PEER Group named a Best Workplace for Giving Back

Kitchener, Ontario – August 24, 2021

PEER Group donating to KW Humane Society

The PEER Group Inc. is pleased to announce that our organization appears on the 2021 list of Best Workplaces™ for Giving Back. We received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work® (GPTW) Canada.

To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work-Certified™ in the past year and at least a 90% of employees must feel good about the way their company contributes to community. GPTW determined the list based on the Community Investment Index score from employees and the range and quality of programs which encourage workplace community investment.

“One of my favourite things about PEER Group is the kindness and generosity I see in my colleagues every day. We do lots of fun things together to raise money for several charities,” says Mary Sweeny who acts as PEER Group’s giving coordinator.

“We play virtual BINGO, host silent auctions, and we sell takeout meals that our people can pick up curbside. All the money we raise goes to charity and PEER Group matches our donations,” Sweeny continues.
