Enterprise Holdings, the largest car rental company in Canada and owner of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands, has been named one of the best employers in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) by Mediacorp Canada Inc., in its annual Greater Toronto’s Top Employers competition.
The award is a benchmark commendation in the GTA for workplace best practices, and – of the 100 winners – Enterprise is the only car rental company on the list.
“The GTA has always attracted the best and brightest from across the country,” says Richard Yerema, managing editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project, which manages the GTA competition. “Other parts of Canada have long watched with dismay at the numbers of educated and talented young people moving to Toronto. But today the GTA is a beacon for talented people from around the world – and employers in this region now lead the nation when it comes to offering progressive HR policies and initiatives that reflect such a varied and diverse population.”
Winning employers who made the Greater Toronto’s Top Employers list were evaluated on eight criteria: physical workplace; work atmosphere and social; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time-off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.
“It is an honour to be recognized among such reputable employers in Toronto,” said Margi Dolan, assistant vice-president of human resources for Enterprise Holdings in Canada. “Our drive for employer excellence comes from the nature of our corporate culture, which is to take care of our employees and the communities in which they live and work.”
