MONTRÉAL, Nov. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DAVIDsTEA Inc. (Nasdaq:DTEA), a leading tea merchant in North America, is pleased to announce that it has been certified as a Great Place to Work® after a thorough, independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work Institute® Canada.
Based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about their workplace experience, The Great Place to Work® certification is testament to DAVIDsTEA’s commitment to its employees. Focusing on wellbeing and mental health through their competitive wellness program, and providing sick, personal, and volunteer days to its teams, the company believes the honour is well-deserved.

"Our data shows that great workplaces benefit from stronger financial performance, reduced turnover, and better customer satisfaction than their peers. What's more, work environments with trust at the foundation are ripe for innovation, agility, resilience and efficiency," Fonseca said.
