Takeda Canada Inc. certified by Top Employers Institute for its exceptional employee offerings

February 1, 2018

OAKVILLE, Ontario – February 1, 2018 – Takeda Canada Inc. is proud to announce that it has been officially certified by the Top Employers Institute for its exceptional employee offerings.


The Top Employers Institute recognises leading employers around the world: those that provide excellent employee conditions, nurture and develop talent throughout all levels of the organization, and which strive to continuously optimise employment practices. Takeda Canada Inc. has been awarded the exclusive Top Employers certification for Canada and for North America for 2018.


“Takeda Canada is very proud to have its human resources policies and employee programs recognized with the achievement of the Top Employers certification,” said Kieran Leahy, Interim General Manager of Takeda Canada. “This certification is a vital part of our objective of creating a high-performing organization as we emerge into an agile specialty care provider.”


The Top Employers Institute globally certifies excellence in the conditions that employers create for their people. Crucial to the Top Employers process is that participating companies must complete a stringent research process and meet the required high standard to achieve the certification. To further reinforce the validity of the process, all results were independently audited, meaning this research has verified the outstanding employee conditions at Takeda Canada and earned the company a coveted spot among a select group of certified Top Employers.


“Takeda Canada is focussed on providing a first-class experience for all its employees right from the moment they start working with the company. We also take the time to invest in our employees’ futures by providing opportunities for career advancement and leadership,” said Meera Sethi, acting Head of Human Resources  at Takeda Canada. “Having our programs and processes recognized by this Top Employers certification demonstrates that our efforts have been well-placed and successful, and that we have a solid foundation to continue to build from and strengthen in the future.”


The Top Employers Institute assessed Takeda Canada’s employee offerings on the following criteria: talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning and development, performance management, leadership development, career and succession management, compensation and benefits, and culture.
