Sleeman Breweries named one of Waterloo Area’s Top Employers for 2024

Sleeman Breweries is proud to be named one of Waterloo Area’s Top Employers for 2024 by organizers of the Canada’s Top 100 competition.

“Sleeman Breweries has a long history of putting our employees first,” says Hiro Kitaoka, President and CEO of Sleeman Breweries. “Our benefits and work environment create a place where employees feel included and where they can reach their full potential.”

This is the fourth year Sleeman Breweries has received this important accolade. Many thanks to all our employees who help make Sleeman Breweries such a remarkable place to work.

This year, we were selected as a regional top employer for several reasons, including our:

  • parental leave top-up, providing 75% of salary for up to 38 weeks for primary caregivers and 100% of salary for up to six weeks for secondary caregivers.
  • charitable focus on food insecurity and the environment – we supported 150 initiatives in the past year! Our corporate match of employee donations was also noted.
  • financial incentives, including year-end bonuses for all, and beer as a taxable benefit.

The competition compares organizations in their respective fields to determine which employers offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.

“We invest a lot in our people because we know its important to them,” says Martin Durocher, Vice-President, Human Resources. “With mentorship programming, a strong performance and potential assessment process, and a committee focusing on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, we’re showing our employees that we value their contributions and that we’re committed to their success.”
