Alida received this highly esteemed recognition after an independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work® in collaboration with Microsoft Canada.
Earlier this week Alida announced that it will be piloting a 4-day work week for all employees kicking off in July 2022.
Founded on the West Coast over 20 years ago as Vision Critical, Alida is a customer experience management and customer insights platform that allows companies to collect valuable customer feedback and voice of employee data.
Alida currently employs approximately 500 employees with 200 working in Vancouver.
“It’s an honor for Alida to be recognized as a best workplace for hybrid work in Canada,” said Ross Wainwright, CEO of Alida.
“Through the many challenges that our employees have faced during the pandemic, it was crucial that we paid attention to a working model that best suited their needs. This award is a direct reflection of our efforts in taking action on our employees’ feedback and we look forward to continuing to grow our work environment and culture through carefully listening to their voices.”
Alida believes a strong culture is one that is built on prioritizing the employee experience (EX). By using its own TXM Platform, the organization runs regular employee pulse surveys that see over 90% participation rates.
With these gathered insights, Alida was able to understand and take action on the changing needs of its employee base, resulting in an effective and resilient pivot towards hybrid work.
Alida made the decision to move to a 4-day work week after listening to employee feedback using its own Voice of Employee technology.
The Best Workplaces™ for Hybrid Work is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®. To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work-Certified™ in the past year and have their employees complete a hybrid work questionnaire.
