Which Companies Are Canadian’s Sending Their CVs To?

Homegrown tech companies and the country’s big banks dominate a new ranking of the companies Canadians most want to work for. The ranking, put together by the social media site LinkedIn, named TD Bank the country’s most desirable place to work in, followed by Royal Bank of Canada and tech startup Hootsuite. Ottawa’s Shopify is in 8th position.

Daniel Roth, editor-in-chief at LinkedIn reports one of the factors that all of the companies listed have in common is that they invest in their employees. Other factors that seem to set the top companies apart from others include; Job demand – how many people are interested in a company’s job listings. Engagement with a company – do people discuss a company, or react to news from it? And Retention – how long do people stay at a given company?
