January 21, 2014

MD Physician Services Inc. announces its recognition for the second consecutive year as one of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ in Canada. This annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation in developing highly engaged employees.

"We believe an exceptional client experience can only happen when there is a parallel experience for the employees who serve them," said Brian Peters, President and Chief Executive Officer of MD Physician Services. "The recognition MD has received from Achievers illustrates the high level of engagement that can flourish when genuine investments in leadership, learning and culture are aligned with the company's strategy and sense of purpose."

The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ Awards panel of judges evaluated each applicant based on the Eight Elements of Employee Engagement™: Communication, Leadership, Culture, Rewards & Recognition, Professional & Personal Growth, Accountability & Performance, Vision & Values and Corporate Social Responsibility.

The panel of 14 judges included various academics and thought leaders on employee engagement, and included representation from organizations such as the Society for Human Resource Management, Human Resources Professionals Association, and Human Capital Institute and Northern California HR Association.

"The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ understand that employee engagement is not just a buzz word, but that engaged employees provide businesses with a unique competitive advantage. Companies that focus on employee success have better engagement and alignment with business objectives and company values," said Achievers CEO, Patrick D. Quirk. "These companies serve as role models for other businesses to engage their own employees and build success."

MD will be honoured alongside other recipients of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ Award at the awards gala on March 6, 2014 at the Hilton in Toronto.
