The PEER Group Inc. – the largest supplier of factory automation software to the semiconductor and related industries – is pleased to announce that Great Place to Work® has named us one of the Best Workplaces in Canada for the seventh consecutive year. We are thrilled to sit at #3 on the 2018 list of our nation’s best medium-sized companies.

“Our team is a group of bright, caring, thoughtful and heroic people and we are delighted that Great Place to Work continues to recognize our culture year after year,” says Janice Retterath, Director of HR and Administration at PEER Group.

“I always say that as a group, we are focused on creating customer success while working in a supportive atmosphere filled with challenges, fun, and food.”

The 2019 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results and the remaining one-third comes from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to five trustbuilding dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

This year’s list received over 400 registrations and over 80,000 employees participated in the 2019 “Best Workplaces™ in Canada” survey, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees. This list and related stories appeared in a Special National Report on Friday April 26, 2019 in The Globe and Mail.

In addition to our latest award and ongoing Certification, Great Place to Work has named PEER Group a Best Workplace for Technology, Millennials, Inclusion, Women, and Giving Back. Visit
