Since 2020, many Canadians shifted to working from home. And by 2021, companies across Canada began introducing a hybrid work culture. And now, Great Place to Work and Microsoft Canada announced the Best Workplaces for Hybrid Work in 2022.

According to the report, which is a comprehensive, data-led analysis of hybrid work culture in Canada, organizations surveyed represent the voices of 221,230 employees from across the country.

The report states that more and more employers are embracing the hybrid model of work, in fact, 75% of the Best Workplaces surveyed have formal policies around it.

“Work is rapidly transforming. Evolving with change is the only way to survive, and the Best Hybrid Workplaces are doing just that. This is much deeper than simply agreeing to flexible work arrangements,” states a release by Great Place to Work.

“Hybrid organizations are intentionally focused on designing productivity and communication systems that allow people to work however they work best and, leveraging technology to maintain connectivity and build culture – all with a fundamental desire to enable, and capitalize on, and optimize human potential.”

They also say that companies can no longer solely rely on office spaces for employees to collaborate, connect and build social capital.

“Organizations that have emerged as the best hybrid workplaces are those who have invested in the wellbeing of their employees by embracing an experimental, agile approach to how and where work gets done,” says Kevin Peesker, President, Microsoft Canada. “If we continue to practice flexibility, invest in the right technology and listen closely to balance organization and employee needs, together we can create better workplaces for everyone.”

The Best Workplaces for Hybrid Work organizations outperformed the competition with their “unique and special benefits, robust training opportunities for professional development, and commitment to employee recognition and appreciation.”

They range across industries, with Technology, Professional Services and Financial Services and Insurance firms making up nearly half of the winners.
