Clio’s human and high-performing culture, supported by generous employee benefits and wellness programs, help distinguish the company as an exceptional place to work
Vancouver, BC, February 16, 2021 – Clio, the leader in cloud-based legal technology, was named one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People and BC’s Top Employers. These prestigious awards celebrate employers offering the nation’s best workplaces and programs that focus on intentional and meaningful career growth. Clio was recognized for its continued focus on intentional development and for the way it pivoted its operations to support employees in a time of uncertainty.
“It’s an honour to continue to be recognized for our work in building a culture of deliberate development,” said Jack Newton, CEO, and Co-founder of Clio. “I am humbled to see how the team has evolved our award-winning culture by collaborating in new ways and continuing to challenge and develop our teams despite the challenges of the past year. We look forward to continually encouraging employees to pursue new ideas while giving them access to the mentorship and resources they need to grow.”
Clio’s culture of deliberate development makes it possible for employees to fully integrate their professional and personal growth in ways that are constructive, generative, and connective. Clio invests in the next generation by building custom leadership development programs in-house, having a dedicated in-house coach to work with individuals and teams, and making multi-directional feedback a part of their organizational operating system.
Clio also recognizes the importance of supporting employees every day, in a way that’s not just related to work. When the pandemic escalated, Clio continued–and expanded–on health and wellness programs for all staff once the global team began working remotely. Employees are encouraged to join Zoom workout classes, ranging from yoga to tabata, or take some time to slow down through guided meditations (led by a fellow Clion). From daily company-wide huddles to virtual wellness initiatives, Clio provides their team with outlets to connect and collaborate with their colleagues while working from home.
The Clio team also continues to support the community and create connections in the midst of this ever-changing landscape. As a highly connected organization, Jack Newton, Clio’s CEO, deeply understood that for many, social distancing comes with social isolation. Recognizing that this new reality is hard for employees and business owners alike, he reached out to Vancouver-based Nelson the Seagull coffeehouse and bakeshop to equip each Clio employee globally with their own sourdough-making kit. This was a way to support a small local business while also creating another initiative in which Clio employees could connect and share their experiences.
Instead of waiting for things to go back to normal, Clio is embracing a new world of working, one that is more inclusive and comprehensive of employee and organizational needs for flexibility. The Clio organization will be designed to operate with a fully remote workforce, supported by world-class physical offices maintained and operated as hubs within key urban centers in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Dublin. This framework will perpetually shape how the company continues to operate toward its goals for the foreseeable future, and beyond.
This award adds to the impressive list of recognition Clio has been proud to accept over recent months that speak to its impressive and highly-admired workplace culture. Most recently, Jack Newton, CEO, and Co-founder of Clio has been awarded by Waterstone Human Capital as Canada’s Most Admired CEO, and Person of the Year at the 2020 Technology Impact Awards, held by the BC Tech Association. Clio has also been recognized as having one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures by Waterstone Human Capital.
