The annual list from LinkedIn is a useful resource for professionals at all stages of their careers, providing helpful insights into the most in-demand skills and roles. The list also includes important considerations for job seekers, such as career advancement and upskilling opportunities offered by Canada’s top employers.

“To be recognized as one of LinkedIn’s Top Companies in Canada in 2024 is an exceptional honor,” says Tom Zehren, chief executive officer at Info-Tech Research Group. “Any investment we make as an organization is an investment in our people. For close to 30 years, our employees have been not only our biggest asset but also the mind, heart, and soul that have made Info-Tech into the product leader in the research and advisory space. As we look to the future, we aspire to continue to grow as a leading employer not only in Canada but also in the US, the UK, and Australia.” 

LinkedIn has identified eight critical pillars of career growth and progression, using data gathered from its platform to evaluate organizations against each parameter. The pillars are outlined below:

  1. The ability to advance: Tracks employee movement within an organization and when they move to a new company.
  2. Skills growth: Examines how employees are gaining skills while employed at the company.
  3. Company stability: Looks at attrition over the past year and the percentage of employees that remain at an organization for at least three years.
  4. External opportunity: Focuses on recruiter outreach across employees at the company, signaling demand for its employees.
  5. Company affinity: Seeks to measure how supportive an organization’s culture is and examines connection volume among employees.
  6. Gender diversity: Measures gender parity within a company and its subsidiaries.
  7. Educational background: Evaluates the variety of educational attainment among employees, from no degree up to Ph.D. levels, to identify organizational commitment to recruiting a wide range of professionals.
  8. Employee presence: Assesses the number of a company’s employees in the country in comparison to other companies.

“Our employees show up every day with incredible commitment to collaboration and excellence, which allows us to support our members through change and enable them to reach their goals,” continues Zehren. “We have disrupted the industry many times thanks to our talented and knowledgeable teams. Continuing to invest in our people is the foundation that will lead Info-Tech Research Group to continue on our path of profitable hypergrowth.”

As proprietary research from Info-Tech Research Group’s HR firm, McLean & Company, shows, a holistic employee experience in which people’s physical, mental, emotional, social, and professional wellness is supported is becoming a progressively critical organizational priority. Additional research showcasing the immense positive potential for organizations that create psychologically safe work environments for employees and provide learning and development opportunities, such as job shadowing and sponsorship programs, points to the expanding need for organizations to adapt to increased employee expectations in the future of work.

Guided by its core values and proprietary research, Info-Tech Research Group is committed to continuing to evaluate, analyze, and evolve its processes to support its diverse workforce, including a generous annual professional development stipend for each employee, access to seven employee resource groups (ERGs), ongoing on-the-job training and coaching opportunities, and its new internal mentorship program.
