Payments provider’s Canadian HR team honoured for ‘Achievement in Benefits Design and Administration’ at international business awards
Montreal, Quebec. 23rd September 2019 – Global payments provider Paysafe Group (Paysafe) today announced that its Canadian HR unit was awarded with the ‘Gold’ award in the ‘HR Achievement in Benefits Design and Administration’ category at the 2019 Stevie® Awards for Great Employers. The ceremony was held last Friday, 20th September, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel, New York City.
Paysafe’s top award in the field of employee benefits recognizes a milestone year for the company’s Montreal and Calgary-based team of 14 HR professionals, who support close to 600 employees across three offices. Following strong company growth, the team introduced a more flexible modular benefits program, providing employees with more choice in their medical and dental benefits. Powered by a new service provider, the plan also offered state-of-the-art technology via mobile apps.
In tandem, the HR team revamped the Canadian group retirement plan, increasing the company’s employer matching contribution and offering employees more diverse investment options.
The team also spearheaded a range of other activities to improve the employee experience. These included a weekly running club, fortnightly spinning classes and catered healthy lunches as well as a new monthly book club, culminating in biannual Wellness Weeks. In addition, the team expanded the company’s diversify and inclusion (D&I) strategy through an external audit, internal trainings and the introduction of a network of D&I champions.
Benefiting the community was also a strong focus for the team through an unprecedented range of corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities. Autism Canada, Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Fondation En Coeur, and UNICEF were among more than 15 charities that benefited from the CSR program.
Paysafe’s ‘Gold’ Stevie® award follows the company being presented with three 2019 Career Show Awards on 10thSeptember in Sofia, Bulgaria: ‘Best Career Development Program’, ‘Best Recruitment Innovation’, and being named the third ‘Best Employer’ in the country.
Nick Walker, Chief Human Resources Officer at Paysafe Group, said: “I’m delighted to see our Canadian HR team receive the top honour at the prestigious Stevie® Awards for Great Employers in the category for benefits, which is at the heart of the employee experience and retention. As we strive across all our offices to make Paysafe an exceptional company, it’s impressive to see two of our global HR teams recognized in as many weeks.”
