CMI has made this year’s Canadian Mortgage Professional Best Mortgage Employers list
Online PR News – 04-May-2021 – Toronto, ON – Mississauga-headquartered Canadian Mortgages Inc. (CMI) has been recognized in the latest Best Mortgage Employers report released by Canadian Mortgage Professional. This prestigious list spotlights the best places to work in Canada’s mortgage industry – as chosen by the employees themselves.
Competing against mortgage companies nationwide, CMI achieved a high score of 86.73% in the 26 to 100 employees category to secure their position as a Best Mortgage Employer.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic pushed brokers out of the office and into a remote working model, virtual meetings and conference calls took the place of lunchroom chats and in-person meetings. The traditional brick-and-mortar image of a workplace was replaced by a virtual arrangement that caused a variety of new challenges and opportunities to emerge,” says the CMP team. “But even with the disruption of the pandemic, some things didn’t change, including the expectations employees had of their employers. For this year’s Best Mortgage Employers survey, mortgage professionals from across Canada cast their votes on how their organizations measured up on a number of key indicators – and the results suggest that the country’s top 42 mortgage employers have maintained an admirable level of dedication and commitment to their staff, despite the travails of the past year.”
For Bryan Jaskolka, CEO of Canadian Mortgages Inc., the company’s ranking among the top mortgage employers in Canada comes down to its biggest strength: its people. CMI maintains a strong focus on both understanding and respecting its employees’ backgrounds, strengths and motivations, making sure to present opportunities for continuous education and career advancement. “By ensuring our employees have the tools they need to excel, we provide them with a platform for success where they can grow and advance, both personally and professionally,” Jaskolka says.
Having operated in an entirely virtual capacity since its inception in 2005, CMI was ideally placed to embrace the work-from-home shift brought about by the pandemic. The company has long recognized the benefits that telecommuting can bring, from more flexible schedules to a reduced carbon footprint. Jaskolka says working remotely was “business as usual” for CMI’s staff – and the company’s familiarity with the model gave it a “significant advantage” when that became the only option after the COVID-19 outbreak.
