Life @ Minto: A Human-Centric Workplace

Over the last few years, we have witnessed a growing desire among our employees for recognition, an acknowledgment of their needs, and a deeper connection at the human level. As an employer, this resonates deeply with us, fueling our commitment to foster a workplace that is not just about tasks but about individuals—heartfelt and purpose-driven. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that Minto has received Workhuman Certification—an honour which distinguishes companies committed to providing an environment where all humans are valued and thrive.

What is a human-centric workplace, exactly? It’s one that revolves around its people and considers their specific needs. By adopting a human-centric approach, we are committing to crafting our workplace intentionally around the desires of our employees.
