Walter Surface Technologies, a global supplier of surface treatment technologies, has been selected as one of  Mediacorp Canada Inc.’s Top Small & Medium Employers for a second year in a row. “Being recognized as one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers for the second year running reinforces Walter’s core purpose of contributing to our customers’ success by helping them work better. As a company, we strive to offer only the best, and that extends to our employees as much as to our clients,” said president and chief operating officer Michael Christodoulou. The editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers use eight criteria to honor the top Canadian employers: physical workplace; work atmosphere and social; health, financial & family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement. Over a thousand Canadian employers took part in the 2016 Best Employers studies. These employers were compared to other similar organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward thinking programs. “Walter prides itself on delivering the industry’s best products, services and support, which we are able to consistently achieve thanks to the company’s LEED Gold Certified head office, outstanding company culture, strong benefits programs, and performance reward systems,” added Christodoulou. “All employees are encouraged to strive for excellence and they are empowered to help achieve our corporate vision. As a result, Walter has built a thriving work environment and both our employees and our customers benefits from that.”
