Company recognized for culture of caring and broad-based philanthropic support
TORONTO, ON/NEW YORK, NY – April 9, 2019 – Klick was today recognized on the 2019 List of Best Workplaces™ for Giving Back after thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®.
“We are very proud to be named a Best Workplace for Giving Back because it really underscores Klick’s culture of caring and desire to make a difference in the lives of others through conscious acts of giving,” said Klick President Lori Grant. “It also serves as a testament to so many Klicksters who have passionately and creatively championed our philanthropic efforts and we couldn’t be more grateful.”
Today’s announcement comes six months after Metroland Media named Klick an ‘Urban Hero’ for giving back to the community through a variety of initiatives that align with its four philanthropic pillars: helping improve health outcomes; supporting children and families in need; building community locally and internationally; and being positive stewards of the environment.
Each month, Klick supports a different charitable cause, including quarterly cornerstone campaigns in support of the Daily Bread Food Bank, Heart and Stroke Foundation, The Shoebox Project, and SickKids. The company dedicates each of the year’s remaining eight months to a different charity as nominated and voted on by Klicksters annually on #GivingTuesday. Over the last year, Klicksters have voted to support a wide range of charitable causes, including World Wildlife Fund, Operation Smile, Mélanie’s Way, and Majengo Children’s Home.
Klick it Forward
Almost a decade ago, Klick created a unique corporate giving program called Klick it Forward. Built directly into the company’s workflow on its award-winning intranet – Genome, Klick it Forward rewards Klicksters with credits to donate to charities of their choice, adding a personal touch to corporate philanthropy and has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to local and global charities since its inception.
The list of Best Workplaces™ for Giving Back is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®. The data has a 90% confidence and a plus or minus 5% margin of error.
To be eligible for this list, companies must be Great Place to Work-certified in the past year, and at least 90% of employees must feel good about the way their company contributes to the community. Great Place to Work determined the list based on companies’ overall Corporate Social Responsibility Index score from employees, as well as the range and quality of their programs that encourage workplace social responsibility.
Earlier this year, Klick was named a Best Managed Company for the 11th consecutive year. Klick is also consistently recognized as a Great Place to Work, Best Workplace for Women, and Employee Recommended Workplace.
