Morale is crucial to success. We all need to connect on something, to be part of a movement. Purpose unites and connects us. That’s why Purpose@Work is so important and timely for Oxford and OMERS.

My board work outside of OMERS, focused on leveling barriers to justice in Canada particularly for Indigenous youth, is important to me. I’m pleased that Purpose@Work aligns and encourages this important work.
Jennifer Guerard, Senior Managing Director and Head of Legal, OMERS Infrastructure
I’m excited that Purpose@Work will unite us as a global company. It will allow us to focus on global initiatives while also encouraging us to support local, grassroots organizations. We have been blessed in so many ways – why not give it back to the society.
