For the twelfth time in 16 years, Manitoba Blue Cross has been named one of Manitoba’s Top Employers by Mediacorp.
“This is an important recognition for all of us at Manitoba Blue Cross,” says president & chief executive officer Benjamin Graham. “The satisfaction and well-being of our employees is top of mind with everything we do, so this award is more proof that we continue to be on the right path.”
On top of continuing to deliver on our many initiatives, this past year has seen a stronger focus on wellness initiatives – not only for our clients and members, but for our staff as well. In addition to piloting a hybrid work environment and encouraging physical activity breaks, we’ve launched Wellness Wednesdays, an internal initiative that sees employee-led wellness workshops each week.
These efforts have been well received. In a recent survey, 93 per cent of employees said they are proud to work at Manitoba Blue Cross and more than 75 per cent of employees have participated in at least one Wellness Wednesday session, with 92 per cent of attendees returning for further sessions.
“The unprecedented success we’ve had with Wellness Wednesdays and our other wellness initiatives is very encouraging. That success comes down to the creativity and drive of employees throughout the organization,” Graham says. “I’m looking forward to further success as we roll out other wellness initiatives in the coming months.”
