Canada’s Top 100 Employers again recognizes Toronto-based Points for its innovation and workplace policies
TORONTO, April 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Points (PTS.TO) (PCOM), the global leader in powering loyalty commerce, today announced that has again been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Small and Medium Employers by Canada’s Top 100 Employers at Mediacorp Canada Inc. This marks the fourth consecutive year that Points has received the honour and follows its recent recognition as one of the Best Workplaces™ Women for 2019.
Now in its 6th year, Canada's Top Small & Medium Employers is an editorial competition that recognizes the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that offer the nation's best workplaces and forward-thinking human resources policies. Employers are evaluated by the editors at Canada's Top 100 Employers using the same criteria as the Top 100 competition: Physical Workplace; Work Atmosphere & Social; Health, Financial & Family Benefits; Vacation & Time Off; Employee Communications; Performance Management; Training & Skills Development; and Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their industry to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
"At Points, we believe that building a great culture is as important as building a successful business. We are thrilled to have been included on this list once again which validates our efforts,” said Inez Murdoch, Chief People Officer at Points. "We are truly proud of what we offer our employees and will continue to go above and beyond."
Since its inception in 2000, Points has grown from a technology start-up to a global industry leader developing best-in-class loyalty technology and partnering with over 60 of the world’s largest loyalty brands. Points actively seeks to promote an innovative and engaging work atmosphere, giving employees the freedom to think big with the resources to make things happen.
“The SME competition is very much the laboratory of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project,” adds Anthony Meehan, Publisher at Mediacorp. “It’s the place where we often see new kinds of HR initiatives and workplace policies being tested – before they are adopted at larger employers. Many of this year’s winners offer the kind of benefits once found only at big companies, but they have the flexibility to go beyond these and offer unique HR initiatives for their employees.”
