We Win Together as one of Canada’s Top Employers

Drum roll please... After thousands of award entries from across Canada were reviewed, Agrium was once again named one of Canada’s Top Employers for 2017.

“It is a tremendous honor to be recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for the eighth consecutive year,” says Mike Webb, Senior Vice President, Human Resources. “Our Cultivating Excellence culture truly sets Agrium apart as an employer of choice. This accomplishment wouldn’t be possible without our outstanding, creative and engaged employees working together to help feed the world. Thank you and congratulations.”

The winners were announced today in a special magazine published in The Globe and Mail, including a one-page profile on Agrium highlighting interviews with Mike and Vinesh Kohli, Plant Manager, Carseland Nitrogen Operations (see Page 19).

As Mike shared in the article, “A lot of it comes down to our work culture. When all is said and done, we are an agricultural company and our end user is the farmer. How can we help individual farmers do their job more efficiently, sustainably and at a lower cost? That’s what keeps us on our toes and keeps our business moving forward.”

The editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers evaluated Agrium using eight criteria:

  • Physical Workplace
  • Work Atmosphere & Social
  • Health, Financial & Family Benefits
  • Vacation & Time Off
  • Employee Communications
  • Performance Management
  • Training & Skills Development
  • Community Involvement

Agrium was also compared with peer organizations to see who offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. 

Winning together is part of our culture here at Agrium, because we are committed to helping our employees grow. If you’re interested in joining our team, we’re always looking for passionate, diverse people to help us feed the world.
