Company’s steadfast commitment to people-centric culture leads to happiness and growth
TORONTO, ON – November 27, 2019 – Klick today announced it has been recognized for having one of the country’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures. In winning the coveted award for the second time, only given to 40 organizations nationwide each year, Klick credited its almost 1,000 Klicksters and the role they play in bringing the company’s unique culture to life and ongoing double-digit growth.
“We are proud to have a Most Admired Corporate Culture and are very grateful to our growing family of Klicksters who consistently embrace our cultural behaviors and make Klick one of the best places to work in the world,” said Klick President Lori Grant. “There’s something different that happens when you put your people first and align your culture with optimism, empathy, drive, trustworthiness, and kindness and for us, that difference has led to happy team members, happy clients and significant growth.”
“At Waterstone, we believe corporate culture drives performance and that it’s an organization’s greatest asset,” said Marty Parker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Waterstone Human Capital and Chair of Canada’s Most Admired™ CEO Awards. “What’s remarkable about this year’s group of winning organizations is their commitment to corporate culture and their success in leveraging that culture as a competitive advantage. They each set a high bar when it comes to building great, high performance cultures that ultimately drive organizational growth and power the performance of their teams.”
