Credit Counselling Society Recognized for a Second Year as One of Canada’s Best Places to Work

It’s official! The Credit Counselling Society has once again been recognized by the Great Place to Work® Institute Canada as one of the “Best Workplaces in Canada” for 2013. The list was published this morning in the Globe and Mail.

Credit Counselling Society has been voted one of the best workplaces in Canada by its employees.
For a second year in a row the Credit Counselling Society has been recognized as one of Canada’s top 100 employers.

For Canadian companies with under 1,000 employees, the Credit Counselling Society ranked 38th on the list of top 50 companies.

What it Means to be Recognized as One of Canada’s Best Workplaces

“I am deeply proud of the work we do on behalf of consumers in Canada, and even after nearly 17 years at CCS, I am amazed to be surrounded by such remarkable team members. I am truly humbled by your commitment and integrity,” shared Scott Hannah, President & CEO of the Credit Counselling Society in his remarks to the team.

Scott goes on to say that, “Last year was a challenging year, filled with tremendous growth and opportunity, as well as the occasional set back. However, we worked through it as a team and together we found solutions that let us serve our clients with the utmost care, respect and attention.”

This is only the second time that the Credit Counselling Society has applied for this award. Scott notes that, “The mark of a truly great organization is being able to repeat the win – and we have.”

Credit Counselling Society Grows to Meet Consumer Demand

The Credit Counselling Society has been growing to keep up with an unprecedented demand for its services and programs. In the first 3 months of 2013 alone, they have maintained their workplace culture despite adding 17% more employees. In addition, they added new offices and expanded existing office locations across Canada to help people manage their money and debt better, by giving them the tools and resources they need to look forward to a better financial future.

At the heart of the organization and fundamental to its workplace culture are employees who care deeply and who are fully committed to helping consumers with their debt and money problems.

The “Best Workplaces in Canada” is published annually in the Globe and Mail and as a special feature on their website. It is based on surveys and research conducted by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. Annually the Great Place to Work Institute surveys over 10 million employees around the world and publishes its findings to promote excellence in the workplace. Other well known organizations that were recognized in 2013 by the Great Place to Work® Institute Canada include Google, Microsoft, McDonald’s, Starbucks and BMW.
