TORONTO, April 26, 2019 – Richardson GMP, one of Canada’s largest and leading independent wealth management firms, is proud to be recognized as one of this year’s Best Workplaces™ in Canada in the Best Medium Workplaces category for 2019. This list, and related stories, will appear in a Special National Report on April 26, 2019 in The Globe and Mail.
Richardson GMP received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada, based on direct feedback from employees on their jobs and work environments of the hundreds of organizations surveyed for this year’s annual list.
“Richardson GMP is honoured to be named one of the best workplaces in Canada in our first year as a Great Place to Work,” said Andrew Marsh, President & CEO of Richardson GMP. “At our firm, people matter and relationships matter. This recognition is meaningful because it comes directly from our advisors and employees who together built a firm that not only has a great culture but a shared commitment to offering the best wealth management services” adds Andrew Marsh. “We consistently look for ways to add value to our clients lives and that positivity and drive is a constant presence in our offices from coast to coast. From the time employees join, they understand why our firm is differentiated by our unbiased, disciplined and strategic approach to wealth, but more importantly, why it is a great place to grow a career.”
Richardson GMP strives to be a leader in the financial services sector by offering employees and advisors a supportive and engaging work environment, and by dedicating resources to support professional development and growth. Further, the firm’s advisors have the freedom to grow their business and are afforded the best technology platforms available in the industry, including an impressive client portal. Richardson GMP is most known for its relationship-focused approach to servicing the varied needs of successful, entrepreneurial Canadians and their families.
The 2019 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. Together, they provide crucial data relative to five trust-building dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
This year’s list received over 400 registrations and over 80,000 employees participated in the 2019 “Best Workplaces™ in Canada” survey, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees.
