PEER Group named to national list of Best Workplaces for Inclusion

Kitchener, Ontario - January 16, 2018

GPTW 2018 Inclusion AwardWe are pleased to announce that PEER Group has been named to the 2018 list of Best Workplaces for Inclusion. We received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work® Canada.

The list of the 25 Best Workplaces for Inclusion is based on direct feedback from our employees. For eligibility, companies must be certified as a Great Place to Work™ 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). 

GPTW determined the BEST based on employee responses to inclusion-related Trust Index statements and our workplace programs and practices that support inclusion.

This award is in addition to others we have received from Great Place to Work Canada over the years, including: 

  • One of the 25 Best Workplaces in Technology in Canada for 2017
  • Certification as a great workplace for 2016-2018
  • One of the Best Medium-sized Workplaces in Canada for the past five years
