The 2022 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute. The competition process to be ranked on this list is employee-driven and represents multiple industries and sizes of organizations. Seventy-five percent of each organization's score is based on confidential employee feedback from the globally recognized Trust Index® Survey. The remaining twenty-five percent is based on the quality, quantity and effectiveness of the programs and policies which support their employees and corporate culture.
Baxter is proud to announce the company was also named on the 2022 list of Best Workplaces™ for Hybrid Work.
