McMillan LLP is among the best national organizations for young people to work for after being named one of the winners of the 2017 Canada's Top Employers for Young People.

Now in its 15th consecutive year, Canada's Top Employers for Young People is an editorial competition that recognizes the employers that offer the nation's best workplaces and programs for young people at the beginning of their careers. The winning employers lead the nation in attracting and retaining younger employees to their organizations.

"Making your organization a good place for young people to start their careers is about more than simply appearing trendy or hip," says Kristina Leung, Senior Editor of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp Canada Inc., which publishes the competition. "It shows all your employees and customers that you are open to change. Employers that understand their youngest workers have the most success in adapting their business models to respond to changing technologies and consumer preferences."

McMillan LLP, National Director of Human Resources, Nisha Rider, said being selected as one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People is a proud moment for the firm.

"We take great pride in offering our law students, interns and new graduates meaningful career development experiences, programs and the tools necessary to grow, develop and excel in their careers," she said. "We are honoured to have received this designation in recognition of our efforts to develop future lawyers and business professionals."

McMillan's recruitment strategy focuses on hiring the best talent and investing in that talent for long term success.

"Young talent is a powerful driver for re-shaping the way we do things through innovation and collaboration," said McMillan LLP, National Director of Professional Development, Marlene Kane. "We're excited about the possibilities."

The official reception and announcement for all national winners will take place on Jan.10 at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto from noon to 1:00pm.
