CWB National Leasing has been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for the fifth year in a row. This recognition is a testament to its evolving workplace culture, as it continues to grow and seek ways to create a fulfilling and meaningful working environment for team members.

For 43 years, CWB National Leasing has been a household name in the equipment financing industry helping over 324,000 Canadian businesses to grow. Today, it is the largest and longest-running equipment financing company coast to coast.

“It’s our people that steer CWB National Leasing in the right direction,” said Michael Dubowec, President and CEO, CWB National Leasing. “That’s how we’ve been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for the past five years.”

When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit, ensuring the health and safety of its team members was a top priority. As a result, it was able to move all 300 of its head office team members to a safe remote working environment within days.

Though the pandemic has separated the team physically, its culture still remains in-tact; key team members stepped up willingly and banded together to create an employee engagement committee, known as the Culture Crew, ensuring that the team doesn’t lose sight of what’s important – its people.

This new committee meets weekly to discuss different ways of engaging employees both near and far, from focus groups to special interest groups to virtual coffees.

“I feel lucky to be a part of the Culture Crew,” said Melissa Conn, CWB National Leasing employee. “I really feel that this committee and its members are making a positive impact to the workplace and ensuring we’re headed in the right direction through all of the uncertainty we’re faced with.”

CWB National Leasing is full of awesome team members who are making a difference. “Looking for top talent takes time and effort, but things that take time are worth it,” said Laine Jubinville, Talent Acquisition Manager. “We’re always seeking people who bring diverse skills and experience to the table, people who are going to challenge the norm and people who are determined to make a difference in the place they work.

“Innovation, collaboration and creativity come from diverse candidate pools and employee groups. When woven into culture, employees feel welcomed and remain engaged.”
