A global leader in powering loyalty commerce, Points (PTS) has ranked 10th on the 2021 list of Best Workplaces™ in Canada.

This is the seventh consecutive year that the Toronto-based loyalty tech company, that partners with close to 60 of the world’s largest loyalty programs, has received this prestigious accolade.

Last year the company ranked 17th overall. Points has also been included on the 2021 list of Best Workplaces™ for Women in Canada; the sixth time that the company has featured within this highly-regarded ranking.

Presented by the Great Place to Work® Institute, the award identifies organizations that foster exceptional work environments and cultures that promote the growth and development of their team members.

“We are honoured to be included in this highly-regarded ranking once more and to be listed among the Top 10 companies,” commented Inez Murdoch, Chief People Officer for Points.

“We have been so impressed by the pride and engagement of our employees as we have navigated this period of extreme change together and our culture has remained steadfast during this extended period of remote working,” added Murdoch.

Rob MacLean, CEO of Points also welcomed the news, ”The perseverance demonstrated by our employees has been nothing short of inspiring.”

“It is thanks to their ongoing dedication that we were able not only to maintain all our lines of business but to actually expand them and take on new partners during this difficult year,” concluded MacLean.

Points made a number of enhancements to assist employees as they transitioned to a new work environment.

Points continued its commitment to offering a number of resources to support employee health and wellbeing such as the C$3,000 annual mental health benefit.

In addition, the annual green commuter benefit was transformed into a work from home credit to enable employees to buy office equipment and options to use the fitness credit were expanded to include at-home workout opportunities.

To acknowledge the pace and intensity of working remotely and balancing at-home responsibilities during the pandemic, Points blocked off calendars with ‘no meeting zones’ at noon and Friday afternoons.

The popular Friday afternoon snack cart office social hour moved online to become a weekly zoom mixer where themes ranged from scavenger hunts to Jeopardy-style challenges.

In addition to supporting local restaurants, Points also made a donation to the Daily Food Bank.

The 2021 Best Workplaces™ in Canada list is compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute.

The competition process to be ranked 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.
Great Place to Work® is the global authority on high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures.

Points, is a trusted partner to the world’s leading loyalty programs, leveraging its unique Loyalty Commerce Platform to build, power, and grow a network of ways members can get and use their favourite loyalty currency.
