Axonify Recognized as a Great Place to Work®

Posted on: April 28, 2017

Toronto, ON – Axonify, the company behind the world’s first Employee Knowledge Platform, is once again being recognized as one of this year’s Best Workplaces in Canada, ranking #10. This list, and related stories, will appear in a special national report on Thursday, April 27, 2017 in The Globe and Mail.

Besides being a great place to work, Axonify also empowers other businesses around the world to become great places to work through its Employee Knowledge Platform. The platform provides a powerful, fun, and engaging way for employees to learn that helps equip them with the right knowledge so they can be successful in their roles. Axonify employees are proud of their product and services, and every day witness firsthand how the Employee Knowledge Platform positively affects customers.

“At Axonify we want every employee to believe that what they do matters,” said Carol Leaman, President and CEO of Axonify. “Every decision, every interaction, and every piece of work produced contributes to our being a better company. And at the end of their careers we want everyone to say that Axonify was the best place they ever worked.”

This list of “Best Workplaces in Canada” is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a 58-statement survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great place to work®: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

This year’s list received more than 400 nominations and more than 60,000 employees participated in the 2017 “Best Workplaces in Canada” survey.
