Encore! Corby repeats as a Great Place to Work®

For the second year in a row, Corby named one of the "Best Workplaces in 
Canada" 
TORONTO, April 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Corby Distilleries is being recognized as one 
of this year's Best Workplaces in Canada. This list, and related stories, 
appears in a special national report published in today's edition of the Globe 
and Mail. 
Corby is committed to building a company of leaders, and to providing a work 
environment where employees are challenged, encouraged and given the support 
they need to do their best and to become their best. We know that 
organizations that can create sustainable engagement are the most successful 
financially, and in a highly competitive industry, our employees give us an 
edge that's hard to match. 
Over the course of 2012, we strengthened our focus on improving employee 
engagement. Our efforts were rewarded with a substantial improvement in all 
five trust-building dimensions measured by the survey - credibility, respect, 
fairness, pride, and camaraderie - with the highest score going to "pride". 
There was also a 10% increase in the number of employees who agreed that Corby 
is a Great Place to Work(®). 
"Naturally, we're delighted to be identified as one of the best workplaces in 
Canada, especially for two years running," says Patrick O'Driscoll, President 
and Chief Executive Officer of Corby Distilleries. "It is a tremendous 
achievement for our company that is also going to motivate us to do more. 
We're an organization that thrives on challenge, and once we've made a list 
our next goal is to make it to the top." 
This list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled by Great Place to 
Work(®) Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: 
two-thirds of the total score comes from a 58-statement survey completed by 
employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the 
remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the 
organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. 
This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee 
perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they 
provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a Great 
Place to Work(®): credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. 
This year's list received over 300 nominations, and over 57,000 employees 
participated in the 2013 "Best Workplaces in Canada" survey.
