TORONTO, ON, FEB. 11, 2019/insPRESS/ – For the third consecutive year, FIRST Insurance Funding of Canada (FIRST Canada) was recognized as an Employee Recommended Workplace from human resources consulting and technology company Morneau Shepell, in association with The Globe and Mail.

This recognition is based solely on employee feedback gathered from a survey that measures the total health of a workplace including physical, mental, work, and life factors. Companies are recognized as an Employee Recommended Workplace if they earn excellent scores in providing a healthy, engaged, and productive culture.

The employee survey is based on Morneau Shepell’s Total Health Index (THI), a suite of analytical tools that helps organizations improve the overall health, engagement, and productivity of their workforce.
