Admiral Insurance - One of the 75 Best Places to Work in Canada
Our office has reconized for the second year in a row as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada. At the 2011 award ceremony we ranked number 11 as a best workplace in Canada and number 3 as a Great Place to work for Women. Our People Services Manager says the philosophy at Admiral is that happy staff make for happy customers and that “participating in a best workplace competition gives us a good understanding of what makes our employees happy.” Our ability to develop an award winning culture where our staff tell us they are happy to come to work in the four years we’ve been in Halifax is quite a significant achievement and this award is one that we are particularly proud of.”
The list of “Best Workplaces in Canada” is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The Great Place to Work Institute defines winning companies as those organizations where “employees trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with.” The competition process is based on two criteria: employee survey results and in-depth review of the organization’s culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
