Montreal, February 25, 2020–Héma-Québec is proud to welcome the announcement that Forbes has ranked it the top employer with more than 500 employees in Quebec’s health sector.

This performance is also reflected in Héma-Québec’s overall ranking among Canada’s Top Employers 2020. Héma-Québec has made major progress over its 2019 results and is now ranked 121st.

Forbes conducted an online survey of 8,000 full- and part-time employees working for Canadian companies and institutions with more than 500 employees. Participants were invited to comment on their likelihood to recommend their employer and to evaluate other employers in their respective industries. Only the top 300 Canadian companies were ranked among Canada’s top employers in 2020.

“The current effervescent labour market in Quebec means that all employers have to compete in imaginative ways to attract the best talent. Héma-Québec’s unique mission, focused on the gift of life, has always contributed to giving our organization a strong identity and has had an attractive effect on job seekers. Our organization has worked hard to distinguish itself as a quality employer.
