TORONTO, January 18, 2020 – Echelon Wealth Partners Inc. (Echelon) is proud to announce that our organization has been named to the Great Place to Work® 2020 list of Best Workplaces™ for Inclusion, in Canada. The Best Workplaces™ lists are based on feedback from more than 300,000 employees across all industries in Canada.
David Cusson, CEO, considers this to be an exciting affirmation of the positive culture, inclusive hiring practices and progressive attitude pervading Echelon. “Our focus on trusted partnerships over the past year has been an open and transparent process that looks to foster, develop and implement inclusive and trust-based policies and processes across our organization,” says Cusson.
To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work Certified in the past year, and at least 90% of employees must agree they are treated fairly, regardless of personal characteristics (such as gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation). Great Place to Work® then ranks organizations in that pool based on employee responses to their Trust Index survey. This list is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®.
Echelon has been Great Place to Work® certified since 2016, and placed on the 2019 Great Place to Work® Best Workplaces™ for Financial Services in Canada list, and is proud of the internal work culture improvements that the process has been able to provide.
Trust in the workplace is tantamount to our corporate growth as Echelon believes being a trust-driven organization ensures trusting relationships with clients as well, which is proven to drive success. Inclusion, equality and diversity provide core areas where a company can and should develop policies that engender trust. This success would not be possible without the continued support and openness that Echelon employees have shown in the process.
