A people-first culture keeps employees engaged and high-performing
VANCOUVER, April 25, 2017 /CNW/ - Clio, the leader in cloud-based legal practice management software, was recognized today as one of Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers by Mediacorp. Boasting an award-winning workspace in Vancouver, and satellite offices in Toronto and Dublin, Clio has embraced a human yet high-performing work culture that's helped it become one of the fastest growing companies in Canada.
"The defining features of employers on this year's list is their flexibility to adapt quickly to changing conditions and the ease with which they can make improvements," says Richard Yerema, Managing Editor of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp. "Since the competition was founded, we've observed that the leading SMEs have steadily expanded their benefits and HR initiatives—they offer job-seekers an attractive employment proposition combined with a dynamic and fun work environment."
"At Clio, we've known from day one that we wanted to work with amazing and talented people, and we've been fully prepared to do whatever it takes to find, attract and retain those people," said Jack Newton, Co-Founder and CEO at Clio.
Today's workforce expects more than a great working environment and comfortable amenities. Clio has worked to create more meaningful benefits—such as ongoing professional development, customizable career paths with mentorship and support, and flexible working options—that can be tailored to the needs of individual employees.
"The opportunities for growth at Clio keep our people engaged," said Rian Gauvreau, Co-founder and Chief People Officer at Clio. "The success of our staff is ultimately the success of the company, so finding ways to challenge and develop our people—by opening space for new roles, letting them pursue their own ideas, and giving them access to the mentorship and resources they need—it keeps us growing together."
This award adds to the impressive list of awards Clio has been proud to accept this past year including Techvibes Employer of the Year at the Canadian Startup Awards, and one of Canada's 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures in 2016. Clio was also listed as one of Deloitte's Technology Fast 50™ for the third consecutive year in 2016.
Now in its fourth year, Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers recognizes the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that offer the nation's best workplaces and forward-thinking human resources policies.
