Burbank, CA, October 2, 2019 – Entertainment Partners (“EP”), the leading global end-to-end provider of production workforce management and automated production services to the entertainment industry, has announced that its Canadian division has been named to the 2019 list of Best Workplaces™ in Canada for Millennials. In August the Canadian Division was also named the 2019 list of Best Workplaces™ in Canada for Financial Services and Insurance.
The newest recognition was determined after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®, based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations surveyed. To be eligible for this list, organizations must have been Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year, at least 30% of their employees must fit the Millennial demographic (born after 1980) and they must have minimum 90% positive response to the statement “I am treated fairly regardless of my age.”
Entertainment Partners acquired EP Canada, with offices in Toronto and Vancouver, in May 2017.
Canadian President Cheryl Nex was named to Entertainment Partners’ Executive team as Chief Client Experience Officer in 2018. Nex began at the company in 1989 as a junior payroll clerk and worked her way up the ranks, becoming President in 2006. “We are truly honored by this recognition,” noted Nex. “We aim to be a great place to work for all generations and the fact that our millennials feel so engaged and supported is an indication of the strong, inclusive culture everyone works hard to develop.”
