November 24, 2011

Survey results based on employee feedback; company ranks 11th

TORONTO - Employee development and engagement are just two reasons why OMERS has earned a spot on the list of Best Employers in the Greater Toronto Area.

The results were announced in The Toronto Star today, with OMERS ranking 11th on the list for larger employers – the only pension plan included. Aon Hewitt compiled the list after reviewing engagement levels at over 260 organizations. A key requirement to be a Best Employer is high employee engagement.

OMERS has been on Aon Hewitt's list of 50 Best Employers in Canada for the past four years and is proud to be considered one of the GTA's best workplaces.

“OMERS has a culture that is open and supportive and also fosters personal growth and development. Our employees have a strong sense of pride in both the organization itself and the actual day to day work that makes a real difference in people’s lives,” says Warren Bell, Chief Human Resources Officer of OMERS.

OMERS also received the distinction of 2011 Pension Fund of the Year, Canada from World Finance magazine in February.
