Intact Financial Corporation retains Platinum Best Employer title

Date November 8, 2018

We’re proud to announce that, for the fourth year in a row, Intact Financial Corporation has been named an Aon Best Employer in Canada at the platinum level.

This particular recognition is a point of pride for the company, as it is based on employee surveys and feedback results of our 2017 Employee Engagement Survey.

“We are honoured to receive this recognition for a fourth consecutive year as it is based primarily on employee feedback,” says Chief Executive Officer Charles Brindamour. “We have worked to create a culture driven by values and purpose, surround our people with inspiring teams, provide career and growth opportunities, foster an environment conducive to innovation and one that recognizes success. We’re committed to delivering on this every day and we look forward to working with our people to build on this foundation.”

Criteria in which Intact excels, according to our 2017 Employee Engagement Survey results, include learning and development and effective leadership – two major criteria that Aon Hewitt uses to score us against other organizations.

All of this is on top of our financial rewards package, our socially responsible Community Impact program and our Flexible Working Arrangements program.

We believe in our employees, just as our employees believe in us. We are committed to maintaining our position as a Best Employer and will continue to live our values by striving for excellence and fostering an environment conducive to personal growth and development, as well as recognizing the valuable contributions of each of our teammates.

Evaluation criteria

Using global standards developed for Aon’s Global Best Employer Program, Intact’s employee survey scores on engagement, leadership, performance culture, and employment brand were compared against other organizations in Aon Hewitt’s Canadian Survey Database and the opinions of Canadian employees. Organizations that scored in the top 25 per cent of the Canadian database are awarded the platinum level designation.
