VANCOUVER — Great Place to Work Canada has named Joey Restaurant Group one of the best workplaces for women in 2017.
Great Place to Work Canada conducted a thorough and independent analysis on organizations that have a minimum of 50 female employees in the organization, a minimum 90-per-cent positive response to the statement “I am treated fairly regardless of my gender.” Surveyed organizations had to provide a male/female breakdown by job level.
At Joey, 52 per cent of women are in management positions, with women playing a leading role in all aspects of the business.
“This is not only a day to recognize all the great women that make up our organization, but an opportunity to illustrate the diverse careers you can have working for a progressive restaurant group,” says Leah Whitworth, regional manager for the Lower Mainland. “Joey takes developing people seriously and your performance of sales, people and growth profit directly reflects returns in your pocket. The restaurant industry is a dynamic industry that is constantly evolving. Innovation, growth and the education of our people is critical and allows us to stay on the leading edge. There’s a reason we have a 13-year average management tenure; we invest in our people in every way possible.”
The list of Best Workplaces for Women is based on direct feedback from employees of the surveyed organizations, and Great Place To Work confirms that the survey data has a 90-per-cent confidence and a plus or minus 5-per-cent margin of error.
