Ford of Canada is Named One of the Ten Best Companies to Work for in Canada

Recommended Posts

In addition to our recent recognition in the Globe and Mail, Ford of Canada has now been named one of the ‘Ten Best Companies to Work for in Canada’ by the Financial Post.  This special honor recognizes companies in Canada that offer tremendous employment opportunities, along with leading-edge comprehensive employee benefits.

 
“We are proud of the fact that Ford of Canada is being recognized as one of the best companies to work for,” said Dianne Craig, president and CEO, Ford of Canada. “At the heart of our success is every Ford of Canada team member; they go further every day to make Ford of Canada an exceptional place to work.”
 
Ford has a long and rich history in Canada; one that is filled with ingenuity, hard work and innovation. Over the years the company has seen tremendous change, and throughout that evolution one thing has remained strong and constant – the dedication of the Ford of Canada team. We are ONE team with ONE plan and ONE goal. Congratulations to the entire Ford of Canada team for this honor!

A few Friday funnies:

 

You Might Be Canadian If:

Your municipality buys a Zamboni before a bus.

You understand the Labatt Blue commercials.

You bring a portable TV on a camping trip so that you don't miss Hockey Night.

You can repeat the entire Molson's Canadian 'The Rant'.

You know all the words to "If I had a million dollars" by The Barenaked Ladies, including the inter-stanza banter between Steven and Ed.

You dismiss all beers under 6% as "for children and the elderly."

You remember when Alanis Morrissette was "Too Hot To Hold".

You watch MuchMusic constantly, in the hopes of occasional fleeting glimpses of The Tragically Hip.

You can sing "O' Canada" in French and actually know what the words mean.

You think Peter Mansbridge is sexy.

Seems like some like to give it but can't take it.

 

No, I can still laugh at those old jokes.....but the fact you felt the need to counter, speaks volumes.

 

You, as usual, have no idea of my intent. I am not Canadian so why would I be sensitive about Canadian jokes? Bet you never thought about that while you made your little assumption did you? You made a joke. I made a joke. Stop being so sensitive about it. :breakdance:  :breakdance:  :breakdance:

I really should close the thread since the OP pulled it off the rails in the very second post.... but I'll give it a chance to get back on track.

 

I am very skeptical in general of surveys like this for the Ten Best Companies to work for..... getting placed in the survey takes a lot of cajoling of employees by upper management.   Now I'm not saying that Ford of Canada isn't a great place to work, it has just been my experience that these surveys are more for management bonuses rather than being a true measure of employee happiness.

 

The company I work for is sometimes in one of these lists... yet I wonder how we get there given the crap that goes on here.

My company didn't crack their Top 10 this year, but it has. It's a decent enough place.

It makes for good PR and whatnot, which is fine. And Oakville is by all accounts a good plant-beer on Fridays notwithstanding (GM Oshawa has all kinds of legends revolving around booze-related shenanigans and I have no reason to doubt some of them, for reasons I won't delve into here).

Do you realize that McLuhan's statements have been trashed by most, if not all recent Science and Technology Scholars.

 

McLuhan's statements were great in the context of his time. Now they're just a dead man's words.

nah Wings, El K was right, you might be an American...an American from Michigan...if you found those funny...well...at least half of them...

 

Trying real hard they were...funny they were not.

 

Be funny or be not, there is no try to be funny.
