Alida ranks #7 on ‘Best 50’ list out of over 60,000 entrants
TORONTO - December 17, 2020 - Alida (formerly Vision Critical), creator of the world’s first Customer Experience Management (CXM) and insights platform, today announced it has been selected as a 2020 “Best Company for Diversity” awardee from Comparably, ranking #7 on the “Best 50” list of small/mid-sized companies. The award symbolizes the positive employee experience that Alida’s diverse team members have had during their tenure at the company.
“When our people feel free to bring their authentic selves to work every day, there is no limit to how great our company can be,” said Ross Wainwright, CEO of Alida. “We believe that our culture is enriched when we embrace each other’s differences. There is so much strength that can be drawn from a workplace that values equality, inclusivity and respect for one another. Despite this terrific recognition, I remain focused on looking at ways we can continue to improve. This is very much a process versus an event. There is so much more we can learn from our employees.”
Company winners were chosen based on the anonymous feedback they received from employees that identified as being from diverse backgrounds. Alida employees ranked the company exceptionally well for experience, pay equity, support from leadership, and overall culture.
“While we continue our work to make our company more diverse, we are also hard at work making Alida the most inclusive company in the technology space,” said Hermina Khara, VP People & Talent at Alida. “We have altered our recruiting processes, launched a Diversity and Inclusion Council, conducted all-staff calls/surveys and continue to celebrate our diversity as a top priority. When you focus on diversity and inclusion as a priority within the business, there is no better compliment than knowing that our employees recognize and are proud of the efforts we have made.”
“Employers who create workplaces that inspire, encourage, and support all diverse voices and contributions are critical to business growth, creativity, and innovation,” said Comparably CEO Jason Nazar. “Our annual Best Companies for Diversity list highlights organizations like Alida that have been given top marks by their employees of color on important core culture metrics, including compensation, leadership, and career opportunities."
