Press Release: Bounteous Grows Toronto Office and Doubles Headcount as Canadian Footprint Expands
Global consultancy's new collaboration center focuses on client, team co-innovation
Chicago and Toronto — December 7, 2021 — Bounteous, the digital innovation partner of the world's most ambitious brands, today announced a new office in downtown Toronto, which is set to open its doors in early 2022. The new location continues a pattern of growth, with organic growth driving real estate expansion in Pittsburgh and a renovated collaboration center in Chicago, as well as adding new locations via acquisition in San Luis Obispo and Chennai, India. In late 2021, Bounteous reopened other existing locations in San Francisco, CA; Wheaton, IL; and Wilmington, DE for optional team member access, with availability of resources and collaboration space as part of their long-standing hybrid workplace model.
With 28,414 square feet in the Globe and Mail Centre, the new location will be a marquee Co-Innovation space for Bounteous team members and clients. Bounteous is the digital agency of record for Domino's Pizza Canada, and also works with Staples Canada, Home Hardware, Keter, League, and others.
Bounteous has roots as Canada's largest and most established commerce agency. In 2018, the company brought its deep expertise in digital commerce solutions to the North American enterprise of Bounteous, leveraging more than a decade of experience across hundreds of leading Canadian companies.
"The new office supports our continued commitment to our Canadian clients and the growth of our team, which has doubled headcount since the beginning of the pandemic," said Mike Brown, Chief Client Officer at Bounteous. "The Toronto team has strategically partnered to shape Bounteous into one of the industry's leading independent digital transformation agencies, recognized for its thought leadership, strategic co-innovation client enablement model, and global award-winning culture. We've been extremely fortunate to be well-positioned for attracting the city's best talent, and have successfully grown to more than 200 team members in the GTA this year."
The new Bounteous Toronto office, 351 King Street East, is one of the company's largest collaboration centers. This location, nicknamed "The Shop" by team members, is a quick walk from Union Station and located on the Streetcar line. The space includes a 5,000-square-foot outdoor patio with city views to the North, and on-site amenities like a fitness center, Starbucks, and Freshii.
The office supports the flexible, hybrid model that Bounteous maintains across its team and branches. These state-of-the-art spaces act as centralized meeting hubs for Bounteous' distributed clients and team members.
Company-wide, Bounteous boasts more than 1,500 strategists, technologists, designers, analysts, content creators, and marketers across collaboration centers in North America, Europe, and India. In addition to the Toronto expansion, Bounteous continues to invest in its collaboration centers, recently announcing that it doubled its space in Chicago and Pittsburgh. Bounteous also has a large, distributed workforce across North America, with its largest team hubs located in New York, Mexico City, Green Bay, Dallas, and Detroit.
"We are continuing to invest in our communities and our people," said Leah Weyandt, Chief People Officer at Bounteous. "That means providing the freedom for each person to work in a space that best suits their individual proclivity to learn (and produce) - whether that's from home or in an office. We believe our team members are committed and smart enough to determine when and where they should work."
Bounteous has been recognized with multiple Canadian culture-based awards over the past few years, including the 2021 Greater Toronto's Top Employers, Best Workplaces in Ontario, and Best Workplaces in Canada.
