TORONTO, April 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Points (TSX:PTS) (Nasdaq:PCOM), the global leader in powering loyalty commerce, has been ranked 17th on this year’s Best Workplaces™ in Canada list by Great Place to Work® Institute. This marks the sixth consecutive year that Points has received the honour. Presented by Great Place to Work® Institute, the award identifies organizations that foster exceptional work environments and cultures that value the growth and development of their team members.
“We are extremely proud of this recognition. Points’ five core values are Integrity, Innovation, Passion, Caring, and Collaboration. During this challenging time, we have been amazed by the unwavering dedication of our employees to display these values,” said Inez Murdoch, Chief People Officer at Points. “Everyone’s willingness to support each other and our partners is what creates our thriving culture at Points. We are delighted to be recognised as a great place to work, especially as we celebrate our 20th anniversary this year.”
The 2020 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results and the remaining one-third comes 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.
In addition to fostering a vibrant and people-centric workplace, Points offers competitive benefits like flexible work-hours, maternity and parental support, fitness and commuter reimbursement programs and career development opportunities.
This year’s list received over 400 registrations and over 80,000 employees participated in the 2020 “Best Workplaces™ in Canada” survey, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees.
