PEER Group named a 2021 Best Workplace for Inclusion

Kitchener, Ontario – May 18, 2021

The PEER Group Inc. is pleased to announce that our organization has been named on the 2021 list of Best Workplaces™ for Inclusion, after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®.

To be eligible for this list, organizations 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). Great Place to Work determined the BEST based on employee responses to inclusion-related Trust Index statements.

“I’m excited by this recognition because we’re enriched by such a wonderfully diverse group of people! We practice inclusion by honouring many journeys without devaluing different experiences. The journey to adulthood, a new country, promotion, or bouncing back from a termination at another company… The journey to finding your first job, your next career step, or your last job… These journeys become our shared experiences,” said Janice Retterath, PEER Group’s Director of HR and Administration.

“At PEER Group, we value enthusiasm, opinions, and differences. You’re expected to learn but we also want you to teach so we can grow together,” Retterath continued.
