Libro Credit Union is named a top employer for fourth year in a row

SOUTHWESTERN ONTARIO – For the fourth year in a row, Libro Credit Union has been announced as one of Aon Hewitt’s 2019 Platinum Level Best Employers in Canada.

Libro is again proud to be among these Canadian companies receiving such a prestigious honour. The results acknowledge organizations who demonstrate exceptionally strong performance in:

  • Employee Engagement
  • Leadership
  • Culture
  • Employment brand.
  • The accolade comes as a result of an Aon Hewitt engagement survey sent to all 670 employees of the company, which is southwestern Ontario’s largest credit union.

    CEO Steve Bolton said: “We at Libro believe this reinforces, once again, that Libro is the employer of choice in southwestern Ontario.

    “We are a company that cares deeply about people and community. Our commitment to advice, service and community is what separates us from other financial institutions and we know our staff give all they can in meeting our goal of growing prosperity for everyone.”

    It also coincides with an increase in staff compensation in response to a rise in the Living Wage in our area, announced on Thursday, November 7. Libro, which has been a Living Wage employer since 2016, now pays every member of staff at least $17.44 per hour.

    The commitment to Living Wage aligns with Libro’s compensation policy of establishing a positive work environment and providing competitive wages.

    Libro is also a B Corp, which means we have pledged to use business only as a force for good.

    More than 6,000 people join Libro every year, and more than 103,000 are members – Libro calls them Owners because they really do own the company.

    All of the 2019 winners across Canada can be found here.
