Employee Testimonials

Roz Kassam, CIP

"As I reflect on what the 15-year journey has been for me, it seems an appropriate time to express my gratitude to the best team anyone could ask for. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone, who has directly or indirectly been a part of my Wawanesa journey so far. I am grateful for my work family: a strong and kind group of people who work in harmony; and younger members who never cease to amaze me with their quick wit and compassionate ways. When I walk in through the door every morning, in my heart, I know that I am in a safe place (home) where trust, respect, and dignity reside. I am also grateful for the trust that Wawanesa has placed in me to make decisions on behalf of the company, making the resources and tools available, and also enabling personal and professional growth in a supportive environment. I understand that I am entrusted with the responsibility to invest on behalf of the company, and that to me is a badge of pride."

Justin Pursaga

"Over the last 10+ years that I’ve been with the company, I’ve never been in a role for longer than 2 years. The opportunity to move around and build experience has been phenomenal for my career. I also have a deep appreciation for the amount of support that I received from my colleagues and Wawanesa when my wife and I welcomed our Son into our family. After two baby showers, countless emails, hugs, high fives, and endless smiles (oh and not to mention the generous parental top-up benefit!), it has become so clear to me, that my career is more than just a job, Wawanesa is an extension of my family."
