Deloitte named one of the “best workplaces” in Atlantic Canada

Progress Magazine places Deloitte third in their ranking of best places to work

Deloitte’s Atlantic Canada offices in St. John’s, Saint John and Halifax have been named among the “Best Places to Work in Atlantic Canada,” ranking number three out of 20 on Progress Magazine’s August 2007 list. The program recognizes exemplary organizations with 25 or more employees. To qualify, organizations had to complete an extensive two-part survey, including an overview of the company’s policies and procedures, as well as an in-depth employee questionnaire.

"We are working to actively listen to our people and act on their recommendations as to how to best make Deloitte the standard of excellence for top talent. We could not have achieved this award without the efforts of our people."  
— Peter Brown

“To place is a thrill, but to be ranked in the top three on our first try is incredible,” says Peter Brown, Deloitte’s former managing partner for Atlantic Canada. “This honour recognizes our commitment to supporting and nurturing our people,” he adds. “We are working to actively listen to them and act on their recommendations as to how to best make Deloitte the standard of excellence for top talent. We could not have achieved this without the efforts of our people.”

This award is another in a series of external recognitions Deloitte has received for its commitment to its people. Nationally, Deloitte is one of the 50 Best Companies to Work for in Canada for 2008, according to a study by Hewitt Associates. Deloitte was also selected by Maclean’s magazine as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2008 in a study conducted by MediaCorp. “This public recognition further validates that we have focused on the right areas to help attract and retain the best people, and that we are well on our way to becoming the standard of excellence for talent,” says Larry Scott, Deloitte’s managing partner responsible for Strategy and Human Resources.
