TORONTO – April 26, 2019 – After being named the number one company in 2017 and the 11th company in 2018, Sklar Wilton & Associates, a leading Canadian marketing and research consultancy, was named 7th on the list of Best Workplaces in Canada among small companies by The Great Place to Work Institute.
The Great Place to Work award recognizes Sklar Wilton & Associates’ ongoing commitment to creating and growing a positive workplace culture as identified by the Great Place to Work® Institute, which helps organizations identify, create, and sustain great workplaces through the development of high-trust workplace cultures. Organizations must first demonstrate through detailed employee feedback that they consistently demonstrate the behaviours of a great workplace, meaning that their employees trust them, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with.
“Our goal as a company has been to help our clients succeed by solving their tough business challenges,” said Jennifer Marley, Partner, Sklar Wilton & Associates. “Helping them succeed means we must first help our associates succeed, and that includes supporting their personal and professional growth through relevant and regular training and growth opportunities, as well as by supporting their physical and mental health.”
“We are fortunate to place so well three years in a row,” said Sarah Liverance, Partner at Sklar Wilton & Associates. “We work hard to create an environment where every associate has challenging and fulfilling work, and where they know they are supported in their efforts to do so. It’s rewarding to know that not only have we succeeded in helping our clients build their brands, we’ve also succeeded in helping our associates on that path.”
