EFC 'Best Workplace' Designation at Great Place to Work (GPTW)
In 2019, Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) and Great Place to Work Institute® announced a strategic partnership to jointly engage the electrical industry in “moving the needle” on workplace excellence initiatives to support talent attraction and retention. This partnership provides members with access to tools and resources to help their organizations strengthen corporate culture, nurture a positive working environment, and ultimately, build greater places to work.
