WINNIPEG, Manitoba – Palliser Furniture Upholstery Ltd. was named to Manitoba’s Top Employers (2020) editorial competition.

Companies in the province of Manitoba wanted job-seekers to know that they are innovating and are looking to attract more people to their organizations. That was the message from the Manitoba's Top Employers, announced in December by Mediacorp Canada Inc.

"You can see the vitality in the employers selected for the Manitoba competition," says Richard Yerema, managing editor of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp. "Each year, we are struck by the enthusiasm that Manitoba employers demonstrate for innovative workplace programs. Many of these winners have operations across the country, but they invest significant time and energy in Manitoba to create innovative, dynamic workspaces that reflect the changing nature of work."

Published annually since 2006, Manitoba's Top Employers recognizes Manitoba employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.

Employers were evaluated by the editors at Canada's Top 100 Employers using the same criteria as the national competition: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere and Social; (3) Health, Financial and Family Benefits; (4) Vacation and Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training and Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. The annual competition is open to any employer with its head office in Manitoba and employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector.
