It’s official, BlueCat is now certified as a GREAT WORKPLACE by Great Place to Work® Canada.
Earning this achievement was no small feat – the process involved a thorough and independent analysis of anonymous employee feedback and an assessment of workplace practices and programs.
“In the last few years, BlueCat’s growth has exploded, in both market share and full-time employee headcount. And, we’re still hiring as fast as we can. Such aggressive growth doesn’t always come easily in terms of growing culture and increasing employee engagement,” explains Cheryl Kerrigan, VP People, BlueCat.
Often high growth companies experience pain, particularly in the form of cultural misalignment. But BlueCat has experienced the opposite – the more we grow, the stronger our culture and employee engagement becomes. In fact, the people who work at BlueCat are so satisfied with their workplace, they refer others to join them! As many of 50% of new hires come from employee referrals.
“We’ve held true to our core values and that’s allowed us to focus on getting the right people hired and on-boarded, encouraging them to participate in all aspects of BlueCat life, and giving them autonomy to do their best work. Earning this certification demonstrates we’re definitely on the right track.”
“The Great Place to Work® certification proves we’re headed in the right direction – our people are our top priority,” says Michael Harris, CEO, BlueCat. “We’ve built a culture of discovery, courage and differentiation and that’s translating into results. I’m proud of our entire team for this achievement.”
