WCB PEI recognized as one of Atlantic Canada’s Top Employers
The Workers Compensation Board (WCB) of Prince Edward Island has been selected as one of Atlantic Canada’s Top 25 Employers for 2016 – a special designation recognizing employers in Atlantic Canada that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.
“Being included in the Atlantic Canada Top Employer list is a great accomplishment and honour – one of which we are very proud,” says Luanne Gallant, Acting CEO for the Workers Compensation Board of Prince Edward Island. “Our staff are our most valuable resource and we believe that by offering an environment where they would like to work, we will have happier, more engaged employees.”
As one of only two Prince Edward Island employers to receive this distinction, the WCB was included among a list featured in the Atlantic Business Magazine on January 6, 2016. In Atlantic Canada, over 350 employers participated in the competition.
Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition using eight criteria: physical workplace; work atmosphere and social; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and, community involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field and region to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
“Over the past two years, we have achieved the highest satisfaction scores in the history of the company among injured workers and employers,” said Stuart Affleck, WCB Board Chair. “This is the best indication that we have created a culture in which people practice collaboration, innovation and shared leadership and that our staff are well equipped to adapt to meet the needs of the people we serve. The WCB staff are continuously reflecting strategically on current programs, policies and procedures to provide improved service delivery.”
