Consistent Excellence: Two Years Among Canada’s Top Small and Medium Employers

Adding to our 2023 achievements, Riva is once again proud to be named among Canada’s Top Small and Medium Employers. This consecutive recognition highlights our dedication to maintaining a workplace culture that nurtures growth, values diversity, and prioritizes employee well-being.

Investing in Growth: Empowering Our Team

In the meticulous evaluation process by the Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers panel, Riva’s standout performance across various categories, such as work atmosphere, community involvement, and performance management, garnered notable attention. This year, our commitment to fostering personal and professional growth stood out, earning us special recognition.

Riva’s dedication to employee development is exemplified through our generous tuition subsidies, enabling our team members to pursue external coursework and attain professional credentials. Aldo Zanoni, our CEO, emphasizes the significance of this investment, stating, “We hire people for their integrity, expertise, and curiosity. When they demonstrate their commitment to continuous learning, they simply confirm the enthusiasm we see during the hiring process. The return on investment is enormous.”

Prioritizing Wellness: A Holistic Approach

Judges also highlighted Riva’s unwavering focus on employee wellness as a pivotal factor in our award win. Our benefits plan includes a fully discretionary health spending account, ensuring our employees have the resources they need for their well-being.

Furthermore, our internal events and initiatives integrate eight dimensions of wellness, providing holistic benefits that extend beyond traditional healthcare. Aldo Zanoni acknowledges the efforts of our human resources team, stating, “Well-being is as essential to individual and workplace success as food and shelter. My hat is off to our human resources team for their efforts to prioritize and promote the holistic health of our incredible workforce. They’re tireless in their commitment to the people responsible for our success.”

Looking Ahead

As we celebrate this remarkable achievement, we remain steadfast in our commitment to fostering an inclusive, innovative, and supportive workplace. Riva’s success is a reflection of the dedication and talent of our team members, whose contributions propel us forward year after year.
