PEER Group named a 2020 Best Workplace for Inclusion

GPTW Inclusion 2020The PEER Group Inc. is proud to announce that Great Place to Work® has included us on their 2020 List of Best Workplaces™ for Inclusion. The list is based on direct feedback from employees at hundreds of organizations surveyed.

To be eligible for this list, companies 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.

“My experience at PEER Group has been very positive so far. I feel welcome here and several people have gone out of their way to ensure I am comfortable and confident being who I am. The inclusion of Gender Sensitivity Training as part of our onboarding was also great to see,” says Athena van Nacht, a software developer who joined PEER Group recently.

In 2019, Great Place to Work Canada honoured PEER Group by naming us a Top 3 Best Workplace in our category (medium-sized businesses) and named us a Best Workplace for Technology, Inclusion, Women, Mental Wellness, and Giving Back. See our Awards webpage for details.
