Astellas Canada scores a double hat trick with yet another Great Place to Work® award

Astellas Pharma Canada is proud to announce that today the company was named to the 2019 List of Best Workplaces™ in Healthcare by the Great Place to Work® Institute, a first for the organization. This brings the company's total Great Place to Work awards for 2019 to six - a double hat trick!

"We're very honoured to continue to receive such positive recognition from Great Place to Work," said Steve Sabus, General Manager, Astellas Pharma Canada. "This Best Workplaces in Healthcare award is especially meaningful because it recognizes our commitment to making a difference and delivering value for patients, who ultimately motivate us to do our very best in our work each day."


The List of Best Workplaces in Healthcare is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work.

To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work® Certified™ in the past year and work primarily in the Healthcare Sector. Great Place to Work® determined the best based on employee responses to their Trust Index survey.

"Patient focus is a foundational element of our corporate culture and strategy," said Adele Zita, Director, Human Resources, Astellas Pharma Canada. "Being named to the List of Best Workplaces in Healthcare is a testament to our employees and their dedication and commitment to keeping patients central to everything we do."

In addition to this latest award, Astellas Canada has received five other awards for 2019 from Great Place to Work. The company was named for the fourth consecutive year to the List of Best Workplaces™ in Canada and the List of Best Workplaces™ for Women, and for the first time ever, to the Lists of Best Workplaces™ for Inclusion, for Giving Back, and for Mental Wellness.
