LONDON, ON – JMP Solutions (formerly JMP Engineering) today announced that it is being named as one of this year’s Best Workplaces™ in Canada for medium-sized companies given by the Great Place to Work® Institute. JMP has been a certified Great Place to Work® now for six years in a row. This Great Place to Work® certification and Best Workplaces™ award offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture and business excellence.
The list of Best Workplaces™ Canada is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The first step is receiving a Great Place to Work® certification. To be certified as a Great Place to Work, employees are sent a Trust Index survey where at least two-thirds of employees must complete the survey and JMP must achieve a trust index score of at least 75% to be considered. In addition to the survey, there is an evaluation of the company’s HR Policies and Procedures. This year, JMP’s overall Trust Index© score was 87% with a participation rate of 86%. This achievement was announced in the fall of 2017 by the Great Place to Work® Institute, allowing JMP to be eligible and considered for the Best Workplaces™ National list.
To achieve a Best Workplaces award, an additional Culture Audit© must be completed and submitted for evaluation by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada against all the other companies within the size category. JMP was awarded with Top 50 Best Workplaces™ in Canada for medium-sized companies, ranking #29 overall.
“It’s a true honour to be recognized by the Great Place to Work® Institute for the sixth year in a row,” said Scott Shawyer, President and CEO of JMP Solutions. “The Best Workplaces™ award pays tribute to our employees who truly make JMP a great place to work. JMP’s core values are extremely important to each individual who works here – we strive to align ourselves with every value and allow it to show through the work we perform.”
JMP has been committed to providing a workplace where employees can thrive, grow and truly enjoy what they do for more than 30 years. One of the company’s core values is Collaboration – sharing ideas, best practices and working towards a common goal. Year over year, JMP focuses on enhancing team culture, celebrating achievements and building a workplace where employees are respected, motivated and appreciated.
