Firm recognized for supporting employees to live their best professional and personal lives

  • EY Canada named one of 50 Best Workplaces in Canada 2019
  • Firm commitment to emotional and physical wellbeing remains top priority

EY Canada’s strong culture of trust, diversity and growth once again placed it on the list of Best Workplaces in Canada in 2019 by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada.

“We’re honoured to receive this award for the 11th year in a row,” says Stephen Shea, EY Canada Managing Partner, Talent. “I’m incredibly proud that others recognize our exceptional culture — which wouldn’t be possible without the commitment of our people to our values.”

EY continues to focus on creating an inclusive and flexible work environment that supports the emotional, physical and financial wellbeing of all employees. The firm offers comprehensive personal and professional career development opportunities, along with a market leading benefits package — including recently announced enhanced mental health benefits.

“Simply put, if our people are healthy then we are able to better engage our clients and communities in achieving our purpose of building a better working world,” says Shea.

“We have a responsibility to care for our employees and their overall wellbeing, and frankly it’s a win-win,” says Shea. “In addition to the $5,000 mental health benefit for each employee and family member, EY is now providing greater mental health support for our people with a free digital cognitive behaviour therapy resource that can assist with mild to moderate symptoms of depression and anxiety.”
