Bell Named One of the Leading Employers in Montréal

by Istvan Fekete on February 6, 2014

Citing various reasons, Mediacorp has named Bell one of Montréal’s Top Employers for 2014 in the annual awards organized by editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers.

“Bell is very pleased to again be recognized as an employer that offers a diverse mix of career opportunities and a supportive workplace for team members,” said Bernard le Duc, Executive Vice President, Corporate Services for Bell and BCE. “Receiving a Top Employer award is much-appreciated recognition of the Bell team’s contributions here in Montréal and across the country.”

Canada’s No. 3 wireless carrier was awarded the title due to the company’s heavy investment in training and professional development in Québec’s largest city, and its leadership in workspace mental health via Bell’s Let’s Talk initiative.

While the company did not make Canada’s national Top 100 Employers’ list published last October, Mediacorp’s editors recognized Bell’s following efforts in Montréal:
– comprehensive professional development; a broad range of in-house and online training programs; apprenticeship opportunities; and tuition subsidies for job-related courses;
– Bell’s intensive participation in the community via (employee) volunteer programs, and investment in Montréal community organizations;
– investment in providing employee lounges and cafeterias with healthy menus, and state-of-the-art fitness facilities with subsidized membership for head-office employees.

Bell is also said to be working to reflect its employees’ values and interests within their local communities, as it pledges $25 million in sponsorship each year for cultural events such as Les FancoFolies and Montréal en lumiére, and also invests in mental health care and research, providing financial backup for Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Montréal, the Rivière-des-prairies Hospital, the Jewish General Hospital Foundation and Montréal’s Douglas-Bell Brain Bank.
