During 2022, IGM Financial was proud to be recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 employers. One of our differentiating achievements was the move to a new hybrid work model that supports working remotely and in the office.
We asked our employees how they wanted to work, and we aligned our hybrid model to their answer. We also gave our leaders the freedom to learn, adapt and be flexible instead of driving them to a set of structured rules.
Our engagement survey results show that employees really like our approach, with our support for work/life balance at an impressive 89%.
Highlights from our annual employee engagement survey:
86% see their people leader as effective
85% are proud to work for IGM
83% feel they get the training needed to do their job
83% would gladly recommend IGM as a place to work
These results are consistent with our advisor and client surveys which remained stable or were up during the past year, showing the link between engaged employees and the people we support.
With the shift to hybrid work, our wellness programs now offer virtual and in-person activities focusing on emotional, financial, physical and social wellness.
Over 1,800 employees participated in wellness workshops, virtual fitness classes, mental health training, financial literacy education and “Wellness 101” information sessions about various benefits available to employees.
We are committed to advancing DEI across our industry, and our strategy is focused on three pillars:
Nurture a culture of allyship and inclusive leadership
Attract, develop, retain and accelerate
Leverage DEI in the marketplace
In 2022 we made significant progress by:
