ISL Engineering and Land Services ranked 4th on the list. The results of this prestigious study, now in its fifth year, are published in the Globe and Mail.

“We are very excited about winning the Top 50 Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada award. We recognize that our exceptional people are the most important part of the company and we value the contribution they make to both our clients’ and company’s success.” said Gary Mack, P. Eng., ISL Engineering and Land Services President and CEO.

Becoming a Top Best Small and Medium Employer is a very detailed and competitive process. This national awards program recognizes top employers with between 50 and 400 employees. This study mirrors the renowned Best Employer in Canada initiative run by partner, Hewitt Associates; however, caters to smaller businesses.

The rankings are primarily determined using the results from Employee Opinion Surveys. Here, 18 key engagement drivers are detailed and analyzed. The evaluation process also includes the assessment of organization practices and perspectives from the leadership team. This year, more than 250 companies across Canada registered to participate in the study.

"There are many things that we believe contribute to our success such as our family atmosphere, mentoring and teamwork opportunities, community involvement activities, and our commitment to staff training and personal growth.” said Gary Mack, P. Eng, ISL Engineering and Land Services President and CEO.

Study partners include Queen's School of Business, Queen’s Centre for Business Venturing and Hewitt Associates. More information about the Best Small & Medium Employers in Canada is available online at
