Peninsula expands global footprint

Peninsula, the UK’s leading provider of employment law, HR and health & safety services have expanded their operations to Canada.

The new office located in Toronto will focus on providing professional support to Canada’s small and fast-growing businesses across employment law, HR and health and safety.

Approaching its 35th year of business, Peninsula also has global operations in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. Growth has been particularly rapid at their Australian operation; when it opened in 2012 the business had only six employees and 100 clients: today, this fast-growing business boasts nearly 1,000 employees and 15,000 clients. Peninsula currently employs over 1,000 people in the UK and 2,500 worldwide. More than 75,000 clients globally use its services.

Peninsula Group Managing Director and Founder, Peter Done, said: “The business landscape is becomingly increasingly more global so we are delighted to be expanding our services to Canada.”

“Toronto is the perfect location for our Canadian operation as it reflects our philosophy as a business in terms of innovation, creativity and entrepreneurialism.”

“At Peninsula, our main aim is to provide the very best support for our clients. That is what drives us and keeps the business succeeding, expanding and taking on new challenges both in the UK and globally."
