Life at Admiral

gptw headerFollowing successes from our Spanish and UK counterparts, Admiral Halifax is pleased to announce a placement on the coveted 2017 Best Workplaces in Canada list.

Admiral secured 46th place on the list of Best Large and Multinational Workplaces, released in April.

In earning a spot on the Best Workplaces list, Admiral joins such reputable companies as Microsoft Canada Inc., BMW Canada Inc., and AOL Canada. 

5 Year StaffHalifax employees that started with Admiral in the first half of 2012 were recently recognized with an onsite reception to mark their fifth anniversary with the company.

Over a dozen employees received an hour out of their workday to enjoy a light meal and collect $100 in 'thank you' Sobeys gift cards, along with the iconic five year crystal glass award that every celebrating employee receives.

BfKS1Halifax staff were busy in March, rolling up our sleeves to raise money in support of charitable organizations in the community. On top of participating in a fundraiser for the Children’s Wish Foundation, Admiral was also involved in Bowl for Kids Sake – a fundraiser to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada.

As the designated Charity Champion for the month of March, two teams of six bowlers worked hard to raise a combined $1,500 through the sale of raffle tickets, 50/50 draws and other inner-office contesting. The money raised will go towards assisting Big Brothers Big Sisters with future programming and services.

CWF Fundraiser

Admiral Halifax’s participation in a fundraiser for the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada was once again an overwhelming success, as our office committed to a purchase of 161 dozen Krispy Kreme donuts to benefit the Foundation's 2017 'One Wish in One Day' annual fundraiser.

That’s a whopping 1932 donuts purchased - which eclipses Admiral's total of 1236 donuts bought in 2016.

Our continued commitment to this charitable cause even landed us some air time on CTV Morning Live where Admiral’s purchase was recognized as being one of the largest of any corporate entity in the Halifax region

December, 2016 marked the end of an era at Admiral Halifax.

Vice President, Alex MacDonald, the man who opened Admiral’s first satellite office in Halifax and the site’s fearless leader since 2007, said goodbye as he began the transition into much deserved retirement life.

For close to a decade, Alex was instrumental in leading the Halifax operation and steering it in a direction that mirrored the cultural uniqueness of the UK operations. During Alex’s tenure, the Canadian office grew from a dozen employees to over 400.

ACTE 2017For the third consecutive year, Admiral Halifax has been recognised as one of the Top Employers in Atlantic Canada.

The recently released list has Admiral listed alongside reputable institutions in both the finance and education sectors, among others.

Admiral was the only contact centre on the list.

Head of People Services Nick Beynon said, "For Admiral to make this list three years running, that’s really significant. It certainly bolsters our efforts to continue to bring in top level talent here in Halifax."

feed ns2016 was a banner year for Admiral Halifax and its commitment to supporting community groups, teams and not-for-profit organizations within Halifax and the surrounding region.

Last year, the company earmarked over $25,000 towards charitable donations, not-for-profit sponsorships and community group support.

As an award-winning employer of choice, Admiral holds the belief that corporate social responsibility should be at the forefront of every organization’s values - a philosophy that extends far beyond basic cheque writing.

Admiral recently attended the Contact Centre Nova Scotia 2016 annual awards ceremony at the Westin Hotel in downtown Halifax and handed out hardware to six employees who made a positive impact on our business in 2016.

About a dozen high-energy employees dedicated a Saturday afternoon by representing Admiral as we sponsored and participated in the 2016 Halifax LGBTQ Pride Parade.

With faces painted, balloon backpacks and plenty of warm smiles, our staff marched along the parade route in downtown Halifax engaging with the public and acting as company ambassadors for the afternoon.

The World Trade and Convention Centre in downtown Halifax was transformed into a ritzy Parisian street corner as Admiral Halifax recognized its top performers for 2015 at the company's annual Spring Awards Gala.

With A Night in Paris as the theme, the evening was highlighted by laughter and plenty of applause as hosts David Sanderson and Chloe Speirs kept the crowd smiling and Admiral handed out awards to 16 of its staff members - those who gave exemplary service and had a positive impact on our business in the 2015 fiscal year.
