A tad ironic given all the recent labour troubles. http://www.newswire.ca/en/releases/archive/September2011/30/c8389.html MONTREAL, Sept. 30, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada has been ranked among the top five most attractive companies to work for in Canada according to a survey of 7,000 Canadian jobseekers and workers conducted by Randstad Canada and ICMA International. "It is a great honour for Air Canada, and a reflection of our commitment to excellence in a global market, to be recognized as one of the most attractive companies to work for in Canada," said Kevin Howlett, Senior Vice President, Employee Relations who accepted Air Canada's award at the Randstad Award ceremony held in Toronto last night. "Although in today's challenging economic climate jobs are at a premium, the fact remains that those with talent and ambition are still able to choose their careers and where they wish to pursue them. That Randstad has identified Air Canada as such a place, where people want to work and find professional fulfillment, is really a tremendous compliment to our organization." Each year, Air Canada receives on average 70 applications for each position it seeks to fill. Air Canada employs 26,000 people across Canada and world wide.
