SAS Institute Canada once again recognized in the list of Best Workplaces™ in Canada

SAS Institute Canada Inc. has been recognized as a Best Workplace for the sixth consecutive year, landing No. 23 on the 2021 list of Best Workplaces™ in Canada. This list, and related stories, will appear in a Special National Report on Friday April 16, 2021 in The Globe and Mail.

“We are honoured to be recognized in this and previous years’ list of Best Workplaces™ in Canada,” said Cameron Dow, President, SAS Canada. “Receiving this award for six consecutive years is a true testament to our ongoing commitment to creating a positive work environment where all of our employees feel valued.”

The 2021 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute. The competition process to be ranked on this list is employee driven, based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results and the remaining one-third from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to five trust-building dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

This year’s list captured the experience and sentiment of over 82,000 employees, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees.

Earlier in 2021, SAS Canada was recognized as a Best Workplace™ for Women. In 2018 SAS Canada launched the Women in Analytics Network to strengthen diversity in the analytics field. This program leverages the SAS values of authenticity, value for work/life balance and passion to build a community of women, inside and outside of SAS, who work to advocate for women in the field of analytics.
