There is a growing desire among employees worldwide to work for a socially responsible corporation. People want to work for the good guys and they want the work they do to be meaningful. Corporate Social Responsibility is quickly becoming a leading factor in employee attraction and retention. Aligning company operations with the values and concerns of employees and communities is quickly becoming one of the best ways to develop a well respected brand and employee engagement.

In addition to demand from employees for their employer to behave responsibly, a growing number of organizations are challenging companies to do the right thing. Corporate Knights Magazine, the magazine for “clean capitalism”, is shining its light on Canada’s Best 50 Corporate Citizens, its annual rating of companies dedicated to sustainability and industry best practices.

Making the list at #35 this year is TransCanada Corporation. This year marks the 7th year that TransCanada has appeared on the list since it began in 2002, and the company climbed from #44 last year.

“We understand the value of Corporate Social Responsibility and are committed to operating in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner,” says Marie Rajic, TransCanada’s manager of corporate social responsibility. “Participating in annual surveys like this one allows us to deepen our understanding of our performance as a corporate citizen. It gives us an opportunity to assess areas of strength and areas for improvement.”
