Optimus SBR Named as 2020 Great Place to Work


For the second consecutive year, Optimus SBR is thrilled and honoured to be named on the 2020 list of Best Workplaces in Professional Services, and as one of this year’s Best Workplaces™ in Canada. This year, we’ve also been named to the inaugural list of Best Workplaces in Ontario.

The news of our placement on the lists of Best Workplace and the Top 50 Best Workplaces in Canada comes at a time when the world is in crisis. We are humbled to be recognized once again and will continue to focus on and grow our culture in order to continue to be one of Canada’s Best Workplaces.

Throughout the crisis, our mantra has been “working together, while staying apart”. Our culture is one of the cornerstones of our business, and now more than ever we are laser focused on keeping our culture at the forefront. During this time, even though we are apart, we want to ensure our team feels connected, supported, and encouraged. The happiness and engagement of our people is a direct correlation to our success. “We see ourselves as part of one large family and that is what makes us a great workplace. Our team of incredible people continue to believe in our vision of building a different kind of consulting firm, and has helped make us one of the Best Workplaces in Canada,” shares Kevin Gauci, CEO.

The Great Place to Work® Institute compiles the Best Workplace lists by gaining direct feedback from employees from the hundreds of organizations that are surveyed.

Best Workplace Professional Services

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.

Best Workplace in Ontario

To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year, be headquartered in Ontario, and have at least 10 employees working in the province that participated in our Trust Index employee survey. Great Place to Work determined the best based on the overall Trust Index score from these employees.

Best Workplaces™ in Canada

The competition process for Best Workplaces Canada is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from confidential employee survey results and the remaining one-third comes 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 received over 400 registrations and over 80,000 employees participated in the 2020 “Best Workplaces™ in Canada” survey, rolling out to impact over 300,000 Canadian employees.
