FCT named to 2020 Best Workplaces™ in Canada and Best Workplaces™ for Women lists
OAKVILLE, April 17, 2020 – FCT, the national leading technology and service provider in real estate, today announced it is one of the Best Workplaces™ in Canada for the sixth consecutive year, according to the Great Place to Work® Institute. Last month, the company was also recognized by the Great Place to Work Institute as one of the nation’s Best Workplaces™ for Women.
Organizations listed on the Best Workplaces™ in Canada list are chosen based on feedback provided by their employees in a survey and Great Place to Work Institute’s in-depth review of company practices and programs.
“In the current environment, earning the recognition from the Great Place to Work® Institute as one of Canada’s Best Workplaces takes on added significance,” said Michael LeBlanc, CEO, FCT. “While these results reflect our great work prior to the pandemic, we remain committed to providing our employees with a supportive and engaging work environment.”
To qualify for the list of Best Workplaces™ for Women, organizations must have been Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year, as well as provide programs and practices that promote the fair treatment and advancement of women.
“We pride ourselves on fostering a work culture where every employee is empowered to be their best selves and feel comfortable in the workplace, regardless of gender,” said Leblanc. “This recognition validates our commitment to promoting inclusion and providing our staff with the tools they need to be successful. We look forward to continuing to create a culture that embraces belonging and supports innovation among all employees.”
Earlier this year, FCT was also recognized as one of the Great Place to Work® Institute’s Best Workplaces™ for Inclusion. Looking forward, FCT is committed to supporting the health and safety of our employees, customers and the communities in which we operate, while providing the most consistent level of service possible amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
