Arup is proud to be named one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers for the fourth consecutive year. The winners were announced on December 4 in The Globe and Mail. Here are some of the reasons why Arup was selected as one of Greater Toronto's Top Employers for 2021: 

  • Arup provides paid time off to volunteer, enabling employees to offer their expertise and skills through pro bono work with charitable partners -- the company also matches employee donations dollar for dollar, to a maximum of $10,000 per year

  • Arup invests in ongoing employee development with generous tuition subsidies for job-related courses (up to $5,250) and reaches out to the next generation of talent through paid internships and co-op placements in a variety of disciplines

  • Arup offers a full suite of financial benefits ranging from profit-sharing for all employees, to signing bonuses for some, to generous referral bonuses for employees who successfully refer a candidate from their personal network (to $5,000)

Arup has also been selected for The Career Directory, the guide to entry-level recruitment for recent college and university graduates.

Arup has been operating in Canada for 20 years through established offices in Toronto and Montreal. Working with clients, Arup delivers leading-edge work on transportation, healthcare, education and infrastructure projects and is helping to shape the future of cities. In Toronto, Arup led the design of two new subway stations as part of the Toronto-York Spadina subway extension, and also consulted on the Union Station revitalization. Our firm has provided aviation planning and design services at Toronto Pearson International Airport for over 20 years, and supported the major revitalization of Queen’s Quay West on Toronto’s waterfront.

Now in its 15th year, the Greater Toronto's Top Employers competition is an editorial project that recognizes employers with exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies. Editors at Mediacorp grade employers on eight criteria, which have remained consistent since the project's inception: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time-Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive programs.
