Press Release - Collective P.O.S. Named as one of the Best Employers in the Greater Toronto Area

Canada's Leading Merchant Services Provider Earns Prestigious Ranking in Aon Hewitt / Queen’s School of Business 2012 Research Study

Toronto, ON  - November 24, 2011

Collective Point of Sale Solutions has been named to the 2012 Aon Hewitt / Queen’s School of Business list of the Best Employers in the Greater Toronto Area. Published today in the Toronto Star, this award recognizes companies with high employee engagement.

"We are immensely proud of our employees, our management team and our company as a whole," said Michael Back, CEO and President of Collective P.O.S. “We work exceptionally hard at creating a corporate culture that engages employees, delivers results and is a fun place to come to work every day.”

Collective P.O.S. supports employee engagement through promoting exceptional structures for its workers and encourages a hands-on interaction and a dynamic working environment at every level of the organization.

“The real litmus test of whether or not an organization is a Best Employer lies with the employees themselves," said Neil Crawford, Aon Hewitt’s study leader. "This study goes beyond satisfaction (how much I like things here) and commitment (how much I want to be here) to measure engagement (how much I want to and actually contribute to improving our business results). Without a focus on engagement, it’s difficult for organizations to achieve sustainable success.”

Lidia Cords, Manager of Human Resources for Collective P.O.S. said, “We are always experimenting with new ideas and looking for ways to take things to the next level. Earning a spot on the 2012 list of the Best Employers in the GTA is a tremendous achievement that we all take great pride in.”
