We are very proud to be recognized as a Best Employer for 2017

Creating a great workplace takes the efforts of all employees. Our employees’ commitment to building our employee experience at Sovereign is what makes the difference. Because of their active involvement we are continuously improving as an organization to create an environment where talented people thrive.

Our brand statement, “Talented People. Choose Sovereign.”, is based on two key components, talent and choice.  Our talent is what differentiates us and enables us to achieve our goals. This is reflected in our vision. It is our talented and dedicated employees that have helped us write our story since 1953.  Without talented staff on Sovereign’s team, we couldn’t fulfill our Mission as a trusted source of risk solutions for Canadian business. Our employer brand is also focused around choice. We know our employees and prospective talent have a choice in where they want to work.  We want to be your employer of choice.

At Sovereign, we recognize that our Vision and Values are more than words on a wall. They reflect how we work with each other, our brokers, clients, service providers, and communities every day. Each one of us has a role to play in creating a culture of engagement – a place we are proud to be part of. Whether it is participating in our Town Halls, employee engagement surveys or applauding one of their peers, all employees at Sovereign are actively involved in creating a place where talented people want to be.
