TORONTO – April 15, 2021 – We are thrilled to announce that Sklar Wilton & Associates has been named one of the top 50 Best Workplaces in Canada for the 5th consecutive year by the Great Place to Work Institute coming in at #38. The Institute recognizes small, medium, and large companies around the world for creating and growing a positive workplace culture. This achievement follows previous placements over the last four years of 1st, 11th, 7th, and 16th respectively.
The Great Place to Work award recognizes a company’s ongoing commitment to creating and growing a positive workplace culture. This includes building a high trust, inclusive environment where employees can take pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with.
“We are honoured to be acknowledged for the 5th consecutive year as one of the best workplaces in Canada,” said Sarah Liverance, Partner, Sklar Wilton & Associates. “This year in particular, the recognition holds even more meaning as we’ve worked hard as a team to navigate this new normal and ensure the physical and mental health of our employees remained top priority. Like so many other businesses, we had to listen to our associates to understand what they needed in order to feel well and safe so that they could continue to support our clients with the same high level of service they’ve become accustomed to.”
“The mental wellbeing of our associates has always been important to us,” said Jennifer Marley, Partner, Sklar Wilton & Associates. “We knew our associates would have different needs and require extra support this year, particularly with the move to remote working. We took extra care to ensure we respected personal boundaries, built in casual and ‘spontaneous’ fun, and excelled in our virtual communication skills.”
Striving for excellence is on-going for the Sklar Wilton & Associates team. This particular achievement comes after being named on eleven Best Workplaces lists in the last four years: Best Workplace™ for Giving Back, Best Workplace™ for Mental Wellness, Best Workplace™ for Inclusion, Best Workplace™ Managed by Women, Best Workplace™ for Women, Best Workplace™ for Celebrating Success, and Best Workplace™ for Professional Services.
SW&A was also named the number one Employee Recommended Workplace among privately held small businesses in Canada by the Globe and Mail and Morneau Shepell in 2017 and 2019.
