The Loopio Team

Toronto, November 23, 2023—Loopio, the leading response management software company, is thrilled to be a recipient of Waterstone Human Capital’s 2023 Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures™ award.

This national program, now in its 20th year, annually recognizes best-in-class Canadian organizations that foster high performance-driven corporate cultures that have helped them enhance performance and sustain a competitive advantage.

“From day one, we have consciously worked to build a positive workplace culture— and it’s humbling to be recognized among a short list of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures.”
Zak Hemraj, CEO of Loopio

“We believe that the employee experience is fundamental to the ultimate success of our business, and our vision supports a workplace culture in which every team member can be their true, authentic self,” says Zak Hemraj, CEO and Co-founder of Loopio.

The competition selection committee evaluated Loopio’s submission based on a variety of aspects of the employee experience, including vision and leadership; recruitment and hiring; people development and talent management; cultural alignment and measurement; diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB); corporate social responsibility; and organizational performance.

Loopio’s unique, high-performing culture is an everyday reflection of its core values—mastery, candor, curiosity, support, and grit—and it continues to introduce new initiatives to support health and wellness, employee engagement, and professional development in a remote-first workplace. These include:

  • Championing Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) through multiple initiatives, including an annual, company-wide DEIB survey conducted to develop strategies, and a three-year DEIB strategy published to maintain accountability
  • Five additional company-wide long weekends (Loopio Long Weekends) to refresh and recharge
  • Established Core Hours to ensure employees in different time zones can collaborate at manageable working hours
  • Working While Travelling program where employees can work from locations outside their Hub Region

“We are so proud to be recognized as one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures,” says Alexis MacDonald, Senior Vice President of People at Loopio.

“This honour is celebrated by all of us here at Loopio, and I want to specifically thank our dedicated Loopers for all they have done, and continue to do, to help earn this prestigious award.”
