Norima Named One of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers for 2018

Winnipeg (April 18, 2018) Norima Consulting Inc. (“Norima”) is proud to announce that it has been named one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers for 2018, announced this past Friday by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers at Mediacorp Canada Inc.

Norima is committed to creating a great workplace culture for all employees, which includes continual investment and innovation in all parts of our business. We are passionate about creating a culture of continuous growth and development.

“As a professional services company, our people are the most important part of our business. Creating an environment where people feel empowered and engaged is vital,” says Chief Executive Officer David Kuik. “We have an incredible team of professionals who choose to work for us and I am proud to be part of that team. As we grow, our goal is to continue to be a great place for great people to do great work.”

Norima, like many other companies on the list, combines the entrepreneurial feel of working at a small organization with the kinds of perks and benefits once offered only by larger employers.

“For most working Canadians, it really is like finding the Holy Grail,” says Richard Yerema, Managing Editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp Canada Inc. “These employers offer fun, interesting, engaged workplaces where you can still get benefits like…a decent retirement savings plan. It’s an attractive combination for employees looking to get the best of both worlds.”

Now in its 5th year, Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers is an editorial competition that recognizes the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with the nation’s best workplaces and forward-thinking human resources policies. Employers were evaluated by the editors at Canada’s Top 100 Employers using the same criteria as the national competition: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their industry to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. The annual competition is open to any employer with its head office or principal place of business in Canada. Employers must have less than 500 employees worldwide, including employees at affiliates, and be a commercial, for-profit enterprise.
