For the seventh consecutive year, Great Place to Work has selected Hyundai Canada was selected as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada, and for the fifth year in a row, it has included Hyundai Canada on its list of Best Workplaces for Women.

Hyundai Canada, the only automaker among the 100 organizations listed, ranked 37th on the Great Place to Work’s 2024 list of Best Workplaces with 100-999 employees, and was among the 100 companies of all sizes on the Best Workplaces for Women list, which recognizes organizations that provide an outstanding and inclusive workplace environment for women.

Hyundai Canada director of human resources and administration Kirk Merrett called the seven-year run of recognition “a significant achievement.”

“It is rewarding to see how team members across every level embody our corporate culture every day and actively contribute to sustaining a positive and equitable workplace culture,” he said in a news release. “We are committed to fostering positive morale and camaraderie among our team members, as every one of them is intrinsic to building a more resilient, successful and sustainable business.”

In a news release, the company expressed its commitment to “creating a supportive and inclusive workplace that not only benefits its existing team members but also helps to attract new and rising talent to the automotive industry” and said it consistently seeks feedback from its team members for feedback through internal communications and surveys.

Hyundai Canada cited diversity, equity and inclusion as “guiding principles” for the executive leadership team and cited programs designed to build a positive workplace culture and invest in employee experience, including cross-departmental mentorship to provide a holistic understanding of the business and potential new career opportunities within the organization as well as team building and team volunteering opportunities.

The company said it supports employees’ well-being through services such as in-house health checkups, massage and dry-cleaning services, free breakfast and lunch, vehicle leasing programs and on-site sporting activities. The human resources team revises and expands employee health and wellness insurance benefits, which now include free access to a virtual vet clinic.

The 2024 Best Workplaces in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work Institute using the Trust Index team member survey. Rankings are based on employee feedback, which is analyzed to determine the extent to which the employee experience is shared by the full workforce.

Great Place to Work said it measures the differences in survey responses across demographic groups and roles within each organization to assess the quality and consistency of the employee experience to get an overall portrait of the workplace culture.
