The key to our success is our people
At Ecclesiastical, we believe in a culture of shared ownership and accountability, and an environment of collaboration and respect. We also believe that our people are our “brand.” They constitute our key differentiator in the marketplace. Our success is fuelled by who they are as people and by their efforts and performance. That’s why we look to attract and retain top talent and why we are committed to employee-related programs that align with our core values and guiding principles. As an equal opportunity employer, Ecclesiastical embraces diversity and social responsibility.
Continuous learning and professional development
We encourage everyone on our staff to enhance their skills and talents and fully develop their potential. Through internal training, and by sponsoring and funding external programs, we provide opportunities for continuous professional development. Our Business Intern Program is best-of-class and offers accelerated learning for recent university graduates who are committed to pursuing insurance-related careers. This three-year rotational program forms the basis of our efforts to grow talent from within. Employees who attain industry and professional designations receive generous achievement rewards.
Competitive compensation, pension and benefits
Employees receive industry and market-competitive salaries and an incentive program tied to company results. We also offer industry-competitive, company-funded health, wellness and dental plans to protect employees and their families from many life challenges. And we provide a generous Defined Contribution Pension Plan, as well as two paid ‘Personal Days’ each year.
Good corporate citizenship
Ecclesiastical employees are encouraged to donate their time and skills to charities, community programs, and organizations that enrich quality of life and create opportunities for others. Employees also have one paid ‘Volunteer Day’ to volunteer at a charity of their choice.
