The PEER Group Inc. is pleased to announce that we have been named on the 2019 list of Best Workplaces™ for Women. We received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®.

The list of Best Workplaces for Women is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work. To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year, have a minimum of 15 female employees, and at least 90% of employees agree that their workplace is safe and people are treated fairly regardless of their gender. Great Place to Work determined the best based the overall Trust Index score from female respondents, as well as their programs and practices that promote the fair treatment and advancement of women.

“Today, we celebrate our entire team. We have built a company culture that empowers all of our employees and one in which all team members contribute to our success,” says Heidi Marr, director of marketing communications at PEER Group.

Great Place to Work® will release a joint publication with the WE EMPOWER programme of the UN Women, European Union and the International Labour Organization, on March 27, 2019 in Toronto. In line with the UN Women’s theme for the recent International Women’s Day – Think equal, build smart, innovate for change – this publication considers ways in which the private sector can advance gender equality and women’s empowerment, while providing tangible examples of empowerment in the workplace that support and foster innovation by all.
