Those who think working in pest control isn’t the ‘bees' knees’ should think again! Abell Pest Control Inc. credited by Great Place to Work
TORONTO, April 17, 2023 – Abell Pest Control is proud to announce it’s been recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada 2023™ by Great Place to Work, a global research and consulting firm. This honour comes shortly after its distinction as a Best Workplace™ for Women, awarded on International Women’s Day.
Based on feedback from Abell’s own employees, this organization has deemed Abell Pest Control as one of the greatest places to work in the country.
“Pest control isn’t always glamorous, but there is a world of opportunity available to those who want to make a difference and improve the lives of others,” said Sara Cromwell, Director of People Excellence at Abell Pest Control.
“We are an employee-centric company that always puts our staff first. At the end of the day, what drives us is not just the satisfaction of creating a great work environment, but also the knowledge that we're making a positive impact on the lives of our employees.”
The honour comes after the company received 425 survey responses from employees rating their work experience. The survey, which Abell’s employees filled out voluntarily, collected answers with open-ended questions regarding work-life balance, training methods, management, compensation, and more. Some comments from our staff include:
“[Abell] offers a very flexible schedule, the ability to make great money, and offers a great work-life balance.”
“A great management team that always has your back. Whenever there is a difficult situation with a client that I'm not able to handle on my own, I know I can rely on my management team to handle the situation fairly and conscientiously. I have never felt more supported and included than I do at Abell.”
“The level of care and compassion in my authorities makes this a wonderful place to work with very minimal stress. Lots of support and guidance around here.”
“The compensation and benefits structure here is unparalleled. It's an awesome place to work!"
With a five percent unemployment rate in the country now, many Canadians need to explore opportunities in industries they may not have considered. It’s clear to see Abell can be the answer to those looking for work all over Canada with their locations in every major Metropolitan area.
