Traction on Demand – 3rd Best Medium Sized Employer in Canada

Burnaby-based cloud technology company Traction on Demand named the 3rd best medium sized employer in Canada by Great Place to Work.

GPTW-logoBURNABY, BC – April 17th, 2014 – Traction on Demand, a Burnaby-based cloud technology services company with extensive expertise on the Salesforce.com platform has been recognized by Great Place to Work Canada as the 3rd best employer nationally for medium sized companies with 50-1000 employees. 2014 marks the first year that Traction has applied for the designation.

Traction’s CEO and founder Greg Malpass is truly humbled by the award and recognition. He believes his company won the award because of its unwavering commitment to operating on socially conscious business practices. “Traction is an organization born with an obsession with the question ‘why’ and we’ve broken a lot of business paradigms as a result of this. I will be the first to admit that we’ve often made things more difficult for ourselves by ‘rethinking’ a lot of this business; at the center of every decision is careful consideration around people, relationships and community. In fact, we consider ourselves a community not a company. This Great Place to Work designation is a big deal. It’s the only program that uses data science to evaluate companies, removing all biases. This is a milestone in Traction’s life and mine. I am so proud of them.”

Two-thirds of the designation’s criteria are based on employee feedback garnered through an exhaustive workplace survey. The survey asked respondents for information on their workplace culture, opportunities for growth within the organization and overall satisfaction with the company’s people practices. The other third of the criteria was based on a cultural audit, highlighting innovative and unique workplace practices as well as an audit of employee compensation and benefits.
