Wedgwood Insurance is honored to have been named one of 20 of Atlantic Canada’s Best Places to Work by Atlantic Business Magazine.

“There are many excellent employers across Atlantic Canada, but this program was established to recognize companies and organizations that are 100% committed to HR excellence—workplaces where going above and beyond is the norm,” said executive editor and co-owner Dawn Chafe in the story introduction.

The “norm” in this instance includes flexible work options, competitive salaries, and comprehensive health benefits. Going above and beyond ultimately comes down to workplace culture: respecting employees, valuing their input, and enabling them to have a measurable impact on how an organization is managed.

We’re thrilled to be recognized as one of Atlantic Canada’s Best Places to Work,” says Wedgwood President Tom Hickey. “That reflects the culture we have built here. We’ve got three central core values: leadership, commitment, and preparation. Everything we do, from our client experience to our team interactions, we try to live those values.”

“In 2020, we partnered with Newfoundland-based Cyno, a virtual healthcare platform that provides their team access to healthcare services from the comfort of their home. “The uptake we’ve seen from our team is tremendous,” says Jamie Ross, Marketing & Communications. “From in-home or even in-office blood collection to group Zumba classes to financial planning, they’ve booked a wide variety of services unique to their wants and needs.”

“We invest in our people because successful people make successful businesses.”, says Hickey. “Our team, our culture, our way of doing things; that is our competitive advantage.”
