TORONTO, ON – March 7, 2019 – For excellence in business performance, Klick Inc. was today named a 2019 Best Managed Company for the 11th year running. The company was also included in Best Managed Companies’ Platinum Club for the fifth consecutive year for its ongoing outstanding management practices
Klick President Lori Grant said, “We are proud of our legacy as a Best Managed Company and Platinum Club member and couldn’t be more appreciative to our team members for powering our growth with their brilliant thinking, passion, camaraderie, and hard work.”
“This year’s Best Managed winners are a testament to the success found when businesses invest in talent, innovate intentionally, and think long-term,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.
“Companies that earn Platinum Club status, exemplify exceptional vision and leadership and a sustained commitment to growth and innovation,” added Dino Medves, Senior Vice President and Head, CIBC Commercial Banking.
To support its continued double-digit growth, the 21-year-old independent company added a new Customer Success Team and in-house production studio over the last year. Klick also expanded its workspace footprint with a redesign of its Toronto headquarters that tripled the size of its digital health innovation lab and transformed a former retail bank location into an expansive café for Klicksters, complete with stadium seating and a summer patio. With steadfast focus on its people-centric culture and “the relentless pursuit of awesome,” Klick also updated its onboarding program and expanded its KlickU in-house management training program.
In 2018, Klick won five Best Workplace awards and, in January, Ad Age named Klick a 2019 Best Workplace, based on survey results examining a wide range of criteria, including diversity and inclusion policies, growth, employee advancement opportunities, compensation, benefits, perks, and resources, such as mentoring programs.
