SaaS platform company secures spot on coveted list at #26
April 27, 2022 (Saskatoon, CANADA) – Vendasta is thrilled to announce its inclusion on the 2022 list of Best Workplaces™ in Canada. The Saskatoon-headquartered company scored a spot among organizations with between 100-999 employees at #26.
The list is compiled by Great Places to Work®, an independent researcher that recognizes the world’s best workplaces. The national list, and related stories, will appear in a special national report in the Globe and Mail on Apr. 29.
The list of 50 companies represents multiple industries and sizes of organizations. Seventy-five percent of each organization’s score is based on confidential employee feedback, from the globally recognized Trust Index® Survey. The remaining 25 percent is based on quality, quantity, and effectiveness of the programs and policies which support their employees and corporate culture.
The study offers a rigorous representation of an 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.
Since its inception in 2008, Vendasta has grown to more than 600 employees working from Saskatoon, Toronto, India, and across the United States. The company boasts a competitive benefits package, employee assistance program, health and wellness programs, as well as several workplace perks such as flexible work schedules, a chef-run cafe with subsidized and free food, various community corporate deals, as well as parking, bicycle, or public transit reimbursement.
“This is such an exciting milestone for all Vendastians because it’s an outcome of employee feedback,” said VP of People Operations Jean Parchewsky. “Knowing the team is passionate about our company and the work they do showcases the commitment we have made to our team into building and supporting an exceptional employee experience.”
“Nearly 90 percent of our employees said that this is a ‘fun place to work’. We’re working hard to build something and having fun doing it,” she said. “What more could we ask for?”
