Egg Farmers of Canada (EFC) was recently named one of the National Capital Region’s Top Employers for the ninth consecutive year. This award recognizes employers in the Ottawa-Gatineau region and their exceptional workplaces.

Wellness activities, in-house training and tools that help staff maintain strong connections and collaborate across disciplines are some of the reasons why the organization was recognized as a top employer.

A custom method for onboarding new staff, personalized professional development opportunities and its approach to leadership development are other reasons why EFC was honoured.

Meanwhile, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization embraced a remote work model, launching virtual lunch and learn sessions and a curated resource centre to further support employees.

“Supporting our team is always our first priority,” says EFC CEO Tim Lambert. “With that, our dedicated team is able to continue their essential role of overseeing Canada’s egg supply. I am particularly proud of how our team has adapted and responded.”

Based in Ottawa, EFC’s close to 60 person team oversees national programs and standards, contributes to managing educational programs for farmers and manages innovative research and development programs.

The team also plays a key role in promoting egg consumption in Canada and championing sustainable agriculture, helping put egg farming at the forefront of this important movement.

This latest recognition is among a series of honours that reaffirm EFC’s commitment to its people.

Late last year, Waterstone Human Capital named EFC one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures for the third time, with the organization holding the award since 2014.

The organization has also received recognition as an employer that supports and nurtures young people at the start of their careers.
