Rewind is honored to be named one of Canada’s 100 Top Small and Medium Employers.
Ottawa, April 5th, 2022 – Rewind is proud to be recognized today as one of Canada’s Top Small and Medium Employers (2022), announced by Mediacorp Canada Inc., organizers of the annual Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition.
“Small and medium employers have the advantage of adaptability,” says Kristina Leung, Senior Editor at Mediacorp. “They are independent and have always served as a ‘laboratory’ for the kinds of best practices we eventually see at larger employers. As new ways of working emerge, such as the growing interest in hybrid work arrangements, smaller employers have the flexibility to experiment and come up with solutions that work for everyone.”
“Early in the pandemic, smaller employers were able to respond to employees’ needs quickly and with agility,” says Anthony Meehan, Publisher at Mediacorp. “Today, the new realities for employers include labor shortages across almost every sector, which has been made more acute by other employers offering remote work from further afield. Once again, small and medium employers are responding with agility by adopting many of the benefits previously seen only at larger, more established organizations.”
“We have always believed there is a better way to build a company culture with values that respect people’s careers and personal lives,” said Mike Potter, CEO and Co-Founder of Rewind. “This recognition is really a testament to all the employees of Rewind who work hard to ensure that we live up to these values.”
Notably, Rewind was recognized by Mediacorp for its time off policies, specifically its sabbatical policy, which encourages employees to take a four-year paid sabbatical every four years. Rewind also offers paid parental leave, 7 days of paid sick leave, 3 weeks of vacation, and a paid volunteer day. Other benefits include flexible work hours and remote-friendliness, competitive salaries and an employee stock option plan, and a $5,000/year professional development budget.
