Vancouver, BC—For the eighth consecutive year, LGM Financial Services Inc. is being recognized as one of this year’s Best Workplaces in Canada. This list, and related stories, will appear in a special national report on Friday, April 10th, 2015 in The Globe and Mail.
LGM believes in creating a culture where employees can thrive and feel inspired to reach their full potential, both on and off the job. From a generous benefits package, continuous opportunities for learning and development and a strong encouragement to donate up to four work days per year giving back to the community, LGM’s employee engagement levels continues to grow—as does the organization.
“Employees at LGM are fundamental to our success and it’s important we create an environment that gets them excited to come to work,” says Adam Hill, founder and Chief Executive. “As our organization evolves, it’s important that we continue to attract, nurture and retain top talent – a key to ongoing growth as an industry leader. I am extremely proud of the company we’ve become and credit our accomplishments to the skills and dedication of our people.”
This list of “Best Workplaces in Canada” is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a 58-statement survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous 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.
This year’s list received over 300 nominations and over 60,000 employees participated in the 2015 “Best Workplaces in Canada” survey.
