G&K Services Named One Of The 50 Best Employers In Canada For The 10th Consecutive Year (Graphic: Business Wire)

G&K Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:GK) is proud to announce that G&K Services Canada was named one of the 50  Best Employers in Canada for the tenth consecutive year. This recognition is based on the results of a study conducted by Aon Hewitt, a global human resources consulting and outsourcing firm.

"Receiving this recognition for the tenth consecutive year marks a significant milestone in our company’s history – one that I knew we could, and would, achieve," said Robert G. Wood, President of G&K Services Canada. "At G&K, the input of each team member is not only valued, it’s encouraged and expected. Helping people and teams develop and succeed together is integral to our culture, and is built into our company’s core values. These results, a decade in the making, are an expression of our collective engagement, and a true reflection of the passion and commitment that drives our team.”

“G&K has a world class team, so it’s gratifying to receive this recognition,” said Douglas A. Milroy, G&K’s Chief Executive Officer. “Being named a Best Employer for ten consecutive years is a tremendous achievement. We are proud to be one of a select few companies in Canada that can celebrate this distinction.”

The primary requirement for being recognized as a  Best Employer is creating and sustaining a highly engaged workforce. This is measured by surveying each participating company’s employee base. The results of this survey provide organizations with the opportunity to learn about employee perceptions across key drivers of engagement, such as senior leadership and manager effectiveness, enabling employee productivity, and employee value and appreciation.

G&K Services Canada has a long history of excellence, both as an employer and as a leading provider of uniforms and facility services. The company is the market leader in Canada, employing approximately 1,300 people, many of whom have been with the company for more than 20 years. G&K’s success in engaging employees is built around a culture that promotes openness, collaboration and a commitment to continuous learning and professional development.
