PEER Group named a 2019 Best Workplace™ for Mental Wellness

Kitchener, Ontario – May 14, 2019

GPTW Mental WellnessThe PEER Group Inc. is pleased to announce that our company has been named to the 2019 List of Best Workplaces™ for Mental Wellness. PEER Group received this honour after Great Place to Work® reviewed direct feedback from employees across hundreds of organizations.

“Great Place to Work was especially interested in our efforts to enhance teamwork and communication. We rolled out companywide DiSC Profile training, hoping to gain a deeper appreciation for how each of us responds to conflict, how we approach problem-solving differently, what motivates us, and what causes us stress,” says Janice Retterath, Director of HR and Administration at PEER Group.

“The training has had a positive impact on our overall mental wellness, by helping us communicate from a place of understanding, trust, and laughter. Several of our people have noticed a big improvement in their interaction styles,” she continues.

In addition to this award from Great Place to Work, PEER Group has also been named a Best Workplace in Canada (#3 in 2019!), a Certified Best Workplace, and a Best Workplace for Technology, Millennials, Inclusion, Women, and Giving Back. See our Awards webpage for details.
