Aon Hewitt Best Employers Study Reveals Quebec Employees Are Among the Most Engaged in Canada Study indicates that quality discussions with managers are vital to employee engagement MONTREAL, March 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Quebec employees give their employer a higher rating for the quality ofinterpersonal relationships with their manager than their counterparts in the rest of Canada. This is one ofthe main reasons why their engagement score is one of the highest in the country, after Nova Scotia, according to the results of a study conducted by AonHewitt, the global human resources consulting and outsourcing business of Aon Corporation (NYSE: AON), in conjunction with the Queen's University School ofBusiness. The average engagement score for Quebec Best Employers is 79 percent, which is the same as the national average score for Best Employers. However, when survey responses from Quebec-based workers are compared to those from Canadian employees overall, the Quebec engagement score is 4 points higher thanthe national engagement score. "Employees from Quebec organizations appreciate the feedback they get from their managers, as well as recognition for their work and support from their bosses," says André Mercier, Partner at AonHewitt inMontreal. "They place more value in things like a sense of accomplishment, career opportunities andtrustin senior management." Best Employer organizations are determined by the employees themselves. Their answers to our study measure not only employee satisfaction and commitment (the extent to which they enjoy working fortheiremployer), but also their level of engagement (the extent to which they are willing to surpass themselves to improve the company's results). "The study results also show a higher level of satisfaction with regard to total compensation, including employee benefits, and work/life balance," adds Ms. Mercier. "When employees are highly engaged, thatenthusiasm and commitment is bound to have a positive impact on other employees in the organization." About the AonHewitt Best Employers Study This year marks the 14(th) anniversary of our national survey. This study helps organizations accurately assess engagement and identifies strategies to drive engagement higher with more information and insight.
