Supporting employees’ growth is a common thread among this year’s Top Insurance Workplaces. From access to online learning tools to weekly educational seminars and subsidized courses, education is an important pillar of these organizations. “If an employee is interested in taking a course that they feel can better their skills and the company, then the company will pay for it,” said one workplace.
The overwhelming majority of Top Insurance Workplaces offer education programs and opportunities above and beyond what’s required in the industry. In addition, almost all have strong official mentorship programs that offer regular meetings and training sessions with company leaders. “We work with each employee's educational and professional goals,” said one workplace, while another noted that “the training of our employees is at the centre of our strategy.”
