Eagle Recognised as One of Canada's Top Ten Most Admired Corporate Cultures

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 29, 2012) - Eagle Professional Resources Inc. (Eagle) is proud to announce it has been named one of Canada's Top 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures in the Mid-Market category for 2012. Presented by Waterstone Human Capital, the award recipients were selected by a board of governors consisting of well-connected executives from the Canadian private and public sector. This national program, now in its eighth year, annually recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations for having a culture that has helped them enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage.

Guided by its core values Team, Innovation, Integrity and Excellence, Eagle's positive, energetic corporate culture is well-known throughout the staffing industry. The professional staffing company's team-based environment is enhanced through initiatives such as staff social events, an internal blog to publicly recognize co-workers, and a monthly award program that recognizes team-oriented individuals that uphold the company's core values. In addition, Eagle regularly introduces new and innovative programs to preserve a sought after workplace and attract top talent. For example, all employees are treated to breakfast each morning through the company's breakfast-at-work program; an in-depth on boarding training program involves management from all levels and gives new employees a 360 degree view the entire company in their first weeks of employment with Eagle; and, most recently, Eagle implemented WORKshift - a program that encourages work/life fusion by allowing staff to enjoy flexible work arrangements.

"We have always worked very hard to create a very deliberate, team-based culture here at Eagle, a culture that we believe attracts great people," said Kevin Dee, Eagle's CEO. "We are extremely excited to get this award because not only does it tell the world we have something special here, but it is also external recognition that Eagle really is a great place to work!"

Eagle's corporate culture has been recognized and has contributed to a number of other awards over the past years, including Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies (every year since 1999), Canada's Top Small and Medium Employers (2006), and Ottawa Mid-Market Company of the Year (2011).

In 2012, ten organizations were recognized as national winners of Canada's Top 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures in each of the following four categories: Enterprise (revenues above $500 million), Mid-Market (revenues over $100 million to $500 million), Growth & Small Cap (revenues under $100 million), and Broader Public Sector.
