Workplace Benefits Awards’ winners celebrate success

Nearly 60 top influencers in the benefits, pension and investment industries gathered for a luncheon at the Arcadian Court in Toronto on Oct. 20 to recognize and honour leaders in their fields for their achievements in the employee benefits space.

At the luncheon, the field of 19 finalists learned who among them would take home awards in six categories for their originality and creativity in introducing new processes and programs to improve the working lives of their employees.
