Our goal is to attract and keep the best people in the industry by empowering our employees to do the right thing for one another and for our customers. We provide an environment where individual contribution is rewarded and teamwork is encouraged, where objectives are clearly defined and where our core values are always front and centre.

Competitive total compensation

We call our compensation strategy "total rewards" because it takes into account your needs and those of your family. It's one of the important ways we support Sun Life's high-performance culture. We have a variety of competitive programs that let you choose the options that best fit your personal circumstances.

We provide:

  • A competitive salary and incentives package, including an annual  bonus program that recognizes stronger performances with higher rewards.
  • A flexible benefits program where you can choose the benefits and levels of coverage that are right for you and your family.
  • Pension, stock and savings programs to help build your savings and enhance your future financial security.
  • Fitness and wellness programs that help you balance work and life, manage your health and live a healthy lifestyle.
  • Flexible work arrangements.

Individual professional development

When you succeed, we succeed. So we'll make sure you have the information, resources and support you need to develop your professional and business skills – and advance your career goals.


We provide the resources and opportunities to help our people progress in their chosen fields, including:

  • Hands-on training and cross-functional project opportunities.
  • An education fund and eLearning programs.
  • The chance to gain international experience.

Clearly defined expectations

We have ambitious corporate objectives and a clearly defined strategy to achieve them. We believe that everyone in the company needs to know what their role is – what's expected, when and why.

We'll make sure you have a clear picture of what success in your job looks like. You'll receive regular performance reviews, so you know how you're progressing. And we'll reward you for achieving results.
