AET Group Inc. Ranks as One of Waterloo Area’s Top Employers 2022
WATERLOO, ONTARIO– AET Group Inc., has been named as one of Waterloo Area’s Top Employers for the 4th consecutive year. Currently in the 15th year of running, Waterloo Area’s Top Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers and recognizes employers in the Kitchener-Waterloo area that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.
Employers are evaluated using the same criteria used for the larger national Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition and include the following:
- Physical Workplace

- Health, Financial & Family Benefits
- Vacation & Time Off

AET moved employees to work from home arrangements early in the pandemic and introduced a new telecommuting policy ensuring that employees could take home office chairs, laptops, desktops, monitors and office supplies for their home offices– and offered to purchase additional equipment as needed on a case-by-case basis.
AET encourages ongoing employee development through in-house and online training and generous tuition subsidies for courses at outside institutions (to $2,500 annually) — and helps to develop younger talent with paid internships and mentoring programs.
