MetOcean Selected as One of Canada’s Top SME Employers 2023
Dartmouth, Nova Scotia (April 5th, 2023) MetOcean Telematics (MetOcean) is pleased to announce it has been selected, for the fourth consecutive year, as one of Canada’s Top Small and Medium Employers for 2023. This achievement comes shortly after MetOcean was named one of Atlantic Canada’s Top Employers for the fourth year running, highlighting its dedication to creating outstanding workplace environments and ongoing excellence in the small and medium enterprise (SME) sector.
Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers is an editorial competition that recognizes the small and medium enterprises that offer the nation’s best workplaces and forward-thinking human resources policies. Canada’s SME sector is tremendously important to the nation and is responsible for over half of the country’s private-sector employment.
Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers using the same eight criteria as its national competition: (1) Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement.
MetOcean was chosen as one of Canada’s Top SME Employers in 2023 for several reasons, including the company’s generous vacation policy, which offers employees three weeks of starting vacation allowance, nine personal days and paid time off over the winter holidays. MetOcean Telematics also helps employees build retirement savings through a matching RSP program and provides financial wellness education to support employees in setting and achieving long-term financial goals. In addition, MetOcean invests in ongoing employee development, offering tuition subsidies for job-related courses and professional accreditation.
“We are thrilled to once again be recognized as one of Canada’s Top Small and Medium Employers and as one of Atlantic Canada’s Top Employers,” said Ruth MacDonald, Human Resources Manager, People and Culture at MetOcean Telematics. “We take pride in our commitment to creating a positive workplace culture that supports employee growth and development. This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees and our ongoing efforts to maintain an inclusive, supportive, and client-focused environment.”
