They may be young companies still growing their workforces but Canadian tech startups Polar Mobile and TribeHR have already won kudos for efforts to engage their employees.
Both firms have made this year's list of the 50 most engaged workplaces in Canada, compiled annually by the American organization Achievers. (The group also releases an annual list of the 50 most engaged U.S. workplaces.)
The winning firms are listed alphabetically rather than ranked. Some of the other tech related companies on the Canadian list include Rogers Communications Inc. (for its customer support branch specifically), Siemens Canada, TeraGo Networks Inc., PEER 1 Hosting and NetSuite Canada Inc.
Polar Mobile, led by CEO Kunal Gupta (above), has been named one of Canada's 50 most engaged workplaces.
According to the Achievers Web site, companies on the list must possess the following attributes (or provide the following opportunities to their workers) in order to be honoured: leadership, communication, culture, rewards and recognition, professional and personal growth, accountability and performance, vision and values, and corporate and social responsibility.
