TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 21, 2012) - Enterprise Rent-A-Car has been named one of Greater Toronto's Top Employers for 2013 by Mediacorp Canada Inc. in the annual competition. Of the 95 winners, Enterprise Rent-A-Car was the only car rental company named among this year's employers.
Now in its seventh year, the competition highlights companies in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) that are trail blazers in providing employees with an outstanding work environment.
"We are honoured to be ranked as a top employer in the Greater Toronto Area," says Steve Tudela, vice president and general manager for Enterprise in Toronto. "Our employees are our greatest asset and this award is a testament to our commitment of achieving employee satisfaction."
Nearly all employees at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, including the leadership team, began their careers with the company through the comprehensive and recognized Management Training Program. New management trainees learn all aspects of day-to-day operations – such as how to manage profit and loss, control expenses, effective business-to-business marketing and sales techniques, and how to implement a comprehensive business plan. As they work, new hires are also trained and groomed for advancement, since the company hires almost entirely from within. The company recently featured 22 Toronto Enterprise employees in its newest advertising campaign entitled "The Enterprise Way."
Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers based on the following eight criteria: Physical Workplace; Work Atmosphere & Social; Health Financial & Family Benefits; Vacation & Time Off; Employee Communications; Performance Management; Training & Skills Development and Community Involvement.
