Toronto, Dec. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Seneca has been named as one of the Greater Toronto’s Top Employers for the twelfth year in a row.

The prestigious annual list of top employers is chosen based on several criteria, including training and skills development, community involvement and forward-thinking workplace policies.

“We are #SenecaProud to be on the 2022 list of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers,” said Bernie Beaulieu, Vice-President, Human Resources. “Seneca is committed to life-long learning for our employees. This includes in-house professional development options and funding to pursue new credentials during their employment.”

Opportunities available to Seneca employees include one-year paid professional development leaves, a tuition assistance program and learning modules in leadership, technology, health and wellness and communications through the Leadership and Employee Development program.

For Cindy Fong, Seneca’s Registrar, the tuition reimbursement program helped her to pursue an MBA. This program covers up to 80 per cent of tuition costs for employees.

“When I think of Seneca, I think of growth,” Ms. Fong said. “I’ve been able to explore new opportunities without leaving, and I’ve never stopped learning.”

The Greater Toronto’s Top Employer competition is conducted by Mediacorp Canada Inc. View Seneca’s profile in The Globe and Mail.
