TRISURA RECOGNIZED AS TOP SMALL AND MEDIUM EMPLOYER IN CANADA

Trisura Guarantee Insurance Company has been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers by Mediacorp Canada Inc. This award recognizes exceptional workplaces across the nation in the Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) category, particularly those with forward-thinking people programs.

The 2017 winner’s list was revealed today and is featured on newsstands in an exclusive magazine published by The Globe and Mail.

This year is the competition’s fifth edition, seeking to highlight SMEs that perform excellently based on a multi-tiered evaluation. The evaluation is based on eight criteria, the same that’s used for large companies featured in the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. The eligibility of a company is determined based on the definition of a SME by Statistics Canada: a private-sector company with under 500 employees worldwide.

“We are honoured to receive recognition as a top employer in Canada,” says Cindy Grant, Vice President of Human Resources at Trisura. “Our simple underlying principles of ‘team’, ‘sense of urgency’ and ‘a step above’ create a truly unique culture where employees don’t just come together to serve customers, they want to come together to create exceptional customer experiences.”

This is Trisura’s first year being recognized as one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers. The full winner’s list was announced in a special magazine inside The Globe and Mail this morning.

NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT: SIDE A DIC

Trisura Guarantee Insurance Company is pleased to announce the introduction of a new insurance product to its line of Specialty Insurance Solutions. A Side A DIC Policy is used to further protect individual Directors and Officers from claims arising out of the execution of their roles in the board room. The policy broadens the scope of coverage available to Directors and Officers by offering coverage for non-indemnified loss when the primary D&O Insurance program either excludes coverage for a claim or the primary insurance carriers are unable to provide coverage due to insolvency.

Trisura’s Side A DIC policy offers market leading broad coverage with only one exclusion, that still provides defense costs until a final adjudication on the action has been reached. This allows corporations of any nature to be able to recruit and retain the best available Board members by demonstrating their commitment to indemnify and protect them in the case of litigation.

“Our brokers are always telling us that they enjoy doing business with the team at Trisura and want to find more opportunities to work with the team through the launching of new products, and this is another response to that request.” said Richard Grant, Senior Vice-President of Specialty Insurance Solutions. He added, “We see a variety of companies consider and purchase this coverage, it is no longer a policy that is only considered by publicly traded companies. We have also seen private companies and large non-profit organization add this to their insurance program as a way to transfer risk and attract elite Board members to help guide their organizations.”
