Recognition and Rewards

Recognition and Rewards

How we acknowledge and celebrate our people for delivering great results

A key priority for the firm is to ensure that the rewards and recognition offered to our people are meaningful and timely. Through monetary and non-monetary rewards, we formally recognize those people who deliver great results while living our firm’s values of excellence, teamwork and leadership. Our aim is to thank people, value their contributions and celebrate success, whether for day-to-day efforts or major contributions.
 

Delivering recognition and rewards

Fully launched in July 2009, Marquee is the banner name for our new rewards and recognition programs. The goal of Marquee is to thank people, value their contributions and celebrate success. The three components of our Marquee program formally recognize those who deliver great results while demonstrating and reinforcing the behaviours that our firm values.

  • Acclaim: Our people tell us that they want timely and meaningful recognition for delivering noteworthy results. This program allows all employees to reward each other at any time with “dollars in points” that can be redeemed for merchandise and services. Our year-end metrics indicate that 90% of our people received at least one recognition in the past year.
  • Spotlight: In support of our “pay for performance” philosophy, this special cash bonus is available throughout the year to recognize and reward employees who go above and beyond what is expected in their roles. Anyone in a manager or more senior role can nominate a colleague or team member for rewards ranging from $1,000 to $7,500.
  • CEO Award: This nomination-based program recognizes individuals and teams who achieve outstanding results and are truly role models for the firm. Our people can nominate each other at any time for recognition as well as cash prizes ranging from up to $10,000 for individuals and $25,000 for teams.

We realize that our success as a firm in the marketplace depends on the success of our people. For this reason, our approach to corporate responsibility means that we will continue to invest in the development and well-being of our people, and support them both professionally and personally.
