HOUSTON, Texas, June 17, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Place to Work® Canada has named Venterra on their 2024 Best Workplaces™ for Mental Wellness list for the second year in a row based on survey feedback provided by individuals employed at hundreds of companies across the country.

Best Workplaces for Mental Wellness

An organization needs to have met the Great Place to Work Certified™ standard and have exceptionally high scores on the Trust Index survey to be eligible for a "Best Workplace™" list, and, in the case of the 2024 Best Workplaces™ for Mental Wellness recognition, at least 80% of survey participants needed to agree with the statement "This is a psychologically and emotionally healthy place to work."

In Venterra's most recent survey of its Canadian team members, the organization significantly surpassed that metric and had 96% of survey participants agree with the statement "Taking everything into account, I would say this is a great place to work."

"I am very pleased that Venterra has been recognized once again for our commitment to mental wellness, a pledge we reinforced last year by instituting an annual mental wellness day," Venterra CEO, John Foresi. "This initiative, providing paid time off, is indicative of our ongoing dedication to the mental health and job satisfaction of our colleagues. "

"The well-being of our Venterra family is paramount, and fostering mental wellness is key to our collective health and prosperity," said Venterra Chairman, Andrew Stewart. "We've witnessed firsthand the transformative impact this focus has on our organization, and it remains a top priority for us as we continue to build a supportive and thriving work culture."

Venterra's Canada office has been recognized multiple times by the Great Place to Work® Institute. In addition to the 2024 Best Workplaces™ for Mental Wellness win, it has also been named one of the Best Workplaces™ for Professional Development, one of the Best Workplaces™ for Today's Youth, one of the Best Workplaces™ in Real Estate & Property Development, and was listed as one of the overall Best Workplaces™ in Canada.
