Habanero wins top spot at the Globe and Mail Great Place to Work Awards!

Habanero took first place at the Globe and Mail Best Workplace in Canada Awards held April 9 in Toronto. Habanero came in first in 2013 and last year was ranked second in the study conducted by the Great Place to Work Institute. This is the sixth year that Habanero has participated in the comprehensive study.

Habanero’s president, Steven Fitzgerald, reiterates that it’s the company’s commitment to purpose which is behind the win. “Being named the best place to work in Canada is a great external validation that we are doing some things right when it comes to living our purpose of helping people and organizations thrive,” he said.

Organizations on this year's list were ranked using the results of an employee survey and the Trust Index©, developed by global research firm Great Place to Work® Institute. This methodology is utilized by over 6,000 organizations in almost 50 countries each year, making it the most widely adopted workforce satisfaction tool in the world.

Judging is based on five themes the Institute's research indicates are found in the best workplaces: Credibility, Respect, Fairness, Pride, and Camaraderie. Habanero received special awards in the categories of Credibility and Respect. “It was no surprise that a survey so heavily weighted on employee feedback would garner Habanero recognition for the Credibility and Respect indicators,” said Habanero Vice President, Ben Skelton. “As someone who is deeply involved in business development for Habanero I know that it’s our people and how they work together and with our clients that gives us the leading edge over our competitors.”

Habanero won in the category of companies with less than 1,000 people once again sharing top spot with Google Canada which ranked first in the category of companies with more than 1,000 people.
