PEER Group named a Best Workplace for Mental Wellness

Kitchener, Ontario – June 1, 2021

The PEER Group Inc. is pleased to announce that our organization has been named on the 2021 list of Best Workplaces™ for Mental Wellness.

We received this honour 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 80% of employees must agree their workplace is psychologically and emotionally healthy.

“This recognition warms my heart, especially during such a challenging time when we can’t all be together,” said Janice Retterath, Director of HR and Administration at PEER Group®.

“Some people struggle with their mental health from time to time but for others, the struggle lasts a lifetime. We’ve created a framework to enable our people to get the help they need, when they need it, and we want to normalize the idea of reaching out – where asking how to get counselling feels the same as asking where we keep the bandages. We’re proud of our efforts to create a supportive environment for mental health and thank our brave team members who make this possible,” she continued.
