Billyard Insurance Group (BIG) is rapidly expanding, announcing the creation of 40 new jobs at their Head Office in Welland, ON in anticipation of another 20 locations to be opening in the coming months. With continued exponential growth, the newly renovated Welland office now serves as company headquarters, with 90 staff currently supporting 60+ branches across Alberta, Ontario, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. In fact, BIG’s success has been recognized by the Globe and Mail’s Report on Business, naming them one of Canada’s Top Growing Companies in 2020.
BIG’s Head Office employees comprise an ever-growing team of underwriters, insurance brokers, and support staff. Cody Douma, BIG’s Vice President asserted, “With how fast we have been growing, we are anticipating the need for an additional 40 positions at Head Office in the coming months.”
Named a Top Insurance Workplace in 2020 by Insurance Business Canada, Billyard Insurance Group’s philosophy has always been to put their people first. “Our focus is to empower employees through training, support, and technology to grow in their careers and serve our clients efficiently and effectively,” shared Stephen Billyard, the company’s president. “Creating an environment that fosters personal and professional growth is a top priority at BIG,” he added.
BIG emphasizes a holistic approach to their employees’ overall well-being, which they find produces a happier and productive workplace. During a typical day at the Welland Head Office, you will find employees hitting the BIG gym to stretch or get active, engaging in a friendly game of ping pong, sharing some laughs with a coworker, or disengaging from work in the beautiful outdoor space by the Welland Canal.
“From the moment I started at BIG, I knew this wasn’t just your average office environment,” explained Amy Legault, Marketing Content Specialist at the Welland Head Office. “Being at a growing company like BIG has a promising future; they continually provide opportunities to advance in my career and grow as a person. What I appreciate the most is the strong sense of comradery among co-workers – we work together, genuinely care for each other, and celebrate each other’s successes.”
Billyard Insurance Group has been named by IBC as a Top Insurance Brokerage in 2019, 2020, and 2021. Additionally, they were named a 5-Star Insurance Brokerage for top-notch service and expertise.
