TORONTO – September 14, 2017 – Sklar Wilton & Associates, a leading Canadian marketing and research consultancy, was named a top 7 finalist for the Venngo Award of Excellence for Financial, Physical, & Mental Wellness by the Canadian HR Awards. This award recognizes Sklar Wilton & Associates’ ongoing commitment to creating and growing a positive workplace culture.
The HR Awards recognize organizations that excel in the provision of overall employee well-being which includes the financial, physical, and mental wellness of its employees while showing clear evidence of a positive impact on workforce, including reductions in absence levels, and / or improvements in staff engagement and performance. Nominations for the award were opened to more than 30,000 online news readers of Human Resources Director Canada and HRD magazine subscribers across Canada. Only seven companies across Canada were selected as finalists.
“We were surprised and excited to hear we were a finalist for this award. Creating a workplace that supports good physical and mental health is important to us, and it’s great to hear that other people also value that,” said Sarah Liverance, Partner at Sklar Wilton & Associates. “We’ve worked hard to create support systems and whole-person development programs that focus on small daily activities, such as our daily fitness challenge, as well as long-term programs. We want our employees to be happy and healthy employees not only for themselves and their families but also because it creates better outcomes for our clients.”
“We truly value our associates and that means ensuring we give them the resources they need to be productive and happy when they come to work every day,” said Luke Sklar, Partner at Sklar Wilton & Associates. “We are really happy that our commitment to the well-being of our team has been recognized.”
Demonstrating their commitment to going above and beyond, and relentlessly striving for excellence, this award comes on the heel of other major awards received by Sklar Wilton and its associates earlier this year. SW&A was named the first place winner of Best Workplaces in Canada for Small Companies by the Great Place To Work® Institute and the #1 Employee Recommended Workplace for small privately held companies in Canada by the Globe and Mail and Morneau Shepell.
