The PEER Group Inc. is excited to announce that the Great Place to Work® Institute has recognized our company as one of the Best Workplaces™ in Canada for the tenth year.

We appear at #9 on the 2021 list of the country’s best medium-sized businesses (100-999 people).

“When Bob Harris and I started PEER Group almost thirty years ago, we wanted to create a company that built leading-edge software and fostered an environment where people actually wanted to work. As an organization, we put a lot of effort into ensuring that we live up to our promises so I’m very pleased that Great Place to Work has recognized our company culture year after year,” said Mike Kropp, PEER Group President & CEO.

The competition process to be ranked on the Best Workplaces list is employee-driven, based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results, and one-third comes from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to five trust-building dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

Over the years, Great Place to Work has also recognized PEER Group as a Best Workplace in several individual categories. See our full list.
