Why iWave Made the List of Great Places to Work

It’s official, iWave is a Great Place to Work®.

iWave is proud to announce that we have been certified as a Great Place to Work® after a thorough, independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work Institute® Canada. This certification is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about their workplace experience, and a deep dive into employee culture. This recognition means that iWave surpassed the requirements in all 5 categories: credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie.

“One of the things that excites us the most about this recognition is that it came directly from our team,” said Ross Beattie, President and CEO at iWave. “Our employees mean everything to us. It is their passion and dedication to our mission that makes iWave so successful and ultimately helps our clients achieve their world-changing missions.”

Every employee at iWave works together towards a common goal, to help nonprofits fundraise smarter and accelerate the great work they do every day to make the world a better place.

If you were to pop by any town hall, onto a zoom call, or had the opportunity to stop by the head office, you’d quickly see why iWave is a Great Place to Work. Genuine camaraderie throughout is apparent. With leaders working side-by-side with their teams, they collectively work together to ensure the best client experience and best product is available. This collaborative approach and dedication to excellence together lead to a tight-knit organization as a whole. The team really does look out for one another and support each other every step of the way. At iWave, we feel like a family.

We could talk about the benefits, the treats, the perks, our very own mascot (you know Wally, right?), but that’s only a small portion of what makes iWave a Great Place to Work®. What really makes iWave a Great Place to Work is the people, the collaboration across teams and the leadership. The feeling of being part of something special, something bigger and more important than ourselves, something we can be proud of. Getting to be a small part of the fundraising community as a whole is what makes iWave team members value their employer and makes iWave one of the top 50 employers in their category in Canada!

“Working with iWave has been an amazing experience,” says Content Marketing Manager, Bre Alexander. “Getting to work with the best minds in the industry while helping nonprofit organizations is something I can be extremely proud of. It’s a truly awesome feeling to come to work and know you’re making a difference. A huge bonus is that we get to have fun while doing it!”

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.
