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 Thursday April 17th, 2014 in The Globe and Mail.
LGM believes a fundamental part of successful business operations is creating a safe, comfortable and dynamic environment for its people. They demonstrate this by providing a wide range of valuable employee benefits and by creating an appealing place to work. These actions positively impact bottom line results and allow the company to attract and retain world class talent.
“Our employees are excited to come to work”, says Adam Hill, founder and Chief Executive at LGM. “Every day we strive to provide top quality service and create innovative products. We know that without employees that are fully invested in what they do, and fuelled by encouragement to do better, we couldn’t be successful. I’m tremendously proud that our organization has achieved this recognition for the seventh consecutive year, it has become part of our company culture.”
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 2014 “Best Workplaces in Canada” survey.
