This provides confidential services including counseling and advice on a variety of personal issues. | Vacation and other time-off benefits: In addition to vacation and other time off, above average Personal Emergency Leave time is provided when you are not able to work or when a loved one is suffering from illness or injury. | Competitive Compensation & Benefits: Apart from offering competitive salaries, eligible team members enjoy group RRSP/DPSP matching and fiscal year bonus programs. | Work Life Balance: Do you have to make an appointment? Do you have to go pick up a sick child? Bennington provides their team members with the ability to balance life. | Education assistance: Bennington provides an Education Assistance Program which offers reimbursement of tuition fees to encourage eligible team members to update their education and/or skills by enrolling in part time studies at recognized colleges or university. |

GIVING BACK

At Bennington, we believe in giving back to our communities. From pulling planes to riding big bikes, we love a challenge and we fundraise our hearts out to get there!

That plane was heavy! | Bottom, right | All aboard! Thirty Bennington team members are packed on to a giant red bike, smiling and waving to the camera.
