Empowering Women

Empowering Women

At the TMX Finance® Family of Companies, we’ve always been committed to establishing equality to help ensure a level playing field for the growth and development of all Team Members. In 2019, we took this to the next level as we piloted a peer group program aimed at empowering our Corporate Team Members to reach their full potential with the support and mentoring of those around them. This was called Empower Women Peer Groups. The primary goal of the program was to create an inclusive, safe space for Team Members to discuss and resolve issues that are perceived as standing …

Relationships That Work

Relationships That Work

If you’ve ever taken an employee engagement survey, you’ve probably come across the question, “Do you have a best friend at work?” There’s a reason why this often-controversial question has remained on surveys for years and it has to do with performance. According to Gallup, there is a “concrete link between having a best friend at work and the amount of effort employees expend in their job.” That could explain why, beyond having a personal consultant to talk to when making career decisions, we tend to be more competitive, engaged, and productive when we have a best friend around the …

Take A Risk, Crush A Goal

Take A Risk, Crush A Goal

“A friend can inspire enthusiasm as well as accountability, and that serves to challenge you.” Deanna Cosso; Romuald Andrade As we set goals for 2020, we wanted to reflect on the accomplishments of 2019. Last year, we found common ground in the fitness goals we had each set for ourselves. When we heard of a new workout studio opening near our office, we took the challenge to try something new. We learned that having an accountability partner made the difference in reaching our goals. Here is our story: “Last year, I had enough with being out of shape, having low …

Work Hard, Play Hard.

Work Hard, Play Hard.

“Work hard, play hard,” is a mantra I live by. And to be honest, it’s a lesson I was taught at a very young age. My mom was a single mom, raising me alone on a school teacher’s salary. However, that never stopped her from having a multitude of hobbies nor did it stop us from traveling often. My mom made several sacrifices so that she could enjoy other parts of her life. For example, we always had season passes to the local ski resort, a cleaning service, and a health membership at the local gym. But my mom often …

Balancing a Healthy Lifestyle

Balancing a Healthy Lifestyle

I’ve always been the kind of person who avoids exercise at all costs. Back in high school, I’d choose the weightlifting option in gym class while everyone else went to play indoor soccer. This decision was partially motivated by the fact that I could sit on the leg press machine for forty minutes doing absolutely nothing, and partially to avoid an inevitable indoor soccer injury (usually in the form of a broken nose). As I got older, it became much easier to avoid working out because of all the new excuses that adulthood brought to the table. I was always …

4 Steps to Igniting Your Career Love

4 Steps to Igniting Your Career Love

February is the month of love. A time where we show gratitude and extra attention to our loved ones, our spouses, and our families. It can also be a great time to show your career some love, too! Our careers can be considered a huge part of how we define ourselves. We love to show our gratitude to others, but it’s important we celebrate our careers, as well! Just over a year ago, I started my career with TMX Finance® Family of Companies. It was a scary transition because I thought I truly loved my previous position and company. I …

TMX Finance® Family of Companies Safety Program

TMX Finance® Family of Companies Safety Program

I’ve been with the Company for 4 ½ years now. I’ve had various roles in that time, but the one constant area of responsibility I’ve maintained throughout my tenure has been oversight of workers’ compensation and other lines of insurance held by the Company. The first reactions most people have when discussing insurance are that the subject is dry and boring. And, yes, I admit, there are elements of working with insurance claims that are indeed dry and boring. The prospect of keeping up multiple spreadsheets containing an endless stream of formulas, percentages, and other numbers-based data can drive a …

Invitation to Speak on a Panel

Invitation to Speak on a Panel

I recently had the honor to speak on a panel about one of my most passionate topics these days…MENTORING! MentorcliQ hosted a conference called, MentorCom in Ohio. When the invitation came along in early May, I was very excited to be asked to speak on the panel and to share our mentoring journey with other attendees. As the months and days inched closer, my nerves began to set in. This was my first opportunity to do something at this level, yes of course, I love to talk and present to our own team members, but to speak at this capacity …

Team Win! Taking Applicant Tracking to the Next Level

Team Win! Taking Applicant Tracking to the Next Level

So, they say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Try telling that to the Talent Acquisition Team at the TMX Finance® Family of Companies! May has been a BIG month. After 8 years of using the same Applicant Tracking System (“ATS” if you are tech savvy), we have completely switched to operating in a new one, the CareerBuilder ATS. This is no small feat all around and has taken 5 months and countless hours to accomplish. But, our recruiters are truly best in class in every way, and during the month of April they seamlessly switched from using …
