But if you still need convincing, here’s what our employees have to say: “As a recent university graduate, I quickly realized that the best way to get acquainted with my colleagues throughout the organization was to get involved in corporate life through various AEGON committees. However, I had not anticipated that in joining those committees, I would be the beneficiary of a transformational personal development and professional growth opportunity. As a committee member, I learned and gained a wealth of experience from working alongside AEGON’s senior management and from liaising with the CEOs of large external organizations. To me, AEGON Canada is synonymous with truly offering its employees the opportunity to explore and realize their potential.” - Entry-Level Accountant, Financial & Business Analysis “Working for AEGON Canada has afforded me many great opportunities to develop my career and broaden my knowledge of insurance and investment products.
