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

“I’m very pleased that we continue to be named a Best Workplace for Women because we’ve purposefully built an inclusive culture where everyone can flourish.
