About Great Place to Work Canada

The Great Place to Work Certification is an accreditation that demonstrates to the market that you are an employer of choice. The certification helps you become an even better workplace through reporting, analysis, and the next steps to enable a more successful company culture. To be certified, we must have had received an over 70% positive response from at least 10 of our employees’ confidential survey results on how they find mako design to be a positive place to work in with great company culture. Each certification is valid for a month, which encourages us as a company to keep up with company culture and employee perks so that we have renewed our certification each year and continue being a great company to work for!
