the Scotiabank Convention Centre, “To be recognized alongside companies such as Disney, Zappos, 3M, KPMG, and many other North American organizations whose reputations are synonymous with employee excellence is amazing; we are ‘blown away’ with excitement and pride. All of us have devoted time and energy to more than just ‘meeting the numbers’, but to also create a working environment that recognizes those who deliver the experience and love to do what they do every day.”
“Every one of our employees has made us what we are,” says Tammy Sweeney, Director of Human Resources at the Scotiabank Convention Centre, explaining some the many activities that she and others have designed at the SCCN to create a highly committed team. “We work under a corporate mantra that says: WE ARE ALL LEADERS. This means that through regular activities and employee functions, we create a workplace that’s challenging and engaging; it encourages all our team members (from all levels) to feel and know that they add value to the overall success of the organization.”
“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.”
The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ Awards panel of judges evaluated each applicant based on the Eight Elements of Employee Engagement™: Communication, Leadership, Culture, Rewards & Recognition, Professional & Personal Growth, Accountability & Performance, Vision & Values and Corporate Social Responsibility.
The Scotiabank Convention Centre will be honoured alongside other recipients of this year’s Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ Award at the awards gala on November 14, 2012 at the Arcadian Court in Toronto, Ontario.
