SNF Wins Mississauga Board of Trade Award: Employer of the Year


It is a well-known business principle that happy teams are more productive and therefore more profitable (see a recent Harvard Business Review article on this point here.) Speigel Nichols Fox LLP has always understood this and worked hard to keep its team positive and engaged.

We’re therefore thrilled that the Mississauga Board of Trade has recognized Speigel Nichols Fox LLP as this year’s recipient of the Employer of the Year Award at the November 2015 Business Award of Excellence Gala.

According to the Mississauga Board of Trade:

The Employer of the Year Award is awarded to a business in Mississauga that has consistently demonstrated exceptional commitment to engage, retain and develop employees. This organization creates a positive, fair and supportive environment for all employees.

The sold out award ceremony was a glitzy affair with Master of Ceremony Anwar Knight delivering laughs all night “someone cue the Benny Hill theme.”

Partner, Irving Fox took to the stage with Rose Avarino to accept the award and reminded the attendees that we are all privileged to be doing business in the City of Mississauga. He gave full credit for the award to Rose Avarino, a 17-year SNF veteran, whose drive to promote SNF’s attributes was an important factor in SNF’s award.

He further recognised the importance of the SNF team, as a whole, and reminded the audience that a business is only as good as its parts and that a positive team mentality is crucial to the success of any business.
