George Brown one of Greater Toronto's Top Employers for 2019

Working at George Brown College is pretty great, but you don’t have to take our word for it.  

We’re very proud to announce that we’ve made the 2019 Greater Toronto’s Top Employers Open New Browser Window list. So, how did we earn this honour? There are many reasons. 

“We work hard to create a culture of innovation, inclusion and continuous learning,” said George Brown College President Anne Sado. “We also place great emphasis on ensuring that our community has an open and inclusive work environment and one that allows people to achieve a healthy work-life balance.” 

Employers are evaluated on the following criteria: 

  • Physical workplace
  • Work atmosphere and social
  • Health, financial and family benefits
  • Vacation and time off
  • Employee communications
  • Performance management
  • Training and skills development
  • Community involvement

George Brown provides generous top-up payments for new parents (to 93 per cent of salary for 52 weeks for mothers and up to 93 per cent of salary for 35 weeks for fathers and adoptive parents). And once those kids grow up, the college offers tuition rebates for employees’ family members. 

Employee education is supported through tuition subsidies and in-house professional development opportunities. Health and happiness are also a priority with wellness programs, extended health-care benefits and a defined-benefit pension plan. Employees have access to free fitness programs and facilities on campus.  

George Brown also prioritizes a college community free of discrimination and harassment based on gender and sexual identity and an environment that is welcoming and inclusive to all community members.

George Brown has received nods before for its great working environment and employee supports. They include: 

  • Greater Toronto Top Employers, 2018, 2017, 2015, 2012, 2010, 2009
