The 100 organizations that earned the designation are leaders in attracting and retaining young professionals. They offer a variety of benefits, including such things as tuition assistance, training programs, career management guidance and co-op or work-study programs.
"One of the keys to building a strong team is being able to attract talented young people whose expertise can benefit your organization - and vice-versa - for many years to come," said Kevin Daniel, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Co-operators Life Insurance Company. "We know that once a person comes to work for us, they stay here for a long time; we have a very low turnover rate. For that reason, it is particularly important to be seen as an employer of choice among young professionals, and this recognition and validation is certainly good news on that front."
Co-operators Life was specifically identified for having:
- Opportunities to interact directly with the Executive Vice president and Chief Operating Officer through "Breakfast with Kevin"
