CapriCMW Named One of the 2020 Best Workplaces in Canada


April 17, 2020 - CapriCMW Insurance Services Ltd., a leading independent insurance brokerage, has been named on the 2020 list of Best Workplaces™ in Canada. This is CapriCMW’s tenth appearance on this list, published as a Special National Report in the April 17, 2020 issue of The Globe and Mail.

“We are very proud and honoured to be recognized once again as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada. This is truly a reflection of the incredible team we have here at CapriCMW,” said Andrew Kemp, President. “Together, we have built and nurtured a culture that encourages collaboration, creativity and a genuine care and concern for each other, our clients and our communities. Our people make us a great workplace and we are extremely grateful for each member of the CapriCMW family.”

Through an employee share ownership plan, wellness and peer recognition programs as well as many staff-driven initiatives, CapriCMW rewards and recognizes the contributions of team members while helping them maintain a healthy work-life balance. 

The 2020 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute.  The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results and the remaining one-third comes from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. 

This year’s list received over 400 registrations and over 80,000 employees participated in the 2020 “Best Workplaces™ in Canada” survey.
