G&K Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: GKSR) announced today that G&K Services Canada was named one of the 50 Best Employers in Canada for the ninth consecutive year. This recognition is based on a study conducted by Aon Hewitt, the global human resources consulting and outsourcing solutions business of Aon Corporation, in which they confidentially surveyed employees and leadership teams at companies across Canada.

"It is truly exciting to receive this recognition for the ninth consecutive year," said Robert Wood, President of G&K Services Canada. "Our team members continue to be highly engaged and these results, nine years in a row, are a true expression of that engagement. Year after year the message from our team is loud and clear, ‘G&K is a great company to work for and a company that I am proud to be a part of.’”
