Last night in Toronto, Achievers announced the winners of the Elite 8 at the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ Awards Gala. In a setting that was a perfect mix of glitz and industrial chic, the award recipients and representatives from almost every one of the 50 companies included on this year’s list enjoyed dinner, drinks and good times at the Steam Whistle Brewery in the heart of downtown Toronto. The event also provided attendees ample opportunity to network with peers from some of the most easily recognizable and highly successful companies in the world, and for entertainment, the world famous Second City comedy troupe.[caption id="attachment_6409" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Steam Whistle Brewery[/caption] [caption id="attachment_6407" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Second City Comedy Troupe[/caption] [caption id="attachment_6405" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Attendees at the Awards Gala[/caption] [caption id="attachment_6403" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces Awards Gala 2016[/caption]
