Western Honoured as a 2024 Top Alberta Employer
Western was honoured as a Top 80 Alberta Employer (2024) in the regional category.
Even though the award is Alberta-based, given our head office location, our success is a testament to the valuable contributions of all our People from coast to coast.
“It's truly an honour to be selected as one of Alberta's leading employers in the insurance industry," said Kenny Nicholls, President and CEO.
"In connection with our People Pillar, receiving this award reflects our commitment to caring for our People and the communities we all share and our collective efforts in creating a workplace we can all be proud of."
Thank you for your passion and dedication in helping us reach this level of acknowledgment four years in a row!
Achieving this recognition does not mean we don’t still have work to do. But it does show that our efforts to make Western a great place to work are recognized beyond our walls; ensuring we remain competitive and attractive to top talent.
The 2024 provincial award recognizes 80 organizations in the province as part of an annual competition led by editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers, which acknowledges those companies leading their industries by offering exceptional places to work.
Congratulations to each company recognized for their exceptional efforts to make a difference in the lives of their employees – it's an honour to be part of this group of change-makers.
Here are some of the reasons why we were selected as one of Alberta's Top Employers (2024):
- We offer a generous benefits package that includes above-average support for mental health coverage to support our People.
- All new employees receive three weeks of paid vacation and 14 wellness days annually.
- Employees have the opportunity to share in our successes through a share purchase plan, and we support long-term savings through matching RSP contributions.
