Employee recognition programs reward those who contribute to the achievement of Linamar's goals.

The "Power to Perform" Award annually honours employees who show initiative, embrace Linamar's entrepreneurial spirit and share best practices.  

The "Skunkworks" Program allows employees to submit ideas for a new product that Linamar could take to the marketplace.  The selected employee leaves their current role to lead the business development team that takes the new concept to the market.


Linamar is a truly global corporation and the composition of our workforce reflects the scope of that business operation.  Our Canadian operations are rich with diversity.  Linamar has a long history of embracing diversity in the workplace dating back to the early days of the company.  Our Chairman has always had a philosophy that reward and recognition are based on the employee's skills, abilities and accomplishments, nothing more.


In the first few years of the life of a Moso Bamboo tree the only growth seen is that of its underground root system.  Once a solid foundation is formed, the tree then grows rapidly at several feet per day.  This analogy is representative of our employee's career development.

Linamar believes the best future leaders of the company come from within the company.  With that concept in mind, Linamar has created an internal goal that 70% of all new positions or current openings must be filled from within its current employee base.  This means increased opportunities for professional advancement and promotion for those employees who choose to build their career at Linamar.
