Loblaw Earns Top Employer For Young People Award For The Fourth Consecutive Year

BRAMPTON, ON, Sept. 25, 2013 /CNW/ - (TSX: L) - Loblaw Companies Limited (Loblaw), one of Canada's largest private sector employers, has been recognized as one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People of 2013 by Mediacorp for the fourth consecutive year. The only grocery retailer to earn this distinction this year, the honour recognizes Loblaw's commitment to the recruitment, development and promotion of young talented graduates.

"We strive to recruit the most talented graduates from across the country and to support and nurture their development throughout their careers at Loblaw," says Judy McCrie, executive vice president, Human Resources and Labour Relations, Loblaw Companies Limited. "We are committed to set each of them up for long-term success by providing them with a positive work environment and unique learning and growth opportunities."

Loblaw's ability to attract and retain young workers helped make it stand out from more than 3,250 nominations. Companies are evaluated based on criteria such as work atmosphere and physical workplace, vacation time, opportunities to develop talents and advance in an organization, tuition reimbursement programs and leadership courses, to name a few.

"Being a "foodie", I wanted to find an industry for which I was passionate about - the food industry was a natural fit. I started my career here at Loblaw in the first intake of the grad@loblaw program in 2009. The Grad program was an excellent way to get started into the company; gave me an opportunity to spend six months working in a store - which was absolutely critical to my role today," said Gregory Hilborn, senior category manager,  Discount Division, Loblaw Companies Limited.

The grad@loblaw program is a permanent full-time development program that lets new grads enjoy a wide range of learning experiences as they rotate through different areas of our business. Since 2009, Loblaw has hired over 400 young employees through the program. Loblaw is accepting applications for the Spring 2014 program now until October 4, 2013. For more information or to apply please visit; www.loblawgrad.ca.

There are a number of other opportunities for young people to start their careers at the Company. Loblaw is also a certified chartered accountant (CA) training organization and actively engages in pharmacy grad recruitment, internships, and placement within Loblaw banners stores.
