For immediate release
Moncton, NB — Medavie Blue Cross is thrilled to be one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers selected by Mediacorp Canada Inc. for 2016. This national competition determines the best employers who lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces for their employees. The award recognizes that Medavie Blue Cross provides employees with a positive work environment, supports community involvement activities and offers robust health and wellness benefits.
Medavie Blue Cross is considered one of the best places to work in Canada because:
- We’ve created a culture of wellness, and lead by example every day. 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.
- Our shareholder is the community, and we embrace this mindset. We recognize individual employee volunteer efforts by making a donation to their community organization of choice, matching team fundraising efforts and providing paid time off to volunteer for healthy causes.
- As a health benefits provider, we understand health care. We provide a variety of employee benefits that go beyond traditional health, dental, life and disability, including a health spending account, health assessment tools, employee and family assistance support as well as wellness and prevention resources.
“We have a workplace culture centred on the well-being of our employees, clients and the communities we serve. Combining this focus with our inspiring culture, community commitment and HR practices, our people are some of the most engaged and caring professionals in the country.”
– Greg Bambury, Vice President Human Resources, Medavie Blue Cross
