A-KAN Insurance is dedicated to creating a culture of respect, security, integrity and communication for its team. The reason for that is simple: “I want all of our employees to enjoy work as much as I do,” says president and CEO Kanwar Bola. “We are committed to treating all A-KAN employees respectfully, fairly, and equitably, fostering a climate of diversity and inclusiveness that values, celebrates, and leverages our differences.”
Based in Edmonton, A-KAN Insurance is led by Bola and his sister, Anj Kaur, who is the company’s director. With more than 20 years of combined insurance experience, A-KAN prides itself on ensuring its clients are covered in all aspects of their lives, including life, auto, home, medical and commercial insurance. The company offers its employees the same level of commitment, with a comprehensive total rewards package that includes market-driven pay and competitive benefits.
Bola says building an employee-focused culture, and involving employees in recruiting, has been important to both attract and retain top talent, even during a difficult 2020. “Our teams have shown incredible resiliency in the face of a global pandemic,” he says, “delivering critical client solutions and exceptional client service while navigating personal health and safety, and successfully adjusting to remote work environments and virtual collaboration techniques.”
