Six insurance companies made it to the most recent list of “Canada’s Top Employers for Young People”. The annual editorial competition was organized by the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project.
According to Canada’s Top 100 Employers, the Top Employers for Young People designation “recognizes the employers that offer the nation’s best workplaces and programs for young people just starting their careers.” The companies that made the list “are Canada’s leaders in attracting and retaining younger employees to their organizations,” a statement on the competition’s official website explained.
Employers on the list were recognized for their progressive initiatives for younger workers. Such initiatives include education tuition subsidies, job rotation opportunities, mentorship, paid internships, as well as in-house training and development programs for career advancement.
Canada’s Top 100 Employers senior editor Kristina Leung told The Globe and Mail that recruitment initiatives for diverse or disadvantaged youth remains a primary focus for many of the companies.
The six insurers that made the list, as well as their notable initiatives, are:
Ecclesiastical Insurance Office PLC, Toronto. Insurance; 68 employees. Manages a Business Intern Program, a three-year rotational program for recent university graduates pursuing the Chartered Insurance Professional designation.
