Danone Canada Named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2022

  • Recognized for a third year in a row for its forward-thinking work environment.
  • As a Certified B Corporation®, Danone Canada is committed to upholding the highest standards of business, social, and environmental performance.

Boucherville, Quebec, and Mississauga, Ontario, November 12, 2021 — Danone Canada, the country’s largest consumer facing Certified B Corporation®, is proud to be named once again as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. This designation recognizes the company’s dedication to offering its employees a forward-thinking environment with exceptional employee programs and workplace policies.

“Using our business as a force for good is at the core of what we believe,” said Dan Magliocco, President of Danone Canada. “Being recognized for a third year in a row as one of Canada’s top employers is an honor and a strong testament to our collaborative, inclusive and people-powered culture. Our employees are at the heart of everything we do, and their passion combined with the work environment we are fostering allows us to advance our mission to bring health through food to as many people as possible.’’

Here are just a few examples of what makes Danone Canada one of the country’s best places to work:

An ambition to be truly inclusive and diverse: Danone Canada’s inclusive and diversity initiatives are fuelled by a passionate group of colleagues who lead the very active Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) supporting BIPOC, LGBTQIA2S+ and female leadership opportunities.

An innovative governance model: Danone Canada believes that empowering its employees and constantly seeking employee input help them create a more inclusive and better-performing business. The “One Person, One Voice, One Share” governance model treats each Danone employee as a co-owner, giving them the opportunity to share their views to help shape the company’s future.

Creating a safe and supportive work environment: Danone Canada’s first priority is the safety & well-being of its employees. With the COVID-19 pandemic, this became even more critical. Creating a safe workplace for both office and facility workers, providing clear and regular communications and, most of all, being supportive to its employees were key factors in Danone’s pandemic management.

Recognizing Danone Canada’s journey as a purpose-driven company, Canada’s Top 100 Employers distinguishes Danone as one of the nation’s best places to work. A total of 10,000 companies were invited to participate in this latest edition. Companies were evaluated using eight criteria: work atmosphere and social, health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; community involvement and physical workplace.
