ISL Engineering and Land Services (ISL) is pleased to be named number 2 among the Top 50 Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada. ISL is the top engineering consulting firm on the list. This reflects a jump of two ranking points from ISL's fourth place position in 2009.
"We are very proud to place second on the 2010 list," says Rod Peacock, ISL's President and CEO. "This is an achievement that reflects the commitment to quality, leadership and success that is demonstrated every day by our team of dedicated and engaged professionals."
Peacock, newly appointed as President and CEO January 1, 2010, recognizes ISL's commitment to client and staff success has been integrated into the corporate culture from the beginning.
"As the new President and CEO, I am grateful to Board Chairman and outgoing President and CEO, Gary Mack, and the whole management team at ISL, for their vision and dedication to developing such a positive work environment," states Peacock.
Becoming a Top Best Small and Medium Employer is a very detailed and competitive process. This national awards program recognizes top employers with between 50 and 399 employees. This study mirrors the renowned Best Employer in Canada initiative run by Aon Hewitt Associates, but it caters to smaller businesses.

The evaluation process also includes the assessment of organization practices and perspectives from the leadership team.This year, more than 200 companies across Canada registered to participate in the study.
The study, now in its sixth year, is published in the Globe and Mail and PROFIT magazine.
Study partners include Queen's School of Business, Queen's Centre for Business Venturing and Hewitt Associates.
