Points Named As One of Greater Toronto’s Top 2019 Employers
Canada’s Top 100 Employers Recognizes Points For Third Consecutive Year
TORONTO, Dec. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Points (TSX:PTS) (Nasdaq:PCOM), the global leader in powering loyalty commerce, today announced that it has again been named one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers at Mediacorp Canada Inc. This marks the third consecutive year that Points has received the honour.
Now in its 13th year, the Greater Toronto’s Top Employers competition is an editorial project that recognizes employers with exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. The annual competition is open to any employer with its head office in the Greater Toronto Area, and employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector.
“We are honored to have been named one of GTA’s Top Employers again this year,” said Rob MacLean, CEO of Points. “This recognition truly validates what we already know about our culture and employer brand, of which we are extremely proud of. Receiving such an accolade helps us to attract and retain the very best and brightest talent in a highly competitive market.”
“If you’re an employee who works in technology, you have a wide range of employers and industries here that need your talent,” says Richard Yerema, Managing Editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp. “With so many head offices here, GTA employers are starting to realize that their competition for top talent also includes employers well outside their industry. This is something new for most organizations.”
Since its founding in 2000, Points has remained steadfast in fostering a vibrant, people-centric culture and upholding its entrepreneurial spirit. In addition to competitive compensation, benefits, and stock options, Points employees enjoy perks like flexible work hours, a casual office environment, subsidized lunches, tuition reimbursement, sponsored social events and weekly snack carts. In 2015, Points For Good was launched to weave charitable commitment into the fabric of Points’ culture by supporting local and global organizations and championing employee-led philanthropy.
The full list of this year’s winners was announced in a special magazine published in The Globe and Mail this morning. The editors’ detailed reasons for selection were also published today and are accessible via the competition homepage.
