For Immediate Release: Tuesday, September 10th, 2019
Collabware is proud to announce that it has been named on the 2019 list of Best Workplaces™ in Technology. Collabware received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®. This Technology badge adds to the roster of other Great Places to Work awards received including the Great Places to Work 2019 annual certification and Great Places to Work for Mental Wellness.
Collabware not only provides Intelligent ECM solutions and services but focuses on end user satisfaction and the team that develops and maintains the software. Beyond working in a beautiful space in downtown Vancouver, employees receive top tier benefits, work flexibility, and open communication culture where their input and ideas matter.
“At Collabware, we’re all about thinking big and making it happen - we’re lucky to have a team that do that every single day,” says Graham Sibley, CEO of Collabware. "It’s important to have a work environment where every individual feels valued and equipped with the tools they need to do their best work."
"Along with a high level of employee autonomy and growth opportunity, we offer 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," Sibley adds. "We also always encourage new ideas and approaches. For example, we support creativity with our Quarterly Innovation Days where staff are given time to research, develop, and present any ideas they may have.”
Collabware believes that work and play are not mutually exclusive. Some perks include free weekly lunches, team celebrations, volunteer opportunities, social events, and unlimited vacation time.
“We recognize the value of employees taking the time and space they need away from the office; so, we’ve implemented a mandatory vacation policy to encourage employees to take well-deserved breaks,” says Anastasia Hunter, SVP of Operations. “All employees must take a minimum 15 days paid time off each year, and there is no set maximum limit. We want to empower our employees to be their best self, both at work and at home. So we’re big on promoting a harmonious balance between their lives inside and outside of the office.”
