Construction company EllisDon has been recognized as one of the top employers for Canadians over the age of 40 for 2016 for the sixth consecutive year.
The competition is managed by the editors of the Canada's Top 100 Employers program and the results have been published annually since 2001. This year's 15 winners were selected based on their performance in eight categories, include developing programs that assist older workers; recruiting new workers aged 40 years or older; offering a pension plan with reasonable employer contributions; and extending health coverage and benefits to retired workers.
EllisDon stands out for providing older employees with retirement planning assistance; phased-in work options as retirement nears; and contributions to a defined contribution pension.
