Clio Recognized as One of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers Two Years in a Row
April 13, 2018
Clio’s focus on employee’s professional development and happiness recognized on national scale.
Vancouver, BC – Clio, the leader in cloud-based legal practice management, was recognized today as one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers by Mediacorp for the second year in a row.
“It’s an honor to once again be named one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers,” said Jack Newton, CEO and Co-founder of Clio. “Ten years ago, Rian Gauvreau and I launched Clio at ABA TECHSHOW. Back then, it was the two of us. Now, we are an organization with over 250 employees, with four offices across Canada and Dublin, Ireland. I look around and am honored to work with such an amazing team. We are one of Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers because of our employees.”
Employers are compared to other organizations in their industry to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs in the specific areas of: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement.
Clio thrives by inspiring employees to have a founder’s mentality, and by creating a deliberately developmental environment where individuals are in charge of their career development. The company works to ensure transparency through weekly company-wide meetings in all corporate choices, giving employees the opportunity and freedom to understand and own their role in the company’s success.
“For most working Canadians, it really is like finding the Holy Grail,” says Richard Yerema, Managing Editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp Canada Inc. “These employers offer fun, interesting, engaged workplaces where you can still get benefits like good maternity top-up or a decent retirement savings plan. It’s an attractive combination for employees looking to get the best of both worlds.”
To develop employees’ leadership skills, Clio offers a full-time, in-house performance coach, and a tailormade six-week program entitled Basecamp, Clio’s Foundational Manager Training Program. Basecamp develops the core skills necessary for being an effective manager at Clio, as well as equipping leaders with a deeper understanding of the organization’s people, processes, and tools. Clio designed the program content based on external research regarding best practices in management, as well as interviews with 30+ employees aimed at tailoring the program to Clio’s specific needs.
Clio also offers employees a variety of benefits including RRSP-matching, thoughtful parental leave options (for moms and dads), in addition to excellent health and dental coverage, vacation time, and support for employee education and training.
Now in its 5th year, Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers is an editorial competition that recognizes the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with the nation’s best workplaces and forward-thinking human resources policies. The annual competition is open to any employer with its head office or principal place of business in Canada. Employers must have less than 500 employees worldwide, including employees at affiliates, and be a commercial, for-profit enterprise.
