Trisura Guarantee a Top Small & Medium Employer for Fifth Year in a Row

Trisura Guarantee a Top Small & Medium Employer for Fifth Year in a Row

After months of anticipation, Mediacorp Canada Inc. has released their coveted list of Canada’s top small and medium employers. And, for the fifth consecutive year, Trisura Guarantee is thrilled to be one of them.

Canada's 2021 Top Small & Medium Employers logoWinners of the competition, now in its eighth year, are selected based on several factors, including physical workplace, work atmosphere and health, wellness and financial benefits. This year, however, the editors of the Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employer list also looked for how organizations approached the unique challenges of the pandemic. In an unforeseen landscape, it has been necessary for companies to be flexible, quick to respond with solutions and helpful with employees’ concerns.

Richard Yerema, the managing editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project, explained that this year’s leading companies were successful in creating the a smooth transition from working in the office to working remotely. “Not only were [the top companies] able to transition employees to working from home right out of the gate, but many already had policies in place that allowed for flexible work,” he said. “It was simply a matter of extending existing benefits, such as home office allowances and internet subsidies, to make the full transition.”

For the 2021 competition, it was important that the selected organizations offered the right benefits to help employees be as comfortable as possible with all the uncertainties we were all facing.

Over the past year, Trisura remained agile and was quick to respond to the urgency of the pandemic. The “virtual door” remained open for employees who had concerns or simply wanted to chat. Known for the social work culture, Trisura also hosted online team events, such as catch-ups and game days.

“Once again, we are truly honoured to receive the recognition as a Top Employer In Canada,” Trisura’s senior vice-president of Human Resources, Cindy Grant, says. “This past year, like everyone, we faced new challenges but worked diligently to support our team with appropriate resources to be successful. Our entire team from Halifax to Vancouver–makes the difference with their unwavering commitment to delivering on our philosophy of excellence, discipline and passion in everything we do.”

Trisura was also recognized for important initiatives and offerings, such as prioritizing and encouraging employee personal development through training and education, as well as a generous benefits program. Learn more about what makes Trisura Guarantee a 2021 Top Small & Medium Employer here.
