Oppenheimer Group
Oppy employees represent the organization at an event  

Recognized as one of BC's Top Employers (2022):

Here are some of the reasons why Oppenheimer Group was selected as one of BC's Top Employers (2022):

  • Oppy was quick to move employees to work-from-home arrangements and introduced appropriate mitigation measures at the onset of the pandemic and has followed up with enhanced support for employees over the past year, setting up a mental health micro-site on the corporate intranet that offers free online resources, counselling support and referral services, and webinars -- and the company publishes an online wellness newsletter that covers a range of topics, from parenting through the pandemic to ergonomics, to healthy recipes
  • With longstanding roots dating back to the 1850s, Oppy lets employees share in the company's success through year-end bonus and profit-sharing programs -- and encourages employees to plan for the future with retirement planning assistance and a defined contribution pension plan
  • Oppy recently established a maternity leave top-up policy to support employees who are new mothers, offering 75 per cent of salary for up to 12 weeks -- employees can also apply to extend their leave into an unpaid leave of absence as well as phase in their return when ready to come back to work
