TORONTO, May 31, 2021 - Carly Rian Corp. o/a Carly Rian Group (“CRG") is proud to announce we have been certified as a Great Place to Work® after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by the Great Place to Work Institute® Canada. This certification is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive anonymous survey about their workplace experience and a review of our company culture. 

“We are proud to be recognized as a ‘Great Place to Work’.  We are deeply committed to our team and culture as a key differentiator.  As our firm continues to grow and evolve, we will maintain our emphasis on open and consistent communication and a level of trust that directly contributes to our team’s ability to thrive and succeed both personally and professionally.”   

- Adam Godfrey, Managing Partner 

CRG is committed to maintaining an inclusive, connected culture while continuing to navigate challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic (“COVID”). Since the start of the pandemic, we focused on optimizing abilities to deliver in a virtual/remote operating model to drive employee and customer engagement. This is key to how we support our clients and how they engage, but also critical to how we ensure our own culture continues to drive value and engagement with our team. Internally, we have focused on supporting our team members through COVID by closely listening to their needs and deploying technology and training to ensure we are increasing skills to optimize communication. As the pandemic has continued, we have developed programs to stay connected in a virtual world, including regular ‘all hands’ update meetings, online social activities (virtual cocktail hours), replacing our annual team celebration trip with a socially distanced alternative, catered holiday dinner to team member homes, and a firm-wide and individualized focus on mental health.  

“I have witnessed the company culture change and evolve over my last 10 years with the firm, and it is great to see this certification recognize all of the hard work the team has put into developing and living the CRG values.”   

- Jason Mattka, Principal Consultant 

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.
