Seven Oaks General Hospital has won the Best Employer Award for 50-Plus Canadians in 2012 by the Workplace Institute. The Winnipeg hospital is one of four Canadian organizations to receive the award.
The Workplace Institute recognized Seven Oaks for overhauling its healthy organization strategy to make “significant improvements in employee retention practices, retirement planning, succession, work-life balance, mentoring, knowledge transfer and various incentives to keep potential retirees engaged in and in the work force.”
This the fourth time Seven Oaks has received this award. The hospital has also been designated a Top 100 Employer in Canada by Maclean’s Magazine three times and a Top Manitoba Employer four times.
The other winners were AltaGas, a natural gas utility, Walmart Canada, and Bethany Care Society, a Calgary-based seniors housing provider.
