Recognized as one of Manitoba's Top Employers (2021):

Here are some of the reasons why Johnston Group Inc. was selected as one of Manitoba's Top Employers (2021):

  • Through the company's health benefits plan, Johnston Group encourages overall employee wellness through a dedicated internal wellness program that focuses on physical and emotional wellness, mental health (plan includes a $2,500 mental health practitioners benefit) and spiritual wellness -- the program was moved online during the pandemic and featured regular online yoga and fitness classes as well as other helpful initiatives
  • Johnston Group helped its mostly offsite workforce (95 per cent of employees moved to work from home early in the pandemic) keep in touch through a unique online "television show" called JG Coffee and Friends -- the show was hosted by two charismatic employees who interviewed fellow employees and even local celebrities
  • Johnston Group encourages employees to get involved in the community with matching charitable donations and informal paid volunteer days -- and the company reached out to all of the community organizations and agencies they assist during the pandemic to assure their support would continue and increased its support for those agencies in greater need, such as the United Way and the Kids Help Phone
