GlobalVision Chosen as One of Canada’s Best Places to Work

Date: April, 2023 | CategoryCompany Author: Hana Trokic

GlobalVision is not a great place to work anymore. 

Our market-leading proofreading software company was previously certified by Great Place to Work. In 2022, we received the certification as a testament to our dedication to creating a positive and fulfilling work environment for our employees.

This year, however, is a little different. 

In recent years, GlobalVision has made extensive efforts to make our organization an amazing place to work and our efforts have not gone unnoticed. In addition to gaining the Great Place to Work certification, this year, we are extremely proud to announce that we won the Best Workplaces in Canada for 2023 award. More specifically we received the 2023 award for the Best Workplace in Canada for the 50-99 Employees category.

The Global Authority on Workplace Culture

The Great Place to Work certification recognizes companies that have gone above and beyond to create an outstanding work environment. It works by surveying employees about their experiences and the environment they find themselves in Mondays to Fridays. 

The certification is a two-step process that includes a survey as well as a short questionnaire about work culture. Survey results are completely based on employee feedback about their organization. Results also offer valuable insights to potential job seekers about a company’s work culture and its efforts to keep employees motivated and happy. Results of this year’s certification have also been received extremely well, with even the Globe and Mail advertising the 2023 list of lucky winners. 

GlobalVision employees participated in the Great Place to Work survey in November 2022 and met the Trust Index score to secure certification for 2023! The Trust Index is designed to measure employees’ perception of the quality of their workplace relationships which includes their relationship with their peers, their job tasks, and with management. 

This year, GlobalVision received a Trust Index Score of 92%, increasing from 88% in the 2021 survey – a true testament to our company’s continuous efforts to keep employees satisfied.

Best Workplaces Start With Happy Employees

Over the past years, GlobalVision has made significant progress in establishing a top-tier remote-first company culture that prioritizes the well-being of its employees. The many initiatives put into place to increase employee satisfaction have proven to be extremely successful; the proof being in how employees feel about their day-to-day on the job.  

The Great Place to Work questionnaire gives critical insights for employers and employees alike, giving each an overview of the major advantages of an organization. For GlobalVision, employee responses reflect an overwhelming appreciation for flexibility, asynchronous and remote-first work, self-managed time off, and amazing work-life balance. In other words, a great company culture. 

According to a majority of GlobalVision employees, a high point of company culture was the remote-first, self-managed work and time-off policy. Employees feel that the flexibility they are given to create their own hours and schedules shows that they are trusted, that their skills and capabilities do not go unnoticed, and that micromanagement is not needed in order to complete tasks. 

There is no “one-size fits all” work process that GlobalVision employees need to follow, instead, they are free to work however and wherever they please through independent, asynchronous work. Employees feel that this leads to autonomy over their work and the ability to have a great work-life balance which is reflected in the high productivity and performance of every individual at GlobalVision. 

What’s more, the survey found that not only do employees feel a sense of pride and accomplishment in their work, but they also feel empowered to be innovative, driven, and ambitious. It helps that the open work environment allows for seamless teamwork with talented, passionate colleagues who are always readily available to help and collaborate on daily tasks. 

Yet, what sets GlobalVision apart from other remote-first, tech companies is not the endless benefits that it offers its employees. Many companies boast a long list of benefits while still struggling to find and retain top talent. What truly sets GlobalVision apart is that the entire company, from top to bottom, lives and breathes its company culture and values. 

At GlobalVision, it’s not about listing company values and benefits, it’s about actually implementing them for the overall development and well-being of each and every employee. 

Extensive efforts are constantly being put into place to ensure the benefits and freedoms given to employees remain true. From complete transparency to constant, open communication and feedback, employees notice all the genuine efforts being made to keep them happy. A winning combination for company and employee success.

Continued Efforts to be Great 

GlobalVision’s certification as a best place to work in Canada is a positive development for the company and its employees and an affirmation that a remote-first, asynchronous company culture works. It is also a recognition of the company’s commitment to excellence and its ongoing efforts to create a workplace culture that supports and empowers its employees.

As the world continues to navigate the challenges posed by market changes and uncertainties, it’s more important than ever for companies to prioritize the well-being of their employees. GlobalVision’s certification as a Great Place to Work and a Best Workplace in Canada is a testament to our company’s commitment to creating a positive and fulfilling work environment and is a model for other companies to follow.

Here’s to continuing to grow an amazing workplace culture and to one of many Best Workplace certifications!
