Kruger Products L.P. was recognized as one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers (2022). The company celebrates the achievements and dedication of its employees through a variety of initiatives, including the Bravo! Bravo! instant recognition program, the CEO Award for a person or team who has had an extraordinary impact on the business, and performance rewards in specific categories; the company’s recognition program was also extended to include family members of employees who are front-line workers (program is called Healthcare Heroes).
It also created the #RollingItForward campaign to support health care workers and local communities — initiatives include significant tissue product and monetary donations to local food banks and hospitals, a $200,000 donation to The Frontline Fund, and leveraging its partnership with Mercedes-Benz Canada to deliver 30,000 care packages to front-line health care workers.
Kruger Products supports employee efforts to prioritize health and wellness through a Wellness Wednesday initiative, with programming on physical and mental health — additionally, the organization provides access to virtual platforms such as Dialogue (24/7 access to health care professionals) and Headspace (an app to help with meditation and sleep)
ABOUT THE COMPETITION
This year marks the 16th annual edition for our Greater Toronto’s Top Employers competition, which has become the benchmark in the Greater Toronto Area for workplace best-practices. The competition has become exceptionally strong and competitive — so much so that, for Toronto-area employers, the minimum scores to secure a place on the GTA list routinely rank among the highest in the nation. Its 2022 winners were announced on December 3, 2021 in a special magazine in The Globe and Mail.
