TORONTO – April 26, 2018 – Sklar Wilton & Associates, a leading Canadian research and marketing consultancy, has been named on the 2018 list of Best Workplaces™ Managed by Women by the Great Place To Work® Institute.

The GPTW program recognizes a company’s ongoing commitment to creating and growing a positive workplace culture through the development of high-trust workplace cultures.

The list of Best Workplaces™ Managed by Women is based on direct feedback from employees of hundreds of organizations surveyed by Great Place to Work®.

With an executive partnership consisting of two women (Jennifer Marley and Sarah Liverance) and two men (Charlie Wilton and Manoj Raheja), Sklar Wilton & Associates purposefully created an executive leadership model that would model diversity and breadth of expertise.

“Diverse leadership teams are important for many reasons. Our broad range of perspectives and points of view help us discover better solutions to our client’s business challenges,” said Sarah Liverance, Partner at Sklar Wilton & Associates. “Our diverse leadership team also enables us to relate more personally with all of our associates.  And of course, research has shown that diverse teams are more innovative and successful. We’ve worked hard to build a team of the best people, and that starts at the top with a diverse leadership team. We’re proud to know that our team appreciates what we’ve built.”
