It is clear that Covers strives to make sure all employees are involved and satisfied with their jobs, whether that be through virtual socials, mental health advocacy, or in-person conferences. Each of these initiatives are designed to improve the well-being and motivation of their employees. Covers offers virtual trivia and games to boost team morale, while in-person events bring its international community together to build personal connections. The company is excited to bring new hires to their Nova Scotia team (some for the first time!), and can’t wait to introduce them to Maritime culture. Of course, no Haligonia trip is complete without a Halifax Wanderers game!
Covers’ cross-functional squads help drive their work in an agile environment. Not to mention, their highly qualified editorial and media teams cover major sporting events through a variety of platforms best fit for their audience. For example, any and all football lovers following this NFL season need to checkout The Simple Handicap Podcast with Adam Chernoff!
