London-Based Northern Commerce Named One of The Best Workplaces in Canada
LONDON, ON -- Apr. 16, 2021 -- London-based Northern Commerce has been recognized as one of the "Best Workplaces in Canada" by Great Place to Work Canada, ranking 14th on the list of 50 Best Workplaces with under 100 employees. This recognition comes on the heels of the company's March designation as one of "The Best Workplaces for Women."
“Creating a compassionate, inclusive, and rewarding company culture that empowers our employees through strong mentorship and respect has been the foundation of our success,” says Michael DeLorenzi, President of Northern Commerce. “Following a year of extreme uncertainty, the recognition as one of Canada’s Best Workplaces™ speaks to the tremendous strength and dedication of the team members at Northern.”
Northern received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work® Canada. This national recognition follows Northern’s most recent accolades as one of the Best Workplaces™ for Women this past March. In 2020, Northern was recognized as one of the Best Workplaces™ for Today’s Youth™ and Best Workplaces in Ontario™.
The 2021 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute. The competition process to rank on this list is employee driven, based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results and the remaining one-third from an in-depth review of the organization’s culture. 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 five trust-building dimensions: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. This year’s list captured the experience and sentiment of over 82,000 employees, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees.
Following the acquisition of Digital Echidna, Northern now employs over 175 multi-disciplinary team members in web development, digital marketing, and user experience design.
Founded on core values of innovation, community, and excellence, Northern fosters an environment where employee engagement and organizational culture are at the forefront of all that the company does. Northern provides a strong foundation for inclusion through employee recognition programs, professional development, mentorship, and employee benefits.
As the company continues to expand, Northern continues to explore new ideas and processes to improve the experience for its teams. “Our goals can only be achieved by providing an inclusive workforce where each employee feels valued and secure to fully engage in their work every day,” says Michael DeLorenzi, President of Northern Commerce.
