Partners and Advisors

Partners are organizations who share our enthusiasm and vision for empowering employees, resulting in a thriving workplace.

Partners are employers of choice — providing a place where people want to work. They are role models, and believe in the mission of developing thriving workplaces and supporting the teams that work within. They engage in a comprehensive, multi-year program with Your Workplace to ensure that you receive the resources you need to be the best you can be. Together with our Partners, we form a community that works together to advance our vision of thriving workplaces for all in Canada.
