Ottawa, April 13, 2017–Egg Farmers of Canada (EFC) is honoured to be named one of the National Capital Region’s Top Employers for the fifth consecutive year.
The National Capital Region’s Top Employers is an annual competition evaluating employers based on criteria like training and skills development, community involvement, performance management, and benefits.
“Our employees are committed to excellence, which is crucial for a team that plays a hands-on role in shaping and advancing an industry as dynamic as ours,” said Tim Lambert, Chief Executive Officer at EFC. “We’re a small organization with a large mandate, so our employees are high performers because they see first-hand how their work makes an impact.”
EFC provides its nearly 60 employees with ongoing professional development and training, along with teambuilding and staff appreciation events. This vibrant work atmosphere helps employees excel in their roles while driving job satisfaction and loyalty. Employees enjoy a wide range of benefits and on-site amenities, such as a fitness room, free underground parking, ample bike racks, and a rooftop patio.
EFC represents Canada’s more than 1,000 egg farmers and farm families who believe in giving back to their communities. “We hire the best and the brightest who share that commitment and believe social license and business success are inextricably linked,” adds Lambert. This vision underpins major partnerships with Breakfast Club of Canada, Food Banks Canada, and the International Egg Foundation. The organization supports these initiatives through substantial product donations, fundraising and volunteering, ensuring more people benefit from the essential protein and nutrients found in eggs.
EFC has built a reputation as a leading agriculture organization and as an employer that maintains a progressive and forward-thinking culture. Honours like the National Capital Region’s Top Employer, being named by Waterstone Human Capital as one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures, and the Crystal Egg Award further echo EFC’s commitment to its employees.
