Waterstone’s national program, which is now in its 14th year, recognizes corporate organizations and that exhibit empowering cultures. Entries are evaluated based on the following criteria: vision and leadership, recruitment and hiring, cultural alignment and measurement, retention, rewards and recognition, organizational performance and corporate social responsibility.
A panel comprised by executives from past winning organizations select ten organizations in various categories including growth, mid-market, enterprise and the broader public sector. The 40 awardees will be recognized in an event, which will be held March 1, 2018.
“At Mattamy, we’ve known for a long time that we have a special and unique culture that’s provided a competitive advantage,” said Mattamy Homes CEO and founder Peter Gilgan. “I’ve always envisioned building a company that wasn’t just about business and making money. I wanted to build – and continue building – a culture where we are always thinking about and caring for employees, customers, trade partners, the communities we create and do business in, the environment and the world around us.”
“It’s extremely gratifying that our culture, and its impact on our company’s long-term performance, has been recognized externally as well,” Gilgan said.
Mattamy Homes is the largest privately-owned homebuilder both in North America and Canada. Each year, the company builds communities for 7,000 families in Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, Phoenix, Tucson, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, Sarasota, Naples, Ottawa, Calgary and Edmonton.
