Unitron, the Kitchener, Canada-based hearing instruments creator, has been named one of the top 50 Best Small & Medium Employers in Canada for the fourth year. The company was cited for leadership, social responsibility, and cultural diversity.
The study by Queen’s School of Business, Queen’s Centre for Business, and Aon Hewitt, now in its 10th year, is published annually in PROFIT Magazine. It rates employers based on input from their own employees and attracts participation from public and private companies with 50 to 399 employees spanning all major industries and regions.
“We are honoured to once again be named as one of Canada’s 50 Best Small & Medium Employers, as ranked by our own employees. It is a recognition we highly value, and a reflection of the employee culture we have worked very hard to foster,” says Jan Metzdorff, president, Unitron. “At the core of our culture, our employees are united by a common mission to help those with hearing loss, and by a passion to go the extra mile for our hearing healthcare practitioner customers. This commitment to caring that exists company-wide is reflected in our ranking as a top 50 employer. ”
