OTTAWA, January 18, 2019 – Egg Farmers of Canada is honoured to be named as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People for 2019. The award recognizes the best workplaces across Canada for young people starting their careers right out of university.
“Young people are tremendously valuable in our workplace. They bring fresh, new ideas to the table, and are keen to develop and hone their skills,” says Tim Lambert, Chief Executive Officer at Egg Farmers of Canada. “We want to provide the best developmental opportunities for all our employees, and we want to help guide and grow our young people to be successful in their careers.”
Egg Farmers of Canada’s employee-centric culture and a commitment to giving back to the community are just some of the reasons why young people want to work there. Careers are enriched through professional development and specialized leadership training. Staff have a range of opportunities to grow in their role, take on a great deal of ownership towards their projects, and participate in activities that directly engage them in our commitment to giving back.
This approach to human resources and employee engagement complements Egg Farmers of Canada’s mission to position the egg industry as a leader in Canada’s agricultural future, and their vision where everyone—whether it be due to want or need—can enjoy the immeasurable benefits of the humble egg.
While this is the first time Egg Farmers of Canada has received this honour, they have been named as one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures by Waterstone Human Capital since 2014 and a National Capital Region’s Top Employer for six consecutive years. These recognitions demonstrate Egg Farmers of Canada’s commitment to their employees, and young people are no exception.
