MISSISSAUGA, ON – BASF Canada has been recognized by Mediacorp as one of Canada’s Top Employers for the eighth year in a row.
Mediacorp, the country’s largest publisher of employment periodicals, cited BASF Canada for its substantial Diversity, Equity and Inclusion commitment and focus on employee development and employee support.
“This recognition is a testament to the ongoing feedback, flexibility and hard work of each of our employees,” said Apala Mukherjee, President of BASF Canada. “Together, we identify areas where we need to focus and continue developing. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and the focus on employee personal and professional success are at the top of our list.”
BASF Canada supports employees through established and new programs. In response to the pandemic, the company launched an Employee Assistance Fund to support employees needing financial funding. Additionally, since 2013, new mothers and fathers, including adoptive parents, have received parental leave for 17 weeks.
“Our success truly relies on the success of our employees. It is imperative for the company to support employees in all stages of their personal and professional career, especially when there are unforeseen circumstances like the pandemic,” said Apala.
Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers using eight criteria: physical workplace; work atmosphere and social; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.
BASF Canada’s commitment to its employees has earned the company other awards such as Greater Toronto's Top Employers (2021), Canada’s Top Employers (2021), Canada’s Safest Chemistry Employer (2021), among others.Source : basf
