CAMBRIDGE, Ont. – Cowan Insurance Group was named one of Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures of 2015 today.
The award was created by Waterstone Human Capital and recognizes Canadian organizations that have a culture that has helped them enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage.
Each year, forty winners in total are chosen across four categories. Three are based on revenue (growth and small cap, mid-market and enterprise) and one not-for-profit category (broader public sector). Cowan was nominated in the mid-market category. Nominees are scored on: vision and leadership, recruitment and hiring for fit, cultural alignment and measurement, retention, rewards and recognition, organizational performance and corporate social responsibility.
According to Cowan, its submission highlighted a culture characterized by excellence, commitment and innovation.
“It is truly an honour to be counted as a company among the 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures this country has to offer,” said Heather McLachlin, president, Cowan Insurance Group. “We’ve created an impressive culture characterized by an “anything is possible” attitude, where our leaders are actively engaged with their employees, and encourage taking initiative—with the goal of delivering exceptional value to our clients.”
“We care about what you care about’ is the cornerstone of everything Cowan Insurance Group’s team members do, and its well-aligned culture has delivered exceptional performance and results,” said Jennifer Mondoux, managing director, Waterstone Human Capital. “Combine this with Cowan’s impressive Corporate Social Responsibility strategy, in that its foundation has raised $20M in community-related donations, and it’s no wonder our Canada’s 10 board voted as they did. Congratulations to President Heather McLachlin and to the entire team at Cowan for this well-deserved win.”
