Bruce Power has been named one of Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures in the ‘Enterprise’ category by Waterstone Human Capital.

This prestigious honour recognizes Bruce Power’s corporate social responsibility, organizational performance, rewards and recognition, culture alignment and measurement and vision and leadership. This thorough examination of the company also included personal interviews with top executives and Duncan Hawthorne, President and CEO.

“I am pleased to accept this award on behalf of Bruce Power,” Hawthorne said. “Over the company’s 12 years, we have created a corporate culture that focuses on safety first, being a leader in the nuclear and our local communities, and recognizing employees for great performance while safely operating our eight units. To be honoured as one of the country’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures is proof we’re on the right path to becoming the world’s top energy company.”

Marty Parker, CEO of Waterstone and Chair of the Canada’s Top 10 program, said this year’s winners are truly an outstanding group of best-in-class organizations with cultures that have helped them enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage.

“Bruce Power has an excellent tie between culture and business direction and it understands the importance of its mission.  We are thrilled to include them as one of Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures,” Parker said.

This has been a decorated year for Bruce Power, as it has also been named one of the country’s Top Employers for Young People and received a Randstad Award as one of the country’s most attractive employers. Earlier this month, Bruce Power was named one of the most noteworthy nuclear plants in the world in the November edition of POWER Magazine.
