Accounting firm Ernst & Young is honoured to be named among the "Best Workplaces in Canada for 2008" for the third year in a row.

This list is compiled by the Great Place to Work Institute, which recognizes the top 50 workplaces from coast to coast.

Ernst & Young was chosen based on an external review of both work culture and human resources policies. The Institute also puts emphasis on survey results from more than 400 randomly-selected partners and staff.

Highlights of the survey results include:

- 91% said they are proud to tell others they work at the firm

- 83% said they feel good about the ways the firm contributes to the community

- 82% said they can be themselves at work

- 84% said Ernst & Young is a great place to work

"This award is a great testament to the culture of teaming, coaching and inclusiveness we have built," says Karen Wensley, Canada's People Team Leader for Ernst & Young.

"We are really proud to hear that our people feel they can thrive and achieve their potential in our work environment."

This ranking reinforces Ernst & Young's PeopleFirst philosophy. By focusing on being the best place for our people to achieve their career and personal goals, we can make a difference for our people, our clients and our communities.

This is part of a recent list of accolades for Ernst & Young in Canada. The firm has also received:

- Best Employers for New Canadians for 2008

- Best Employers for Diversity, 2008

- Calgary's Best Places to Work For 2007

- GTA's Top 50 Employers 2008

- Alberta's Best Workplaces for Working Parents, 2008

- Alberta's Best Workplaces for Millenials, 2008


The Great Place to Work Institute also produces Fortune magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For" list, on which our US firm has ranked for the past 10 years.
