Kellogg Canada is honoured to be named among Canada’s Top 100 Employers. Now in its 20th year, the annual competition recognizes employers who lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces and forward-thinking workplace policies for their employees.

“Kellogg Canada is proud to be recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers,” said Tony Chow, president, Kellogg Canada Inc. “This recognition reaffirms our commitment, dedication and leadership in offering an engaging, diverse and inclusive workplace for our employees across the country. We are both humbled and honoured to be among such esteemed company and congratulate all of this year’s winners.”

Other companies include Danone and Irving Oil (see related article here).

Following a rigorous assessment of more than 10,000 submissions against key criteria, Kellogg Canada got top marks for its Physical Workplace, Work Atmosphere and Communications, Financial Benefits and Compensation, Training and Skills Development, Employee Engagement and Performance, and Community Involvement – all of which make Kellogg a top employer and great place to work.

“At Kellogg, everything starts with our people. They are our competitive advantage and the fuel that powers everything we do,” said Chow. “Along with our foods and brands that matter, it’s the extraordinary quality of our employees, the strength of our culture and our heart and soul that brings us together and continues to set Kellogg Canada apart.”

Almost a century ago, during the height of the global great depression, Kellogg Company founder, W.K. Kellogg, said “I’ll invest my money in people.” In doing so, he donated nearly all of his wealth to create the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

“Our visionary founder instilled in us the understanding that a critical part of running a good business is also doing good for society,” said Chow. “That’s why giving back to our communities and employee volunteerism – from volunteering at the local food bank and breakfast club, to annual team building events, and more – is especially important to us.”
