Named One of Atlantic Canada’s Best Places to Work
The Cooke Insurance Group was named one of the 2009 “Best Places to Work in Atlantic Canada.” “What an honor, we are thrilled our team enjoys coming to work” says Stephanie Cooke-Landry, Operations Manager at The Cooke Insurance Group. A driving factor for this year’s roster is that most of the companies excel in creating a healthy work/life balance for their employees. For all the organizations, flexibility around scheduling, family life, and personal time is imperative.
The yearly list, compiled by Progress Magazine, surveys for-profit businesses, not-for-profit organizations, and government entities in the Atlantic region, assessing their “strengths and opportunities”. Both employers and employees are surveyed. To be eligible, companies must have a facility in the region with a minimum of 25 employees based here, and they have to have been in business for at least one year.
The list rankings were announced in June 19th at a luncheon in Halifax held to honour the winners. The 2009 Best Places to Work in Atlantic Canada will appear in the July/August issue of Progress magazine.
Adds Jeff Cooke- President, “ When you often spend more time at work than with family it is extremely important for us to insure we have a healthy, happy productive team.”
