Moncton, NB — Medavie Blue Cross is thrilled to be one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers selected by Mediacorp Canada Inc. for 2017. This national competition selects the best employers who lead their industries by offering exceptional workplaces for their employees. The award recognizes that Medavie Blue Cross provides its employees with a positive work culture, offers comprehensive benefits and wellness programs and invests in the community.
Medavie Blue Cross is considered one of the best places to work in Canada because:
- We’ve created a culture of wellness, and really walk the talk. Our employee-led wellness committees run well-being and mental health activities in each location, and our annual Be Well Feel Well credit gives employees funding towards health and wellness related programs.
- We foster a high performance culture of collaboration and strive to attract and retain the right talent, with the best fit. Last year, we promoted 66% of leadership positions internally.
- Our shareholder is the community. We support the causes our employees care about and created the Healthy Change Project to further connect our employees with causes that the Medavie Health Foundation supports.
“As a health care company, we’re only as strong as our employees. We have a long term view to growing our business with an emphasis on doing what’s right for the organization, but always consider the benefits to our employees, clients and communities. It’s an honour to receive this award to recognize the value we place on progress, wellness and collaboration.”
– Eric Laberge, President, Medavie Blue Cross
