tbk Awarded Great Place to Work® Certification

December 22, 2022

tbk is recognized as a Great Place to Work®. The Great Place to Work® certification recognizes employers who create an outstanding employee experience. Employee feedback is the primary determinant used in selecting winners, alongside independent analysis.

“This award is the culmination of years of knowing that when we invest in people, excellence is on the other side,” says Melissa McInerney, CEO and founder of tbk. “That’s been our mission since tbk’s inception, one that rejects the typical ‘hustle’ agency lifestyle. We’ve created a workplace where people feel empowered and respected—and that includes respect for our personal lives. We work hard and we are kind.”

Here are just some of the many reasons why tbk was recognized as a Great Place to Work®:

Paid Fridays Off in the Summer

Eligible employees receive paid Fridays off throughout the months of July and August to explore, unwind, and refresh. tbk knows that long weekends (Refresh Fridays) boost productivity. The four-day work weeks throughout the summer months are incredible motivators, encouraging tbk’s team to do more in less time without compromising its high standards.

Flexible Work Schedule (Root Hours)

Employees are expected to be online and available for meetings/collaboration between 10:30a.m. – 3:00p.m. EST. People are free to choose when they work the rest of their hours. Early birds work at first light. Night owls work after the sun has set. Employees have greater flexibility to make appointments, enjoy the sunshine, and spend time with their children before they go to sleep.

Hybrid Work Model

tbk has perfected the art of remote and hybrid work.  By allowing its highly driven, self-motivated team members to work from anywhere, tbk team members are empowered to produce high-caliber deliverables with less interruptions and distractions. tbkers can choose to work from the comfort of their home or visit our downtown London office for in-person collaboration and learning.

Professional Development & Mentorship

tbk intentionally hires forever curious people who want to self-actualize and become the best versions of themselves. tbk allocates financial support and time off for dozens of courses and professional development programs, empowering employees to direct the future of their careers.

Furry Coworkers & Pet Compassion

tbk has a pet-friendly office and a culture of pet lovers across Canada. Additionally, tbk’s Molly Fund supports staff members with large, unexpected veterinary bills (as well as select pet owners in the community).

“Our data shows that great workplaces benefit from stronger financial performance, reduced turnover, and better customer satisfaction than their peers,” says Nancy Fonseca, Senior Vice President of Great Place to Work® Canada. “[They’re] ripe for innovation, agility, resilience, and efficiency.”

tbk is proud to be on this coveted list and would like to thank Great Place to Work® Canada and all tbk’s valued employees for this certification.
