MONTREAL, Nov. 7, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada has been named one of "Canada's Top 100 Employers" for the fourth consecutive year in an annual employer survey by Mediacorp Canada Inc. The national competition for 2017 recognizes employers with exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies after a detailed review of company operations and Human Resources practices, including a comparison of others in their industry and region.

"Air Canada is proud to be ranked once more among the Top 100 Employers in Canada. That we have now received this recognition for four years running validates our success with one of our most important corporate priorities, culture change within our organization to make it more entrepreneurial with a heightened customer focus. Our reputation as one of the best places to work in Canada also enables us to attract and retain the best available talent, securing our place as a leading global carrier," said Arielle Meloul-Wechsler, Vice President Human Resources at Air Canada.

Entering its 18th year, the Canada's Top 100 Employers competition recognizes employers with exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies.
