Our Local Impact
At Gifford Carr we are focused on supporting local. Across the regions we serve we participate in a wide variety of charitable initiatives, supporting the causes and events that ensure those communities grow and thrive.
We are proud of the charitable impact we have made across the regions we serve helping raise millions in support of foundations that help local cancer care and research, develop opportunities for success in diverse populations, elevate women in business, give back to local food banks and support kids in our local communities – among some of the few.
Our Team Culture (+ Benefits)
You may not see insurance as a team event, but at Gifford Carr, that is our culture. Maybe it’s our President’s past in sport that drives this theme home, but it is a truly supportive team across the province.
Some of the initiatives we do to help keep our team connected and working towards the same goals:
- Focus on creating a balanced work environment
Providing additional gift days off in the summer and around the holidays (on top of regular vacation time) to give our team the added recharge time with their family and friends.
- Host regular internal events
Getting our team together from across the province to celebrate team milestones, collaborate and connect!
- Big company perks in a family business culture
Including a pension plan, group benefits (health, dental, life, critical illness, and AD&D), and insurance benefits.
- Provide opportunities for professional development and continued education
Supporting our team to develop their professional skills enables us to bring our best in support of our clients and encourage our team and their growth with annual reviews and goal setting.
