TORONTO – February 23, 2021 – Sklar Wilton & Associates is pleased to share that we have been named a top 50 company in Canada, among small businesses, by the Great Place to Work Institute. Each year, the Institute recognizes small, medium, and large companies around the world for creating and growing a positive workplace culture. We have been honoured to be named on the top 50 list each of the last four years, placing 1st, 11th, 7th, and 16th respectively. In mid-April, the GPTW Institute will reveal our final placing for 2021.
The Great Place to Work award recognizes our ongoing commitment to creating and growing a positive workplace culture. This includes building a high-trust workplace culture that helps employees have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with.
“The well-being of our associates is always our top priority and never more so than when the pandemic hit,” said Sarah Liverance, Partner, Sklar Wilton & Associates. “Like every other business, we’ve had to work extra hard since last March to understand and support each associate’s unique wellness needs and hardships. It’s rewarding to know that those efforts have been positively received and our team is better able to tackle their challenges. When our associates are supported, we know our clients are also supported.”
Always striving to go above and beyond in their quest for excellence, Sklar Wilton & Associates has won numerous other awards in recent years.
