BlackBerry Limited today announced it has been named as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for 2021.
This is the sixth consecutive year that the company has received recognition for being one of the country’s leading organizations with environmental programs and earth-friendly policies that actively involve their employees.
Now in its 14th year, Canada’s Greenest Employers is an editorial competition organized by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project in partnership with The Globe and Mail.
The editors evaluate and select the recipients based on four sets of criteria: unique environmental initiatives and programs developed; success in reducing their environmental footprint; employee involvement in programs and whether they contribute any unique skills; and whether their initiatives have become linked to the employer’s public identity and whether they attract new people to the organization.
This year’s Greenest Employer honor follows the eleven “employer” awards BlackBerry was recognized with in 2020, honoring the company’s comprehensive employee enrichment programs, community and culture building initiatives, and wellness and work-life balance priorities, as a global ’employer of choice’.
