Ontario Energy Board Named One of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers

For the second year in a row, the OEB is proud to be recognized as one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers, the benchmark for workplace best practices.

Being named one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers for 2024 is a testament to the OEB’s passionate and dedicated employees who are committed to unrelenting improvement as we carry out our work with humility and discipline.

“Being recognized as one of the GTA’s Top Employers two years running reflects the culture of accountability, transparency, and collaboration we have built and continue to nurture here at the OEB. Importantly, it underscores our core belief that diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is our competitive business advantage; a defining characteristic of our culture and an essential organizational strategy as we future proof our organization in preparation for tomorrow’s energy sector.”

– Susanna Zagar, Chief Executive Officer

DEI is our competitive business advantage and differentiator in this competition. At the OEB it is a a dynamic force, a deliberate corporate priority that is leadership driven, universally applied, employee led, morally correct and empirically proven. The positive operational benefits that it has helped enable include organizational and operational effectiveness, trust, and recruitment and retention. This is particularly true at a time when the energy sector is exhibiting rapid growth in the face of a generational transition; a time when, like the sector we are a part of, the OEB is competing for highly skilled talent. At the OEB, we choose to be an active accomplice when it comes to creating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace and we are thrilled that this award recognizes this effort.

Like the metropolitan area it represents, the Greater Toronto Top Employer competition attracts a diverse group of entrants. Minimum scores to secure a place on the GTA list routinely rank among the highest in the nation. Organizations are evaluated on their physical workspace; work atmosphere and social support; total compensation; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.

We hope our actions help others become accomplices in providing meaningful work environments for their people.

The OEB congratulates all the organizations being recognized as Greater Toronto Top Employers for 2024 and is honoured to be among them.
