I am absolutely delighted and honoured that CENTURY 21 Canada has been named one of North America’s "50 Most Engaged Workplaces.™ This annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation towards engaging their employees.
We at CENTURY 21 Canada head office are sharing this award – given out by I Love Rewards, a leading provider of employee rewards/recognition solutions - with every one of the 400+ CENTURY 21 broker/owners in our system. It is because of their dedication to helping CENTURY 21 sales professionals reach success, that we have earned this recognition.
Our company, as well as the other contenders, were measured against the award criteria of:
- Rewards & Recognitions
- Professional and Personal Growth
- Accountability & Performance
- Vision and Values
- Corporate Social Responsibility
To us, employee engagement means providing support to our sales professionals so they can reach their ambitions and potential; it means offering feedback, advice and encouragement to help overcome obstacles, and fostering strong relationships and a culture of community giving.
We connect our people to an arsenal of business generating tools including the industry’s most comprehensive internet marketing strategy, in-depth education to help keep skills current for today’s market, and marketing strength from one of the world’s most recognized real estate brands. Our new tagline – Connected to More – reflect the message that we connect our sales professionals to more resources and innovations.
On an office level, many of our brokers offer mentoring programs and business planning sessions to help sales professionals set and achieve their goals. CENTURY 21 offices offer an environment where real estate professionals, at whatever stage of their career, can thrive.
We feel that getting our system members involved in their communities, and in causes that move them, makes a big difference in employee satisfaction and retention, too. To that end, CENTURY 21 Canada has supported Easter Seals Canada for more than 35 years. In 2009 alone, our sales professionals raised more than $400,000 and provided special summer camp experiences to almost 200 Easter Seals children through the CENTURY 21 Kids to Camp program.
The other employers across North America who earned the distinction of 50 Most Engaged Workplaces this year include American Express, Bayer, Delta Hotels, Mercedes-Benz USA, Molson Coors Canada, Workopolis, and SIRIUS Satellite Radio Canada.
