This growth has included an increase from 37 employees to over 240 today.

“This recognition belongs to every employee at Echelon that has helped make us a Great Place to Work® and contributed to creating a high-trust culture. Without trust, we would not have great relationships within the company, or with our clients. It is this trust that has propelled our growth, and I look forward to working hard to grow that trust further,” says David Cusson, CEO.

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 profitability. This success would not be possible without the continued support and openness that Echelon employees have shown in the process of becoming certified as a Great Place to Work® and being named to the Best Workplaces™ list for Financial Services and Insurance companies in Canada, 2019.
