Miller Thomson is one of the GTA’s top organizations with more than 400 employees, according to 2013 Best Employers in the Greater Toronto Area findings released on December 5.

The survey, conducted by Aon Hewitt and Queen’s University School of Business sited employee engagement as one reason all of the companies identified made the list.

“We are honoured to be named as one of the GTA’s top working environments and it is a testament to the unwavering commitment of our staff and lawyers,” said Doug Best, part of the firm’s Executive Committee.

Average employee engagement was 77 per cent among the organizations identified as 2013’s Best Employers in the GTA.”

Employee engagement drops to an average of less than 67% for employers who did not make it to the Aon Hewitt’s Best Employers list,” noted Einar Westerlund, Director, Project Development at Queen’s Centre for Business Venturing at Queen’s School of Business. “This underlines how important employee engagement is to an organization’s overall reputation.”
