Points Ranked as One of Canada’s Top 10 Employers for 2021
We were honoured to be included for the seventh consecutive year on Canada’s list of Best Workplaces™ and to have achieved a Top 10 ranking for 2021. It is also the sixth time that we were included on the list of Best Workplaces™ for Women in Canada.
Presented by the Great Place to Work® Institute, the award identifies organizations that foster exceptional work environments and cultures that promote the growth and development of their team members.
As a loyalty technology company that partners with some of the most well-known brands within the travel industry, 2020 was one of the most challenging in our 21-year history to date. We made a number of enhancements to assist our employees as they transitioned to a new work environment. Along with our ongoing commitment to offering substantial resources to support employee health and wellbeing such as the $3,000 annual mental health benefit, we also transformed our annual green commuter benefit into a work from home credit and increased the ways the fitness credit could be used to include at-home workout opportunities. To acknowledge the pace and intensity of balancing at home responsibilities with remote working, we also blocked off calendars with ‘no meeting zones’ at noon and Friday afternoons. In addition, we added opportunities for employees to stay connected and socialize; such as regular zoom mixers on Fridays where themes ranged from scavenger hunts to Jeopardy-style challenges.
We have been so impressed by the pride and engagement of our employees as we have navigated this period of extreme change together and our culture has remained steadfast during this extended period of remote working.
