Press Release: GroupeX Solutions recognized as a Best Workplace 2019
For Release: April 26, 2019
GroupeX Solutions is being recognized as one of this year’s Best Workplaces™ in Canada. This list, and related stories, will appear in a Special National Report on Friday April 26, 2019 in The Globe and Mail.
As an organization that specializes in Human Resources, GroupeX knows that learning and skills management, internal development of future leaders, and connection with our remote workforce are key attributes to maintaining engaged, long-term employees.
We do everything we can to foster a work culture where employees are challenged, supported, and even entertained, at all times. Some of the cool things we do include:
- Walk the walk when it comes to work/life balance
- Support remote work, which is proven to increase productivity
- Encourage a culture of being professional, but human (i.e. Our CEOs wear jeans to the office…sometimes.)
- Develop our leaders, both internally and cross-functionally
- Provide our own internal training and support external learning opportunities
- Participate in global virtual challenges, office fundraisers for charity, community volunteer activities, and social gatherings to bring employees together on a regular basis
“This marks a true career milestone for me. GroupeX is a place where people are happy to work and is receiving national recognition for it,” says Theo Smith, Founder and Co-CEO. “When I started this company, I envisioned great minds coming together to form this ‘group of experts.’ At the time, I didn’t anticipate all the great personalities and friendships that have come along with it. And we have managed to maintain that closeness over the years – that sense of family – despite dramatic growth and a largely remote workforce.”
The 2019 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.
This year’s list received over 400 registrations and over 80,000 employees participated in the 2019 “Best Workplaces™ in Canada” survey, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees.
