It’s said often but practiced less frequently: our people are the key to our success. We absolutely believe this and are doing all we can to create a great place to work. We’re committed to ensuring every member of our team knows they are connected and supported. By extension, our clients have the benefit of working with energetic, talented, high impact teams. Here are a few things we do to engage and inspire one another:
We Strive to Provide the Best Workplace
Not only do we hire the best, the leadership team works hard to create a positive and engaging environment for every employee. That’s why our employees consistently have good things to say about being part of the Sklar Wilton & Associates team. And that’s why we were named the #1 Employee Recommended Workplace in Canada.
“It’s very engaging to be part of a culture that is so Better Together!”
“[I] feel very lucky and proud to be part of such a great energized team.”
“Really just keep doing what you’re doing so we can all continue to enjoy coming to work everyday, thriving in a crazy work world and celebrating when outsiders recognize what a great place we are.”
“SW&A has created an environment where people can thrive. From the ability to create your own future to a focus on personal well-being, every offering allows you to enjoy coming to work everyday.”
“Just a HUGE thank-you! I continue to feel so grateful that I have the opportunity to work at such an incredible place.”
“Thank-you partners for another great year and commitment to making this company fantastic.”
“SW&A is a place where I feel like I’m not just an employee but a whole person.”
“The partner team cares deeply about SWAN engagement – we can both see and feel that.”

We’ve Been Named a Best Workplace in Canada in the Small Companies Category Twice!
Last year, we were named the #1 Best Workplace in Canada among companies with fewer than 50 employees. This year, among companies with fewer than 100 employees, we’re thrilled to place 11th! Thank you to our team for coming to work each day with energized, positive, and creative minds. And thank you to our clients for keeping these minds sharp with your tough marketing challenges.
We Received Special Honours Two Years in a Row!
In 2017, we were honoured by the Great Place to Work Institute as one of the Best Workplaces For Celebrating Success. And, in 2018, we were named one of the Best Workplaces for Women, and one of the Best Workplaces in Professional Services. Key takeaway: we value our associates!
We’ve Been Named an Employee Recommended Workplace Twice!
After being named the #1 Employee Recommended Workplace among small private companies by the Globe and Mail and Morneau Shepell in 2017, Sklar Wilton & Associates was once again named a finalist in 2018. This award recognizes excellence relative to the total health of our team – a real tribute to the belief in and success of our whole person development approach.
CAREER AND ‘WHOLE PERSON’ DEVELOPMENT
We believe in playing to strengths. As a result, our personal development plans focus first on what we love doing and what we’re great at. We’re encouraged to dream big and are flexible enough to work together to “make it up and make it real.”
We also take a “whole person” approach to learning and offer regular mind, body and spirit learning opportunities through our Spirit 32 initiatives. Past modules have included mindfulness, naturopathic remedies, nutrition and stress management.
We genuinely like hanging out together. A steady stream of fun events gives us that opportunity. Our main events include Thirsty Thursdays, Fun Days, our holiday party and semi-annual offsites.
We get exponential results when we bring the knowledge and experience of our team together to solve a problem or leverage an opportunity. We believe so strongly in shared learning that we’ve coined our own term, “Power of 32.” For those who work here, this means access to more smart minds when solving a problem. For clients, it means access to the latest thinking and frameworks across a range of industries and challenges.
We also have a formal university curriculum to keep our skill sets sharp and ensure our clients are benefiting from the most relevant tools and frameworks.
