Position: Senior Commercial Underwriter, CUMIS
Employed since: 2011
Unconditional acceptance is a reward in itself. As I live with a visible physical disability, integration into the workplace can cause one to question an employer's will and ability to satisfy related needs. CUMIS relieved this hesitation by ensuring all physical and social barriers were removed at the time of my hire. The sincere willingness to create a comfortable environment eased my transition into the group. This ideology complements the comprehensive benefits package offered, which provides employees and their families with the peace of mind and support required to deal with life events.
On a personal level, work-life balance is of the utmost importance: that perfect combination of career, family and individual time. The flexible work hours and vacation program allow me to spend that cherished time with family and friends, while being able to satisfy the work requirements of my position.
When you also factor in the competitive salary, exceptional employee recognition programs and community involvement opportunities, you can begin to understand why this company is a desired destination. Deservedly rewarding and acknowledging their employees' contributions is why The Co-operators is a regular on Canada's Best Employers lists.
