CIMA+ reaffirms its position among the best employers in Canada and once again achieves Platinum Level

AON Best Employer 2017

Laval, November 15, 2016 – CIMA+ is proud to be part of the Best Employers in Canada list, once again, and maintain its position at the Platinum Level, which is exclusively reserved for organizations that achieved the best results in the Aon Hewitt survey. CIMA+ is again, the only consulting engineering firm to be part of the 2017 Platinum category.

“At CIMA+, we believe that we have a high level of customer satisfaction because our employees are motivated and happy in their work – you can’t have one without the other,” said François Plourde, President and CEO of CIMA+. “Our most recent survey shows that 92% of our clients say they are mostly or very satisfied with CIMA+. Such a result is only possible because we pay a lot of attention to our employees’ working conditions, such as life/work balance.”

One of the most telling aspects of the Aon Hewitt survey is the engagement rate, which illustrates employees’ commitment and motivation. The survey results are eloquent, expressing that 87% of our employees would not hesitate to recommend CIMA+ to a friend who is looking for employment opportunities, and that 84% declared that they are proud to be part of the organization.

“We have participated in the Aon Hewitt national survey for five years, because it is our employees who evaluate us as an employer. This allows us to gather crucial information in order to meet their needs, and maintain our position among the engineering firms most coveted by candidates,” said Eric Dumouchel, Vice President, Human Resources.

As an engineering firm committed to social responsibility, CIMA+ integrates its employees’ concerns in terms of working conditions, training, promotion of diversity, as well as occupational health and safety. Every two years, CIMA+ publishes a social responsibility report that describes the overall practices we have implemented in this regard.
