MakeShift Recognized as a Great Place to Work® in Canada
CALGARY, Alberta — MakeShift, a cloud-based employee scheduling and time tracking platform, is proud to announce its Great Place to Work® certification after a thorough, independent analysis conducted by the Great Place to Work Institute®. The award is based entirely on what current employees have to say about their experience working at the company via an extensive, anonymous survey.
Based on the survey results, well over 90% of MakeShift employees believe strongly that they work in a fair and respectful environment and feel a sense of pride and camaraderie.
This distinction comes at a time of accelerated growth under CEO Adam Greenberg’s leadership and underscores the company’s commitment to fostering a positive employee experience, with inclusivity, equity, and ample opportunity to make a real difference in society.
“MakeShift gives shift workers their time back to focus on what really matters to them. It's not easy to create an app that cuts the time it takes to build schedules by as much as 83% and reduces the time to fill open shifts by as much as 55%," said Adam Greenberg, CEO. “This type of innovation, which gives workers control over their schedules, is only made possible through a dedicated team of employees. An engaged workforce that’s proud of the work they do and why they do it, is certainly one of the things that really matters to me."
MakeShift’s growth strategy which is rooted in the belief that happier employees drive growth as they provide exceptional customer experience, is already proving successful. The company was recently recognized as a Top Employee Scheduling Software by Gartner Digital Markets based on customer feedback.
Nancy Fonseca, Senior Vice President of Great Place to Work® Canada, says that a great workplace is about the level of trust that employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs, and the extent to which they enjoy their colleagues. "Our data shows that great workplaces benefit from stronger financial performance, reduced turnover, and better customer satisfaction than their peers. What's more, work environments with trust at the foundation are ripe for innovation, agility, resilience, and efficiency," Fonseca said.
As the company celebrates this award, the team is gearing up for an exciting Q4 2022. MakeShift will soon be available on the SAP® Store bringing its intelligent employee scheduling solution to new and existing SAP SuccessFactors® customers.If you’re looking for a staff scheduling solution, visit makeshift.ca for a 14-day trial.
