TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 17, 2014) - Wishabi, a leading technology company whose digital flyer platform is used by top retailers across North America, today announced that they have won this year's Best Workplaces in Canada. The company also won a special award for Camaraderie. This list, and related stories, will appear in a special national report on Thursday April 17th, 2014 in The Globe and Mail.
When surveyed, 95% of Wishabi employees said that they feel the company is a great place to work overall. Also, 100% of employees voted that Wishabi is a fun and friendly place to work where people care about each other which resulted in the Camaraderie award win.
Wishabi's culture is an integral part of what has driven the company's success to date. The organization's unique high-trust culture is based on a holistic combination of personal and professional attributes from high performance and intelligence to family values and community involvement. In addition to Wishabi's valued reward and recognition program which includes robust benefits and perks, it is the company's coaching and mentorship approach that gives team members an accelerated growth path.
Wishabi has been exponentially growing over the past three years adding retailers such Walmart, Target, Home Depot and Macy's who can be found on the Wishabi platform. To keep pace with this growth, the company has increased its employee base over 120% year-over-year. To continue to fast-track the company's recruiting efforts, Wishabi has created a $10k Developer Referral Program which allows anyone to suggest an outstanding developer to join the team.
"It is a great honour that Wishabi has been recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada and also has received a special call out for our camaraderie. These awards are a true reflection of the passion our team members have for each other and the success of our company," said Wehuns Tan, CEO and Co-Founder of Wishabi Inc. "We look forward to further investing in our team members by doubling down on growth and mentorship opportunities. It is this culture that makes Wishabi a world-class company who will continue to lead the industry."
"Great Place to Work® Institute would like to recognize and congratulate Wishabi Inc. for its success in creating a great workplace culture. Wishabi Inc. was ranked on our 2014 list because employees told us they trust management, have pride in their jobs, and enjoy the people they work with," said Jose Tolovi Neto, Managing Partner at Great Place to Work® Canada.
This list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a 58-statement survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. 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 the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
This year's list received over 300 nominations and over 60,000 employees participated in the 2014 "Best Workplaces in Canada" survey.
