Clio is one of only 40 companies recognized for their commitment to corporate culture.
Vancouver, BC—Clio, the leader in cloud-based legal technology, was named one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures™ in the mid-market category by Waterstone Human Capital, Canada’s leading cultural talent management firm. This national program recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations for fostering high-performance corporate cultures that help sustain a competitive advantage. This will be the fourth year in which Clio has been included on the list.
“We are honoured to be named as one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures,” said Jack Newton, CEO and Co-founder of Clio. “As we continue to grow as a company, we’ve made a concerted effort to build and sustain an amazing environment for our people to thrive. Our culture of human and high-performing people is what’s allowed us to achieve so much as a business, and it’s what keeps everyone excited about being a part of this organization.”
Clio’s success story is one of rapid growth—a testament to both the market opportunity ahead and the human and high-performing culture the organization has created. Clio was founded on the idea of creating a space where people can thrive, and the company strives to build a culture that values personal and professional growth across the organization. To achieve this, the company cultivates a founder’s mindset among staff, encouraging team members to take initiative in having a meaningful impact on the company’s growth, as well as their own personal development.
“By encouraging individuals to shape Clio’s future, we help them determine their own learning and career trajectory—and we find that being personally invested in the company vision is what keeps staff engaged and doing their best work,” said Newton.
To recognize and reward contributions, Clio offers shares in the business, which reinforces the Founder’s Mentality—since everyone ultimately benefits from the company’s success. Staff also have the opportunity to recognize other staff contributions, like a founder would, by logging public “kudos” to recognize colleagues who go above and beyond.
Staff are also encouraged to contribute to Clio’s giving initiatives by allowing every employee to dedicate three days of paid volunteer time to a charitable initiative of their choice. In fact, so many of Clio’s giving initiatives come from staff themselves. Additionally, Clio’s People and Experience team and Diversity & Inclusion resource group have also been involved in planning, participating, and promoting many of our community events and donations.
“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.”
Clio’s culture has helped attract nearly 500 employees to the organization, and it’s received nearly 16,000 applicants in the past year alone. According to Glassdoor, an online employer review site, the company has earned an overall 4.4 rating from 125 employees—of which 88% would recommend working at Clio to a friend and 93% approve of the CEO.
