TORONTO, December 9, 2022 – Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) has been selected as one of Greater Toronto's Top Employers. Run by Mediacorp Canada Inc., the Top Employers competition has become the benchmark in the Greater Toronto Area for workplace best practices. This is the fifth consecutive year that TCHC has been selected as a winner.
This year marks the 17th annual edition of the competition, which recognizes employers with exceptional and progressive human resources programs, as well as forward-thinking workplace policies.
TCHC is proud to offer generous benefits to all its employees, including a defined benefit pension plan for full-time employees in which employee contributions are 100% matched. The organization’s comprehensive medical and dental benefit plans ensures that a variety of health needs are met and premiums are covered by the employer. Its compassionate, maternal and parental leave top-up payments allow employees to have peace of mind during times of transition in their lives. TCHC also offers a hybrid work model for eligible employees so that they can choose where to perform their duties. Furthermore, TCHC’s generous $1,500 tuition reimbursement funding, which is available for staff each year, creates the opportunity for continued investment in the talent and future potential of employees.
The competition has become quite competitive over the years and winners are announced each year amongst other esteemed GTA employers in a special announcement magazine in The Globe and Mail. Editors at Mediacorp evaluate employers on eight criteria including (1) physical workplace; (2) work atmosphere and social; (3) health, financial and family benefits; (4) vacation and time-off; (5) employee communications; (6) performance management; (7) training and skills development; and (8) community involvement.
