Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has been placed in the top 20% of employers with over 500 staff in Forbes’ Canada Best Employer 2022 list.
Compiled by Forbes and Statista Inc, the award honours 300 companies each year; in the 2022 list, OLG made it onto the final list for the first time, reaching number 53 out of 300.
“It is an honour to be recognised with a place on the Forbes Best Employers List and to know that so many of our employees would recommend OLG as a great place to work,” said Duncan Hannay, OLG’s President and CEO.
“For the best and brightest Ontarians looking for purpose in their work, OLG is a top choice employer. We’re an exciting gaming and entertainment company transforming our culture and the way that we work to ensure that we deliver great experiences for our customers, while delivering meaningful benefits to the people of Ontario.”
Canada Best Employer 2022 breaks down companies’ performance as an employer through an independent survey with 10,000 members of staff across Canada, based on whether they would recommend their own employers to friends and family.
Furthermore, subjects in the survey are also asked to evaluate other employers in the same industry that stood out in either a positive or negative manner.
“What makes this award so special is that it is employee driven,” explained Nancy Kennedy, OLG’s Senior Vice President of People and Culture.
“Our employees live by OLG’s truths, which include doing good for Ontario and playing as one team. An OLGer respects, supports and values their colleagues and celebrates different perspectives and backgrounds. That is what makes OLG such a great place to work.”
