uOttawa shines once again as one of the region's top employers

Posted on Thursday, February 5, 2015

The University of Ottawa is proud to announce that it has been named one of the National Capital Region's Top Employers for the sixth consecutive year.

To place in the Top Employers, organizations must be leaders in their field in terms of physical workplace; work atmosphere and social life; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.

Located in the heart of the capital, the University of Ottawa offers a range of benefits that contribute to making it one of the region's best places to work. Free tuition for staff, spouses and dependants and a bilingual, multicultural setting are just some of the advantages of working at uOttawa. The university also has a longstanding commitment to the community, reinforced by the Centre for Global and Community Engagement, which provides students and employees with volunteering opportunities to help those in need in countries such as Bolivia, Guatemala, Malawi, Nepal, Senegal and Vietnam.

The annual National Capital Region's Top Employers competition is sponsored by Postmedia Network Inc. and Mediacorp Canada Inc. It recognizes employers that provide exceptional workplaces and offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs compared with other organizations in their field. The rigorous selection process is overseen by an advisory board that evaluates the organizations according to specific criteria.
