TORONTO, April 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Place to Work® Institute Canada has named Morningstar Research Inc. (Morningstar Canada), a subsidiary of independent investment research provider Morningstar, Inc. (NASDAQ: MORN), as one of this year's Best Workplaces in Canada, for the sixth year in a row.
"Morningstar Canada is honoured to be named one of Canada's Best Places to Work, for the sixth consecutive year," said Scott Mackenzie, president and CEO of Morningstar Canada.

This list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: a survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; and an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of human resources 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.
More than 400 Canadian companies were nominated and over 80,000 employees participated in the 2018 "Best Workplaces™ in Canada" survey, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees. The full list of winners and related stories can be found at www.greatplacetowork.ca.
