Graham is 16th on Aon Hewitt's list of 50 Best Employers in Canada

Calgary - For the second year, Graham Group Ltd. has been named one of the 50 Best Employers in Canada, ranking 16th on the Aon Hewitt list. Up 17 places from last year, Graham is very proud of this outstanding recognition.

"It's an exceptional achievement," says Bill Flaig, President and CEO. "We often say that Graham is its people. The positive attitudes indicated by these results could only have been generated and sustained by working alongside a first-rate group of people who truly care about their work and their company."

Graham Group Ltd. and its employees are thrilled to receive such prestigious results and attribute this success to a work environment that promotes high employee engagement. Based on Aon Hewitt's study, employees are engaged when they "say, stay and strive": they speak positively about the organization to others, are committed to remaining with their current employer, and are motivated by their organizations' leaders, managers, culture and values to go "above and beyond" to contribute to business success.

"Each and every employee at Graham should feel proud of this achievement, whether you recently made the decision to join the Graham family or you are a long-serving member - and there are many of you," declares Mr. Flaig. "Throughout our 84-year history, we have continued to evolve to make the Graham experience the best experience. It's empowered employees. We support a culture in which we not only build great things, we do great things together."

Aon Hewitt's study of the 50 Best Employers in Canada for 2011 will appear in the November 2010 issue of Maclean's magazine. Survey responses from more than 134,000 Canadian employees and 251 organizations determined this year's results.
