Security Compass, a software security company that provides organizations technology to balance secure software development with speed to market, has been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Workplaces™ for the second year in a row. Security Compass was ranked 27th among the top 50 companies with 100-999 employees that were listed as Best Workplaces in 2020.
Security Compass received this honor after a rigorous and independent analysis conducted by the Great Place to Work Institute. The results are based on ratings collected by a confidential employee survey and an in-depth review of the organization’s culture. Together, they provide crucial data relative to the five trust-building dimensions of a great workplace: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.
“We set out to build a high-trust, high-performance culture at Security Compass, and we are very grateful to be recognized by Great Place to Work among other extraordinary companies with sought after workplaces,” says Rohit Sethi, CEO, Security Compass. “Every member of our team has played a part in shaping the positive atmosphere at Security Compass, and I am endlessly proud of our talented, agile and inclusive people. Knowing that our employees are proud to work for this company is something our leadership team does not take for granted. We strive to build on this every day by continuously looking for new ways to foster a diverse and supportive culture.”
Security Compass has invested in a multitude of initiatives with the goal of building a stronger company culture and fostering an environment where employee feedback is welcomed and addressed. Sessions dedicated to growing understanding and support of the LGBTQIA+ community, job fairs catering to women and underrepresented groups, use of gender-neutral language and a formalized process on removing unconscious bias from the interview process are just a few examples of the efforts that Security Compass is making to maintain a diverse environment.
Flexible hours and an open paid time off policy are just a few of the many company perks. All employees have a flexible schedule with unlimited personal days and the option to work from home. Managers want their team members to have a healthy work-life balance and offer employees the utmost autonomy in creating a work schedule that works for them. Monthly one-on-one meetings are arranged between employees and their direct managers to ensure personal and professional goal alignment, and each employee is set up with a ‘buddy’ from another department to discuss workplace challenges.
Security Compass offers challenging work and cutting-edge research in an openly collaborative environment that encourages employees to explore ideas and test new theories. In addition to being named one of the best workplaces in Canada, Security Compass was also recognized by Great Place to Work in the categories of Best Workplaces for Mental Wellness, Best Workplaces for Women, Best Workplaces for Inclusion and Best Workplaces for Millennials.
