Waterloo, ON – Equitable® has once again been named as one of Waterloo Area’s Top Employers by Mediacorp Canada, publishers of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This is recognition that Equitable has received since 2009. The annual designation recognizes the employers in the Kitchener-Waterloo area that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.

“Our people bring energy, passion, and dedication to their work every day. They are what makes Equitable a great place to work, with a focus on our clients, advisors, partners, and community,” said Fabien Jeudy, President and CEO at Equitable. “We are proud to support our employees and are honoured to receive this recognition again this year.”  

Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers using the same eight criteria as the national competition: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.

Equitable was specifically recognized by the selection committee for its pension program, employee benefits, including a Wellfit account and coverage for mental health supports, and ongoing commitment to work-life balance  through its hybrid model and flexible new workspace. As part of Equitable’s hybrid model, employees recently returned to a reimagined workspace at their Waterloo head office – a space redesigned to encourage collaboration and inclusiveness.
