COBS Bread Ranks 48th on the Best Workplaces™ in Canada 2024 List


April 26, 2024 – Vancouver, BC COBS Bread is thrilled to announce its ranking as the 48th Best Workplace™ in Canada for 2024. This places COBS Bread in the top 50 among hundreds of Canadian companies evaluated for their commitment to employee well-being and fostering a positive work environment.

“My favourite thing about working for COBS Bread is the people,” Jess Peters, a baker from COBS St. Thomas, Ontario says. “Everyone is so great and supportive, plus I love that COBS donates all uneaten product at the end of the night. It feels good to be part of a company that gives back to others.” 

“This award demonstrates COBS Bread’s ability to creating an exceptional workplace for all our employees. Our commitment to fostering a positive and enjoyable work environment, offering career growth opportunities, and giving back to the community has been instrumental in receiving this honour,” says Linda Vo, Manager of Human Resources at COBS Bread.

The 2024 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list, compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute, is an employee-driven competition that represents multiple industries and sizes of organizations. The rankings are based on employee feedback, which is analyzed to determine the extent to which the employee experience is shared by the full workforce. The study measures the core of what creates great workplaces, including trust in management, connection with colleagues, and loyalty to the company. It offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective and an overall portrait of the workplace culture.

This year’s list captures the experience and sentiment of 330,000 employees, impacting over 600,000 Canadian employees.
