Accolade for excellence in achieving healthy, engaged & productive workplaces based entirely on team member feedback
TORONTO, ON/NEW YORK, NY – March 20, 2018 – Klick Inc. has been recognized with the top Employee Recommended Workplace Award in the Large Employer – Private Company category for the second consecutive year. The awards were announced earlier today at a private ceremony recognizing organizations that have achieved high standards for healthy workplaces, as reported by their employees, and identifying these companies as employers of choice.
“We are incredibly proud that Klick has been recognized again for curating an engaging workplace for our team,” said Klick Co-Founder and CEO Leerom Segal. “Our gratitude extends to all our Klicksters who continue to inspire us on a daily basis with their amazing passion, creativity, positive energy, and empathy for others. We started this quest two decades ago with a people-first philosophy, so it’s especially rewarding to see Klick continuing to serve as an inviting and meaningful place to work while we continue to thrive and grow.”
Today, the company also celebrated the United Nations’ International Day of Happiness by bringing puppies, Taco Tuesday, a make-your-own sundae bar, and other special employee-centric perks into its offices in response to a recent internal poll asking Klicksters what would make them “more happy today.”
About one-quarter of participants said bringing puppies (or their own dogs) into the office would bring them joy; over 20 percent said they would love more free food and drink, such as gourmet cupcakes, ice cream, and barista-grade coffee; 13 percent put surprise extra vacation time at the top of their happy list; and 10 percent said getting free tickets for cultural attractions or travel would be blissful. Other top responses included getting in-office manicures and salon treatments, formal afternoon tea service, and doing more corporate philanthropy.
The company is also donating $5 for every Klickster happiness post on its intranet to The Shoebox Project in support of local women’s shelters. Earlier this month, Klick was named a Best Managed Company for the 10th consecutive year and the Best Workplace for Women for the third year in a row.
The Employee Recommended Workplace Award recognizes excellence in achieving a healthy, engaged and productive workforce. It is the only award of its kind that is based entirely on feedback from employees. Employees were asked to complete a short confidential survey that includes questions about their physical and mental health, as well as aspects of their work and life – all elements of Total Health that impact employee engagement and productivity. On completion, they received a personal assessment that identified potential areas for improvement. Organizations received a summary report that identified areas of strength and areas where more work may be needed to improve the health of their workforce.
