TORONTO, Ont. — Wakefield Canada has won two recent awards for its corporate culture and human resources practices.
For the first time in its history, Wakefield was recognized for having one of Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures of 2012 in the ‘mid-market’ division. The contest is run by executive search firm Waterstone Human Capital. The selection is made by a “prestigious group of well-connected executives, from the private and public sector, most of whom represent an organization that is a past winner of the program,” the company announced.
Wakefield also was recognized as a repeat winner of the Best Small and Medium Employers in the Greater Toronto Area awards. Wakefield achieved the 17th top ranking.
“If employees speak positively about their employer, want to continue working there and go ‘above and beyond’ to help the organization succeed, we identify them as being highly engaged,” organizers explain.
Bob MacDonald, president of Wakefield Canada, thanked the company’s staff and added: “We’re not done, and it’s not easy. I thank each and every one of you for contributing to our company’s success.”
Wakefield distributes Castrol lubricants in Canada and manufactures and distributes H2Blu diesel exhaust fluid.
