Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work in Canada 2021 Revealed: Google Wins #1

Coming off the heels of a tumultuous and life-changing year due to COVID-19, it’s no surprise that the #1 Best Place to Work winner in Canada is an organization that creates solutions and delivers results that shape the world for the better. Making the commitment to create products that help disseminate COVID-19 information to the world more effectively, Google has been voted the #1 Best Place to Work in 2021. 

Being named the winner of Glassdoor’s 6th annual Employees’ Choice Awards, honoring the Best Places to Work in 2021 is no small feat, as COVID-19 cannibalized the job market, causing millions of layoffs and this year’s list was the most competitive to date. However, Google beat out the competition by prioritizing their workforce and expanding their philanthropic efforts. With over a million company reviews on Glassdoor, placing on the Best Places to Work list is a major achievement. Congratulations to all of our winners!

In addition to recognizing the 25 companies on our 2021 Best Places to Work list for Canada (honoring employers with more than 1,000 employees), Glassdoor also compiled Best Places to Work lists for the U.S. Large Employers (more than 1,000 employees) and U.S. Small & Medium Companies (fewer than 1,000 employees), as well as across the UK, France and Germany. This year, only one employer appears on five lists: Salesforce (Canada, U.S. large, UK, France, Germany). 

The top ten Best Places to Work in 2021 are:

1. Google (4.5 rating)

2. Microsoft (4.5 rating)

3. TC Energy (4.4 rating) 

4. Apple (4.4 rating)

“COVID-19 is in the driver’s seat and every employer has been impacted. This year’s winning employers have proven, according to employees, that even during extraordinary times, they’ll rise to the challenge to support their people,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor chief executive officer. “A mission-driven culture, transparent leadership and career opportunities are always hallmarks of Best Places to Work winners. This year, we also see exceptional employers who have prioritized the health, safety and well-being of their employees. My congratulations go to all of this year’s outstanding Employees’ Choice Award winners.”

For over a decade, we’ve taken great pride in honoring companies that employees love working for — and we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
