Winnipeg, MB, November 13, 2020. . . Today, Canada Life was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. In its first full year as the new Canada Life, the company has been recognized for offering employees an industry-leading, exceptional work environment.

Canada Life was selected as a recipient based on a comprehensive application showcasing their successful new brand launch and continued focus on employees’ financial, physical and mental well-being.

The submission highlighted things like a competitive benefits and compensation offering, tuition support, ongoing training and development opportunities, community involvement, on-site fitness centres, healthy eating policy at company cafeterias and more.

The company was also recognized for supporting employees during the COVID-19 pandemic, with everything from an adapted benefits plan, including increased mental health coverage, to financial support setting up at-home workspaces and more.

“At Canada Life, we strive to uphold an environment where employees feel safe, supported and equipped to achieve their full potential,” says Cathy Weaver, Senior Vice-President, Human Resources, Canada. “Over the past several months, we’ve worked hard to be flexible and make their well-being a priority as we navigated through the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re pleased to be recognized for those efforts and will continue to do all we can to support our people moving forward.”

Canada’s Top 100 Employers are judged to a high standard in multiple categories against peers in their own industry. More and more, job applicants expect this high standard from their potential employers.

Winners are chosen based on eight areas of focus and criteria: physical workplace, work atmosphere and social, health, financial and family benefits, vacation and time off, employee communication, performance management, training and skills development and community involvement.
