Morningstar Canada Named One Of The 2013 "Best Workplaces In Canada" By Great Place To Work® Institute Canada

TORONTO, April 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Great Place to Work ® Institute Canada has named Morningstar Research Inc., a subsidiary of independent investment research provider Morningstar, Inc. (NASDAQ: MORN), as one of this year's Best Workplaces in Canada.

"Morningstar's unique culture is driven by our mission, which is to create great products that help investors reach their financial goals," said Scott Mackenzie, president and CEO of Morningstar Canada. "It is a tremendous honour for Morningstar Canada to be recognized as a great place to work, and this acknowledgement is particularly rewarding given that the results are so heavily based on direct feedback from our employees. We have great people who strive to make a difference in our business each day and ultimately set us apart from other companies."

The "Best Workplaces in Canada" list is compiled by Great Place to Work ® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a 58-statement survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of human resources policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

"Great Place to Work ® Institute would like to recognize and congratulate Morningstar Canada for its success in creating a great workplace culture," said Jose Tolovi Neto, managing partner at Great Place to Work ® Institute Canada. "Morningstar has been ranked on our 2013 list because employees told us they trust management, have pride in their jobs, and enjoy the people they work with. Employees at Morningstar care about their work, their organization, and their community."

More than 300 Canadian companies were nominated and more than 57,000 employees at those companies participated in the 2013 "Best Workplaces in Canada" survey. The full list and related stories can be found at www.greatplacetowork.ca.
