OMA recognized as a top GTA employer for fourth year in a row

TORONTO, Dec. 5, 2023 — The Ontario Medical Association has been named one of the Greater Toronto Area’s Top Employers for the fourth 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 initiatives in its application:

  • The OMA’s core purpose of making a positive impact on health care by supporting doctors
  • The association’s values of being respectful, responsive, innovative, bold and transparent
  • Prioritizing encouraging equity, diversity and inclusion across the workforce
  • Offering employees a wide range of learning and career growth opportunities

“What draws us all here is the opportunity to make a difference,” said Sandy Zidaric, the OMA’s executive vice-president of people and culture. “We take great pride in supporting our physicians and the work they do across the health-care system.”

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. 

“All of us use and benefit from our health-care system,” said Nikhil Agarwal, the OMA‘s senior director for business and market development. “If we can make the lives of doctors better, they can make the lives of everyone else better.”   

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