Stratford Client Kinaxis makes 2022 list of Canada’s Top 100 Employers

Congratulations to Stratford client, Kinaxis for making the 2022 list of Canada’s 100 Top Employers! Sponsored by and published in a special edition of the Globe & Mail, the annual competition looks at public and private companies of all sizes who’s head office or principal place of business in Canada.

Companies are evaluated based on the same eight criteria used since the inaugural list: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.

Among their reasons for selecting Kinaxis, the committee stated:

  • Over the past year, Kinaxis doubled the amount of its counselling benefit and ensured that employees had access to mental health training — additionally, the company hosted at-home exercise challenges to encourage employees to stay fit and maintains an in-house Kinaction program for health and wellness programming
  • Kinaxis offers a variety of financial incentives, including a share purchase plan (available to all employees), signing bonuses for some, year-end bonuses for all and generous referral bonuses for employees who recruit candidates from their personal networks (up to $2,500)
  • Along with considering previous work experience for new employees, Kinaxis offers a no-limit paid vacation policy for new and existing employees — and provides additional time off during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays

This year’s award adds to the growing list of accolades that Kinaxis has received for its dedication to their employees.
