Collingwood, ON: Leading multidisciplinary civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering firm Tatham Engineering (“Tatham”) is proud to announce its recent recognition as one of Southwestern Ontario’s Top Employers of 2024 by the editors of Mediacorp Canada Inc. (“Mediacorp”).
This accolade coincides with the firm’s 35th anniversary and underscores decades of unwavering commitment to employee growth and wellbeing, community engagement, and service excellence.

“When Charlie Tatham founded Tatham Engineering in 1988, it was important to him that as an employee-owned company, the professional development and happiness of staff remained a priority,” said Dan Hurley, President at Tatham Engineering. “Thirty-five years later, it has been our commitment to these beliefs that has helped us foster a culture where staff feel supported, heard, valued, and well-equipped for their work.”

This is the first year the Southwestern Ontario’s Top Employer Award is being presented. The award celebrates leading employers within one of the province’s most dynamic regions. Winners are selected by Mediacorp editors based on criteria which include:

“The communities we serve are home to vibrant landscapes that offer many exciting recreational opportunities. We take pride in being able to support staff as they establish their roots through our benefits package and company culture.”
