TORONTO, March 25, 2014 /CNW/ - For the 3rd year in a row, Questrade has been named one of Canada's Best Managed Companies. To celebrate the
award, Questrade turned the spotlight on its employees with a video --
What we believe - to capture how a culture of camaraderie, fun, and most of all, dedication to client service has
been the key to its success.
"I am inspired every day by the team at Questrade," said Edward
Kholodenko, President and CEO of Questrade. "I see how hard everyone
works and how much they care for each other and every single client.
Perhaps this is the secret of our success: every voice is heard, whether the
employee is an intern or a manager. Everyone is valued, from a client
with a small first account or with a big nest egg."
Adds Kris Tierney, Chief People Officer and one of 16 employees included
in the video: "I believe in what we're doing here because we are making
a difference. We're changing how Canadians look at their financial
services. We're making it better by focusing on affordability,
innovation, and something you don't typically expect from our industry:
humanity. We put people first - and that's how it should be."
As part of the announcement, Questrade is asking Canadians to share what
they believe in through Twitter or Facebook, and by sharing the video and commenting on the Youtube channel.
Canada's Best Managed Companies recognizes Canadian companies that have
implemented world-class business practices and created value in
innovative ways, including: new technologies, globalization, brand
management, leadership, leveraging and developing core competencies,
designing information systems, and hiring the right talent to
facilitate growth. What we believe was shot entirely with Questrade staff on site in Toronto. Questrade
also has offices in Vancouver and Yerevan, Armenia.
