For Release: Thursday April 28th, 2022
Collabware has been recognized as one of this year’s Best Workplaces™ in Canada, and ranked #21 for Companies under 50 People!! This list, and related stories, appears in a Special National Report in The Globe and Mail.
Collabware would not be where it is (providing intelligent cloud platforms and services) without an epic team behind it all, so it's paramount that every individual feels valued and equipped with the tools they need to do their best work. Whether that is coming into the beautiful downtown Vancouver office or working remotely from home, employees have autonomy plus a 1K benefit to cover transportation or tech work equipment (amongst other top tier benefits and stock options). Unlimited vacation time is not only available but encouraged to use for proper work/life balance and rest.
Communication is key, with space for all voices. Collabware holds company-wide weekly meetings and monthly town halls so all stay informed on what’s happening and how they’re making an impact within the organization. New ideas and approaches are also always encouraged. Both virtual and now in-person (yay!) events occur to maintain the fun social environment by allowing staff to step back from work and get creative, interactive and learn more about other staff members.
We're honoured to receive this certification, which is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about their workplace experience.
Nancy Fonseca, Senior Vice President of Great Place to Work® Canada, says that a great workplace is about the level of trust that employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs, and the extent to which they enjoy their colleagues. "Our data shows that great workplaces benefit from stronger financial performance, reduced turnover, and better customer satisfaction than their peers. What's more, work environments with trust at the foundation are ripe for innovation, agility, resilience and efficiency," Fonseca said.
