Following our recent achievement of being ranked 27th in our category of the top 50 Best Workplaces in Canada in 2019 by Great Place to Work®, we are proud to announce that our organization has been named on two additional 2019 lists of Best Workplaces™ – Professional Services and Mental Wellness. At Optimus SBR, our success is directly correlated to the happiness and engagement of our people. Each of us embody the entrepreneurial spirit and have something unique to contribute to the fabric of our organization.
The 2019 Best Workplaces™ for Professional Services and Mental Wellness lists are compiled by the Great Place to Work® Institute. To be eligible for the Professional Services list, organizations must be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year, work primarily in the Professional Services Industry, and offer customized, knowledge-based services to clients. To be eligible for the Mental Wellness list, organizations must also be Great Place to Work Certified™ and at least 80% of employees must agree their workplace is psychologically and emotionally healthy. Great Place to Work® determines the best based on the overall Mental Wellness Index score from employees, as well as the range and quality of programs which encourage mental wellness.
About Optimus SBR
Optimus SBR was built on a simple but powerful premise; Let’s build a consulting organization where we would want to work. An organization where our employees come first, culture is key, and our clients would love to work with us. Since inception in 2010, Optimus SBR has understood that success was dependent on creating a positive and engaging workplace. We have a number of employee-led committees: Corporate Social Responsibility, Ministry of Fun, Optimus Women’s Network, People & Culture, Health & Wellness, Geek Lab, and Pro Bono. Each of these committees takes great pride in defining and executing on our amazing culture, both internally and externally. We are Canada’s largest independent consulting firm and in less than a decade, we have increased our employee headcount nearly tenfold. We have also been consistently named one of the fastest growing companies in North America, and recognized several times as a top employer.
