OMA once again recognized as a top GTA employer

TORONTO, Dec. 9, 2022 — The Ontario Medical Association has been named one of the Greater Toronto Area’s Top Employers for the third year in a row, an annual honour that recognizes organizations with outstanding workplace practices.

This year’s winners were announced in a magazine published by The Globe and Mail. The OMA highlighted the following policies and initiatives to be considered:

  • Conducting monthly town halls with physician members to hear their feedback on practice management and education
  • Ongoing promotion of continued learning through internal and external education programs and maternity leave supports
  • Fulfilling new initiatives around diversity and inclusion, with 60 per cent of managers being women
  • Promoting the OMA’s extensive Prescription for Ontario: Doctors’ 5-Point Plan for Better Health Care, based on the largest consultation project in the organization’s history

“The North Star of all our employees is to advocate for physicians to better enable them to care for our families, our neighbours and our communities,” said OMA CEO Allan O’Dette.

Winners of the yearly competition are based on eight criteria: physical workspace; work atmosphere and social; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.

“I’ve got my project management certificate and I’m currently enrolled in a business innovation course at the University of Toronto,” said Jackie Noel, the OMA manager of practice management and education. “And when I had my kids, the OMA supported me to work and be a mom at the same time. Being a mom is a job in itself. We have great leadership here, they’re my mentors. They’ve helped me immensely in my career.” 

The Greater Toronto Area’s Top Employers competition is managed by Toronto-based publisher Mediacorp Canada Inc.
