TIC recognized for thumbs up from employees09:21 EST Wednesday, December 19, 2012TORONTO, Dec. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - If anyone knows a company, it's the employees who work there. What the people at TIC know about us and their work environment has put us on the Best Small and Medium Employers in Canada and Best Employers in the GTA lists for 2013. We are pleased and honoured to have earned this recognition for the fourth year in a row."We received solid scores in areas including co-workers, work/life balance and physical environment," says David Hartman, TIC President and CEO. "The results tell us our employees believe we know what it takes to create a workplace they are happy to be a part of and contribute to."Our achievement fits nicely with our new brand. It reflects that we're good at - and like - what we do. That makes us experts unlike anyone else. It also highlights that we always put people first. This filters into what we do every day to deliver better, more consistent and caring service and support for our partners and their clients. We know that makes a difference in the experience they have each time they interact with us."Whether it's at work, in the field or in the community, thinking of others is part of who we are and it starts with each of our employees," added Hartman. "They are truly a special group of people and deserve the credit for our achievement. We wouldn't be the same without them."The Best GTA employer list is compiled by the AON Hewitt Human Resources consulting firm in partnership with Queen's School of Business and, Queen's Centre for Business Venturing using the results of confidential employee engagement surveys. The surveys measure three key criteria: employees' willingness to speak positively about their organization; their desire to continue to work there; and the extra effort and dedication they are willing to exert to ensure the success of the company.About TICTIC is a travel insurance company.
