For Immediate Release: February 11, 2021
2020 proved that an office environment is not a necessity to be a great workplace. While we're looking forward to reuniting here during healthier times, we've remained connected and grown our wonderful team from the safety of our homes! See our Careers page to join us.Collabware will be recognized as one of this year’s Best Workplaces™ in Canada, and the rank on this list will be announced the week of April 13th, 2021. This list, and related stories, will appear in a Special National Report on Friday April 16, 2021 in The Globe and Mail.
This is an exciting update, since Collabware always works to be the very best (currently virtual!) workplace it can be for every team member.
“Collabware would not be able to provide its Intelligent ECM solutions and services without an incredible team behind the software. It’s important to us that every individual feel valued and equipped with the tools they need to do their best work," says Collabware CEO, Graham Sibley. "Beyond ensuring everyone is fully supported to work safely from home, employees also receive top tier benefits, work flexibility, and an open communication culture where their input and ideas matter.”
Along with a high level of employee autonomy and growth opportunity, Collabware holds company-wide weekly virtual 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. Virtual methods have been created 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. Game nights, "Show 'n' Tell" and happy hours are just few ways Collabware keeps the close-knit team feeling connected.
The 2021 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute. The competition process to be ranked on this list is employee driven, based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results and the remaining one-third from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to five trust-building dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
Collabware brings calm to information chaos with intelligent information management and collaboration software designed to make teams more productive, protect high-value information, and help organizations rapidly locate the information they need to make better decisions. With offices in Canada, USA and the UK, our software has been internationally deployed by companies in regulated industries, including: finance & insurance; mining & natural resources; government; healthcare; manufacturing, utilities, transportation, entertainment and education.
