Winnipeg, MB, November 12, 2021. . . Today, Canada Life was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. Despite the more challenging work environment due to the pandemic, this is the second consecutive year the large insurance, benefits and wealth provider has received this accolade.
“Everyday, Canada Life helps Canadian’s reach their full potential, and that includes our employees. At Canada Life, we strive to create an environment where employees feel they have a voice and are supported both personally and professionally,” says Colleen Bailey Moffitt, Senior Vice-President, Human Resources, Canada. “The world is changing quickly, but by sticking to our values, we continue to move forward, doing what’s right for our employees. We’re pleased to be recognized once again for those efforts and we’ll keep working hard to support our people moving forward.”
Canada Life was selected as a recipient based on a comprehensive application showcasing an industry-leading, exceptional work environment and their continued focus on employees’ financial, physical and mental well-being.
The submission highlighted how the move to one brand in 2020, allowed Canada Life employees to align under one common purpose and one culture. A culture focused on creating and maintaining an exceptional experience by inspiring communication, inclusive leadership, accountability, coaching and recognition.
The company was also recognized for supporting employees during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, accelerating plans to modernize and automate core people processes and providing anywhere-access to information, empowering leaders and employees.
“As we work together to shape new ways of working, we continue to transform the insights we’ve gained into concrete action,” says Bailey Moffitt. “With the dynamic teams we have at Canada Life, we’re purposefully building on our strengths and growing a high-performing, highly-engaged culture.”
