Our people


We aim to build a strong, inclusive and progressive culture, where people want to grow their careers and do their best for clients, communities and one another.

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%. 


Survey results

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

79%  overall engagement score – higher than global benchmarks


Throughout the year, we held activities and events to bring employees together



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.

Wellness at work

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.

Diversity, equity, inclusion

We are committed to advancing DEI across our industry, and our strategy is focused on three pillars: 



Inclusive workplace

Nurture a culture of allyship and inclusive leadership


Diverse talent

Attract, develop, retain and accelerate


Clients and brand

Leverage DEI in the marketplace


In 2022 we made significant progress by:

  • establishing targets for CEOs and leaders that focus on underrepresented employees
  • holding events and training sessions to foster learning and engagement
  • supporting seven business resource groups to help advance the DEI strategy
  • furthering our reconciliation journey through participation in the 4 Seasons of Reconciliation training and taking time to reflect and honor the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
