PEER Group recognized as a Best Workplace, 8th consecutive year

Kitchener, Ontario – April 16, 2020

Best Workplaces in Canada 2020The PEER Group Inc. is pleased to announce that Great Place to Work® named us one of this year’s Best Workplaces™ in Canada. For the eighth consecutive year, Great Place to Work recognizes our workplace culture and we sit at #6 on the 2020 list of Canada’s best medium-sized companies.

“PEER Group® hires great people and we want to create a working community that supports camaraderie, creativity, and success. We want a workplace that welcomes people from all over the world, from all ages and all stages of life. We want to share the wisdom we have learned and earned. We want to lift each other up and we have built a strong, resilient workplace that can weather storms and come out stronger,” says Janice Retterath, PEER Group’s director of HR and administration.

“Our great workplace full of great people has created a great company – a Great Place to Work,” Retterath continues.

The 2020 Best Workplaces in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work Institute. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results and the remaining 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.

The list and related stories will appear in a Special National Report on Friday April 17, 2020 in The Globe and Mail. For more information please contact the Institute at [email protected] or visit
