Law firm Stikeman Elliott LLP has been named as one of the 50 Best Employers in Canada for 2010 by the Report on Business, La Presse and Hewitt Associates, placing 12th in the country. The results were compiled from surveys of over 108,000 Canadian employees with input from leading human resources professionals. The survey measures factors such as the employee's desire to remain and advance in their workplace, how employees represent their employer to others and their desire to contribute to the overall success of the organization. Each organization's human resources response to the economic recession was also noteworthy, according to Hewitt Associates, the consulting firm which compiled the data. The firm's selection for the 50 Best Employers honour comes on the heels of being named, for the second year in a row, as a Top 100 Employer in Canada in a Maclean's magazine/MediaCorp. survey and as a Top 90 Employer in the Greater Toronto Area in a survey conducted by the Toronto Star.
