CapriCMW Named One of the 2018 Best Workplaces in Canada

May 2, 2018 – CapriCMW Insurance Services Ltd., a leading independent insurance brokerage based in BC, has been recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada. This is CapriCMW’s eighth time on this list, published as a Special National Report in the April 27, 2018 issue of The Globe and Mail.

“We are very proud and honoured to be among the Best Workplaces in Canada. This is a true reflection of our incredible team who are the core of our positive, supportive and progressive culture,” said Andrew Kemp, Co-President. “Our people make CapriCMW a great workplace and help us continue attracting and retaining the best talent.”

By taking a people-first approach through an employee share ownership plan, wellness and peer recognition programs and many other staff-driven initiatives, CapriCMW employees see the results of their contributions and are rewarded and recognized company-wide.

“Having undergone a merger in 2017 and now with over 400 employees, our eighth appearance on this list is a testament to how, despite our rapid growth and transformation, we have stayed true to our roots and maintain a culture of genuine care and concern for the well-being of our teams, our clients, and our communities,” said Tim Miller, Co-President.

The 2018 Best Workplaces in Canada list is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures.

This year’s list received over 400 entries and over 80,000 employees participated in the 2018 “Best Workplaces in Canada” survey.
