The Great Place to Work Institute, an organization whose mission is to “improve society by creating better workplaces,” has released its annual list of the 100 Best Workplaces in Canada.

The list is compiled using a survey tool the institute calls the “Trust Index.” According to the website:

“This is part of the world’s largest annual workplace study, which culminates in a series of national lists in almost 50 countries, including the study’s flagship list of 100 Best companies published annually in Fortune magazine. Globally, this survey represents the voices of 11 million employees. It’s what makes this study so credible: the primary determinant used in selecting winners is an employee survey. There’s only one way to get on this list – and that’s if your employees put you there.”

There are a few lists, actually, and they include the top 100 large/multinational (1000 employees) companies to work for, and the top companies for women to work for.

Without further ado, here are the top five of each. You can see the lists in their entirety here.
