TORONTO – April 15, 2021 – Smooth Commerce today announced that the company is ranked 50th on the 2021 list of the Best Workplaces™ in Canada. This list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute.
“While this past year has been incredibly challenging for the restaurant sector, our team has gone above and beyond to deliver our platform and services to the tremendous benefit of our customers,” said Brian Deck, CEO of Smooth Commerce. “It’s humbling and gratifying to be recognized among Canada’s Best Workplaces, especially in a year where we’ve asked so much of our growing team as we’ve helped our customers through the pandemic.”
Smooth Commerce has prioritized fostering a collaborative and empowering workplace culture as the company has grown. Diversity, professional development, team building, and sharing in collective success though an employee stock option program are key areas of focus. Over the last year, the company’s culture committee has developed creative ways to keep employees connected while navigating the challenging transition to work from home.
“The dedication and resilience of our employees has been critical to our success, and we will never waver from our commitment to an enjoyable and rewarding workplace with ample opportunities for growth,” added Deck.
The Best Workplaces in Canada list is employee driven and based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results; and the remaining one-third 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. This year’s list captured the experience and sentiment of over 82,000 employees, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees.
