KPMG in Canada is offering an Indigenous wellness benefit as part of its Truth and Reconciliation action plan.
The wellness benefit, which will be available in December, provides employees with access to an annual allowance that will reimburse expenses related to Indigenous healers and elders, traditional medicine and Indigenous ceremony supplies.
“We felt strongly that we had a role to play as a business in advancing truth and reconciliation aligned to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action, specifically No. 92 for businesses,” says Stephanie Braid, director of inclusion, diversity and equity at KPMG in Canada. “Creating this plan was about accelerating change and holding ourselves accountable. I think businesses at this stage have a lot of power in terms of hiring, creating prosperity and building trusted relationships with people in Indigenous communities.”
