Independent company credits hyper growth trajectory with unique approach to business and people-centric corporate culture
TORONTO, ON – September 14, 2017 – Celebrating 20 years in business, Klick Inc. continued its move up the annual PROFIT 500 ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies by Canadian Business with a five-year growth rate of 592% – rare for an organization entering its third decade of operation.
Klick’s position (#117) on this year’s list marks the 13th time it has been recognized as one of the country’s most successful growth companies. It also highlights the hyper growth company’s consistent growth trajectory. Last year, Klick was ranked #152 on the PROFT 500 and #189 in 2015. The year’s ranking is published in the October issue of Maclean’s magazine and online at CanadianBusiness.com.
Klick Co-Founder and CEO Leerom Segal said, “As proud and grateful as we are to be recognized on the 2017 PROFIT 500, we’re even more proud and grateful to our over 700 Klicksters who go the extra mile to help advance our clients and our culture. They play an important role in inoculating Klick against the status quo as we continue to embrace new opportunities for healthy change.”
“It is never easy to earn a spot on the PROFIT 500, but this year’s applicant pool was the most competitive yet,” said Deborah Aarts, PROFIT 500 program manager. “This year’s winners demonstrate the resilience, innovation, and sheer management smarts it takes to build a thriving business today. Canada – and the world – needs more entrepreneurial success stories like these.”
Beyond being known as for its hyper growth and success in the marketplace, Klick also has an outstanding reputation amongst team members for being a highly rated place to work with its unique people-centric culture and commitment to diversity and inclusion.
In June, the company was lauded by The Globe and Mail for having one of the nation’s most healthy, engaged, and productive workforces and was recognized with the Employee Recommended Workplace Award in the Large Employer – Private Company category. Earlier in the year, Klick was also named a Great Place to Work and Best Workplace for Women, both of which also use extensive employee surveys to help determine company rankings.
