(Kingston, ON – February 13, 2019) – The Empire Life Insurance Company (Empire Life) (TSX: EML.PR.A) has been recognized as one of Canada’s top employers, according to Forbes Media.

Each year, Forbes recognizes 300 Canadian companies whose employees speak highly of their organizations and the opportunities and rewards offered to them at work. 

“We’re fortunate because we have very active and engaged employees who do things every day to make Empire Life a great place to work, learn and grow,” says David Keneford, Vice-President and Chief Human Resources Officer. “While we know attractive compensation, interesting work, and professional development opportunities are important to attracting and retaining top talent, we believe it’s our workplace culture that attracts people to our organization and makes them want to stay with us.”  

The independent survey, conducted for Forbes by market research company Statista,  asks more than 8,000 Canadians working for companies with at least 500 employees whether they would recommend their employer to family and friends. Participants are also asked to give their opinions on a series of statements such as working conditions, salary, potential for development and company image.
