Phoenix Contact and Rittal Systems Ltd. have each been recognized as one of this year’s 10 Best Workplaces in Canada for Manufacturing.

respect — employees feel respected by management; assesses employees’ perceptions of professional support, collaboration and involvement in decisions, and the level of care management shows for employees as people
