Jobber, Edmonton, Alberta, a provider of job tracking and customer management software, has been named one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures for 2020. This national program founded by Waterstone Human Capital recognizes Canadian organizations with cultures that enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage.
“It’s a privilege to work alongside such an amazing group of people here at Jobber,” says Sam Pillar, CEO and co-founder at Jobber. “Being recognized as one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures is an honor and validates that we’re doing the right things internally in pursuit of our mission of helping people in small business be successful.”
“2020 has proven to be the ultimate litmus test for the strength of a company's culture,” says Sara Cooper, chief people officer at Jobber. “It’s because of the earlier investments we’ve made in building Jobber’s corporate culture that made the transition to a remote work environment largely seamless.”
To ensure that every employee is equipped to deliver on Jobber’s mission, the company focuses on fostering a positive workplace environment committed to transparency, inclusivity and collaboration.
Despite moving its physical workforce online, Jobber has been able to continue programs that have become part of its workplace identity such as hackathons, town halls, socials, career coaching, and learning and development opportunities by making them available virtually.
Over the past year, Jobber has also been recognized as one of Canada’s top 10 workplaces by Great Place to Work and appeared on the Best Workplaces lists for inclusion, millennials, women, technology, youth, giving back and others.
