VANCOUVER, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Lions Gate Marketing Company Ltd. (LGM) is being recognized as one of this year's Best Workplaces in Canada. This list, and related stories, will appear in a special national report on Thursday April 19, 2012 in The Globe and Mail.
LGM accredits the philosophy behind its core values as a fundamental reason for placement on this honorable list. Integrity, Respect, Continuous Learning, Service Excellence and Giving Back are the guiding principles upheld by each employee and are continuously demonstrated through business practices. These core values create a nurturing environment for employees, help to define the company's corporate culture, and contribute to LGM's success in the business marketplace.
"Employee development, innovative people programs and team building continue to be our focus," said Adam Hill, Chief Executive Officer of LGM. "Highly satisfied people are the single largest resource in our rapidly growing company. I am impressed by the dedication of our workforce, and extremely proud to be recognized as a Great Place to Work for a fifth consecutive year. This accomplishment serves a reminder to us all that being supportive of our employees' needs will attract and retain top talent".
This list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a 58-statement survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a Great Place to Work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
This year's list received over 230 nominations and over 49,000 employees participated in the 2012 "Best Workplaces in Canada" survey.
