PwC Canada named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People 2014

For the 6th consecutive year, PwC has been recognized by Mediacorp Canada Inc. as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People. Winners are selected based on programs they have to attract and retain younger workers including benefits and the availability of co-op programs.

Some initiatives that won PwC this honour include:

  • Flexibility — PwC supports non-traditional ways of working by encouraging employees to balance their personal and professional goals, which enables them to be more creative, adaptive and effective in the way they work.
  • Learning and development – Formal learning (classroom, e-learn), one-on-one coaching, mentoring, and team-based learning are part of PwC’s “teach-don’t-tell” approach to on-the-job coaching.
  • Global mobility – Employees wanting to broaden their experience internationally can look to secure either short or long-term international opportunities.
  • Community involvement – The PricewaterhouseCooper’s Canada Foundation hosts more than 300 Team Volunteering events for which employees can take one paid day off a year to participate in.

Learn more about what young people are looking for in the workplace. See PwC’s NextGen study: a report on the work styles and values of millennial/Generation Y employees (born between 1980-1995).

PwC Canada désigné comme l’un des meilleurs employeurs du Canada pour les jeunes en 2014

Pour la sixième année consécutive, PwC a été reconnu par Mediacorp Canada inc. comme l’un des meilleurs employeurs du Canada pour les jeunes. Les meilleurs sont choisis en fonction des programmes mis en place pour attirer et retenir les jeunes travailleurs, notamment les avantages sociaux et les programmes co-op.

Voici certaines des particularités de PwC qui lui ont valu ce titre :

  • Flexibilité — PwC appuie les méthodes de travail non conventionnelles en encourageant son personnel à établir un équilibre entre ses objectifs personnels et professionnels, ce qui permet aux employés de travailler de manière plus créative, plus souple et plus efficace;
  • Formation et développement – la formation structurée (en salle ou en ligne), le coaching individuel, le mentorat et l’apprentissage en équipe définissent l’approche de formation sur le terrain de la méthode Teach Don’t Tell de PwC;
  • Mobilité internationale – ceux qui désirent élargir leur horizon professionnel peuvent saisir des opportunités à l’étranger à court ou à long terme;
  • Engagement dans la collectivité – la Fondation PwC Canada organise plus de 300 activités de bénévolat en équipe. L’employé a droit à une journée de congé payé par année pour participer à l’une d’entre elles.

 Pour en savoir plus sur les attentes des jeunes à l’égard de leur employeur, consulter l’étude NextGen menée par PwC, qui traite des façons de travailler et des valeurs des jeunes de la génération Y (nés entre 1980 et 1995).
