Culture

Admiral prides itself on its award winning culture. We offer a relaxed, friendly and fun work environment. We even have our own 'Ministry of Fun'. The Ministry of Fun is shared by all our employees and rotates from team to team organizing events to make Admiral an enjoyable place to work. Admiral believes people who enjoy what they do, do it well, and this will be reflected in the way employees deliver first rate service to our customers.

Happy staff will create happy customers, happy customers will increase profit and increased profit will make happy stakeholders. Happy stakeholders will be committed to growing the business. As all our employees are awarded free shares in Admiral, it means we are all stakeholders and share in the company’s success.

The idea that each employee has an integral part to play in Admiral's success is a key message in the welcome chats of our CEO Henry Englehardt. He makes it a priority to meet each and every new employee and hand deliver a puzzle piece. Henry is passionate about the company's philosophy that the bigger picture can only be realized when we all pull together.

Henry also firmly believes in managers being available to all employees. With our overseas expansion, Henry makes a point of visiting the Canadian office each year where he personally meets with and welcomes our newest employees.

Admiral has been listed for the last nine years in the Sunday Times as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For, and for the last seven years in the Financial Times list of 50 Best Workplaces in the UK and 100 Best Workplaces in the EU. In Halifax we have been recognized as one of Canada's Great Workplaces every year since 2010, and Atlantic Canada and Nova Scotia's Top Employer in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. We have also placed on the Best Places to Work (Progress) every year since 2010 as well.
