Any company can arbitrarily select a list of corporate values and promote them to their employees—and indeed, many do. What distinguishes Western’s Guiding Principles is that they emerged when we asked ourselves the question, “What are the attributes of the people we admire most in our company?” We let our employees set the bar, because we know that a reputation for excellence isn’t just bestowed on a company, it’s created by the collection of individuals who bring the best of who they are to work every day—and share it with everyone.
The foundation of our company
Every plan, decision and contract we enter into relies on our Guiding Principles. They apply to our customers, to our communities, to our insurance providers and to every employee.
Truthfulness * Fairness * Value * Loyalty
What Our Employees Say!
“Leaving school, I never considered a career in the insurance industry. I am very happy that I decided to join the Western team; their commitment to educating and developing their employees has led to many opportunities within the organization.”
Stephen R - Manager – Employee Benefits Service Centre
"Why should you consider a career in insurance? Insurance is a wonderful line of business in which to be employed. Constant learning and improving your skills and knowledge, helping your customers to protect themselves and their families, as well as creating financial stability and career growth are just a few of the highlights. Having 24 years of experience in insurance, I can definitely say that it has been a great career choice and I love what I do every single day!"

"My experience working for Western has been career changing. Not only was I given the opportunity to excel in my career, but I also given the tools and most importantly support from the mangers through to the CEO. I was able to grow professionally and through this grow a book of business that supports the company as a whole. I would strongly recommend anyone looking for their own opportunity to try Western. Western is a growing company with lots of chances to upgrade and excel in your career. Great wages, excellent benefits and most importantly home grown in Western Canada. This is a great place to start, change or grow with us."

“My experience at Western as a career choice has been extremely rewarding. I’ve had the opportunity to work across 4 very different departments over 2 distinct business units, all while being supported in continuing my education (CAIB, CIP, CRM) to fine-tune my technical knowledge and providing me with the tools to grow professionally in all aspects. I am a leader and mentor to my teams and always look forward to the everyday challenges that come with my role. There are so many great opportunities to join our team and become part of Western’s winning culture.”

"Choosing Western as a career choice has been amazing. I’ve had the opportunity to start out as administrative assistant, move to an insurance advisor, then onto managing offices in Manitoba and I now manage two offices in Alberta. Along my career path Western provided the support, training, mentoring and resources to help me achieve my goals. Western truly provides career development and opportunities…for which I am grateful."
