Arup receives Greater Toronto’s Top Employers 2020 Award
Arup is proud to be named one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers for the third consecutive year. The winners were announced on December 6, in a special magazine published in The Globe and Mail.
Here are some of the reasons why Arup was selected as one of Greater Toronto's Top Employers for 2020:
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 provides paid time off to volunteer, allowing employees to offer their expertise and skills through pro bono work with charitable partners – the firm also matches employee donations dollar for dollar, to a maximum of $10,000 per year.
Arup supports employees who are new parents with maternity and parental leave top-up payments, to 100 per cent of salary for six weeks.
Arup has been operating in Canada for almost 20 years through established offices in Toronto and Montreal. Arup’s work helps to shape the future of cities through better transportation, healthcare, education and infrastructure. In Toronto, Arup led the design of two new subway stations as part of the Toronto-York Spadina subway extension, and 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 14th 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 and forward-thinking programs. The annual competition is open to any employer with its head office in the Greater Toronto Area; employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector.
