H&M Canada Is Being Recognized as a Great Place to Work®

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - April 10, 2015) - H&M is being recognized as one of this year's Best Workplaces in Canada. H&M's commitment to their co-workers plays a major role in their success. H&M's values come together to form a workplace where everyone can work together at a fast pace and rely on each individual's knowledge and capabilities. H&M believes in early responsibility and from day one fosters an environment where it is possible to grow and choose new directions depending on each person's individual strengths.

"At H&M we believe that our people are one of our greatest strengths. We owe much of our success and continued growth to our colleagues. We truly believe this is a great place to work and are proud to be included on this year's list," Toni Galli, Country Manager H&M Canada.

This list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a 58-statement survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

This year's list received over 300 nominations and over 60,000 employees participated in the 2015 "Best Workplaces in Canada" survey.
